September 3, 2014 Wednesday 7-9pm  LIVING WELL WITH ED (ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION) SUPPORT GROUP FOR MEN
Men generally have a difficult time talking about issues concerning their erections. Studies have shown that even general practitioners have a difficult time talking to their male patients about ED. Yet, when men present with ED, they have many emotional feelings that accompany their ED; depression, isolation, unworthiness, unmanly, unloved, and incompetence.
The LIVING WELL WITH ED SUPPORT GROUP is open to men only aged 19‐90 and will help deal with these feelings and reduce stress and anxiety through empowerment, understanding, acceptance, information sharing, emotional identification, and role modeling.
Meetings will be on the first Wednesday of each month.
