I've always been open with my ED story, both online and in real life. People say I should be ashamed or feel like "less than a man" because of it, and I know a lot of guys do feel that way. But I don't. It's just part of me, part of my diabetes. If someone suffered from kidney failure no one would say that they should be ashamed or feel like less than a person.
I hope that by being open with my story it will help other men. Maybe they will be encouraged, maybe they had be reluctant to try injections but perhaps my story will give them the courage to try them.
