Gradually: It's best to start short and easy and gradually make your sessions longer and more intense, even if you have to start with only walking 5 minutes at a time. Can you do that 2 or 3 times a day? Try working up to 30 minutes a day by a minute or two every couple days. When you get there, try going the same distance at a faster pace.

Urgent problem: Get seen now. This isn't going to get better by "promoting your self-esteem" or "learning to relax." your life's ruined if this continues. Get with someone who can check you for a learning problem, adult attention-deficit disorder, or some illness (and there are dozens) that's keeping your brain from working (even a sleep disorder / parasomnia can ruin this). ...Read more

What to do if i keep getting boners and precumming in my speedo. How can I prevent this?

And even if you do get all excited at a swim meet, nobody's going to care as long as you don't actively try to draw attention to this. ...Read more
