Viagra and the Veterans Administration


It is true, you can get Viagra from the Veterans Administration (VA). I jumped through a lot of hoops. I am a 100% disabled veteran, I have PTSD from my experiences from the first Gulf War back in '91. So I am in counseling. While in counseling, the topic of my so called sex life came up. My shrink got me on the road to Viagra. Set up my first appointments all up until my appointment with my Andrologist. He asked me, without testing me, or even checking to see what is wrong with Mr. Winky. He directly asked me how much I wanted but told me that I could only have one pill a week. ( wow one pill a week, I was lucky to get laid once a month, my hand was going to be very happy...} So I told him the biggest dose available. He started asking me my health history, i was all set until i mentioned that i had a silent heart attack when i was about 25

DENIED!!!

The denial wasn't because Viagra is dangerous. Actually Viagra is potentially healthy for the heart. It has been shown to reduce enlargement of an unhealthy heart and was even being developed for lowering blood pressure when it was noticed in test recipients to cause erections.

The denial was because I wasn't healthy enough to have sex. Since I was 25, I had lost 100 lbs, I got pretty big after the Army, some people do drugs, some people do booze, me it was food. The heart attack may have been caused by an enlargement to my heart that may have been caused to being exposed to a dangerous chemical. (Gulf War Syndrome anyone?) But being not healthy enough for sex, I work out a couple times a week, love playing racquetball for 3 or 4 hours and already having sex with lot of oral and licking and penetration (I can get an erection, I just can't maintain it) . well anyway I was very disappointed.

I was able to get some Viagra samples from a friend who had a friend with mixed results. Lower doses would work a little bit. Does that were higher, I would get all the side effects to include bluish vision, headaches and a runny nose. If I took a dose before bed, I would wake up with a great erection, which makes me feel that my staying power may have to do with something mental.

I have tried Enzyte and other herbal remedies. The last great erection I had was at a massage parlor in the Poconos a little over a year ago.

so it seems Mr. Winky should go see a shrink.
