Alex - There are a lot of guys in this forum who would kill for those nighttime erections. Being cancer free and experiencing erections is a cause for celebration. Take comfort in the things that are going right and exercise patience with the things that will take more time.
I wasn't trying to chastize you last night. I was trying to spark you back to reality and you took the cue. We get so wrapped up in our own losses in this prostate cancer experience that we forget that our families have a lot of grief and concern too. They worry about us a lot and usually mask the worry to support us. But it affects them in huge ways too. Lashing out at them brings distance at a time when both they and you desperately need closeness. You're getting it together and you will feel more normal in the role of loving and supportive husband and father, rather than that of the self-absorbed monster. Get lots of rest and try to engage in some physical activity (wearing your pads, of course) and you will be less likely to regress to last night's behavior. This time will pass very quickly, even though you don't feel that way now.
