so some self knowledge..
Ginkgo biloba, a traditional aphrodisiac originally from China, was found to be 84% effective in treating antidepressant-induced sexual dysfunction.
what do you think? may help with antipsicothic induced sexual dysfunction too?

I think you "over associate". Associative horizon is an asset but it can cause a loss of focus in logic.
A lot of people I meet with serious mental health struggles tend to not be able to apply logic. Trust me, I have met many.
To apply logic, the thoughts need to fo!low in logical steps. Example:
(1) What is my goal and aim?
(2) Can I succeed in that objective?
(3) What steps might help in this?
Logic is vital to management of mental health. It is the opposite of thoughts that wander from A to Z, creating ideas but not solving each problem.
The same applies to normally, functional people.

For example, my best friend suffered some psychosis and severe dysmorphia. He was convinced women hated him, due to his nose. He spent a large amount of money on surgery. Myself and his psychiatrist disagreed with his decision.
What was the simple logic?
The logic was women don't always care about looks. My friend's problem was to do with very poor social skills. He had lost the ability to view the whole problem rationally. His other hindrance was he wasn't accepting himself as a decent person (which he was).
Most of his conversation to me was about his nose. He was on meds a lot of the time.

My particular view is that people who suffer neurotic conditions often need to develop the analytical, logical aspect of thinking.
In your case, try to decide what your hope for yourself is. A good suggestion is, peace of mind, calmness, self acceptance, self-belief. Most people just want to feel content. Many people don't feel content. Very many people can't escape the stress that causes them to struggle and feel miserable. More often, they break down due to pressure trying to live to please and satisfy the expectations of others.
You can be yourself and accept yourself, the good and the bad.

That's fine. You stated your goal. It's the same as most of us. We all hope for peace of mind.
Being "low profile" isn't a bad quality. It may become a strength. As to being "weak" that may well not be true. You already showed the courage to discuss yourself here with honesty and humility.
Remember each and every one of us here has an "image" of who we are. Yet others may see us differently to how we see ourselves. Then, on top of that, who we actually are in fact may be something different altogether.
