What you should know about depression on how it
manipulates private moments.
For more than 40 years, He lived two lives.
Mr. Hyde was a sex addict.
Dr. Jekyll was a loving husband who his wife thought she knew.
Jekyll valued his family,
but depression controlled Hyde.
More and more, he could not hide because he was becoming the porn addicts on his laptop. Hyde went from soft to hardcore gratification.
The objectification of women and men started revealing the Hyde inside Jekyll.
Many women noticed Mr. Hyde’s furtive glances, but his wife saw only Dr. Jekyll.
Becoming fully disgusted with his behavior, Jekyll tried to kill Hyde.
However, Jekyll ended up in a psyche ward, but Hyde kept trying to openingly act out.
So desperately wanting help, Jekyll found a sex therapist and then went to Sex Addicts Anonymous (SAA) meetings.
Taking 16 months, Hyde gradually morphed back to Dr. Jekyll. He confessed to his wife about his battle with depression.
“Lord, I seek the peace that involves becoming an integrated human being” (Booth, 2009, p. 390).
I told my wife about my problem. Though it was difficult to here, she still wanted to understand.
Pornography and masturbation were the effects, but depression was the cause.
