Expert Q & A Answers About erection problems

I’ve slept on the couch, been depressed and been on medication. I cheated and told her about it. Now we’re trying to work it out and we’re seeing a therapist, but I can’t seem to get excited by her. I love her and feel depressed over the whole thing. What’s the problem?
