My problems seemed to start when i begun to masturbate at 13 .Can masturbation affect the brain chemicals wich are related to depresion and anxiety?During the climax i know the brain releases some chemicals.Is it any connection between them?I usually get very depressed after masturbation
There is not any brain disturbance that comes from masturbation...you may feel guilty about what you are doing because you have not completely accepted and owned your physical body, but masturbation is definetly not a cause of depression.
Perhaps lack of acceptance is due to your abuse history?
Perhaps this has been my problem too. I'm not talking about masturbating but just generally. I think there have been certain events that have made me more aware of my physical self. Being catheterized in hospital. That definitely made me more aware of my own sexuality. Wearing the odd skirt vs being a tomboy all the time.
Being physically sick has challenged me too forcing me to take better care of myself and to respect my body. It has limits to the amount of abuse it can take too.
Acceptance and ownership of ones body opens up so many more questions. Many of which our body is defending against in the first place. I was told I use my body as a defense. Meaning I don't like people touching me or in my physical space.
Do children reject their bodies because of what others do to it?
