So, I said before that my PTSD problems are getting worse. My doctors think it’s just a reaction to all the stress in my life, and it will resolve on its own. But in the meantime, I’m having a problem.
I am finding it almost impossible to allow Mr. Star to touch me in any kind of sexual way. We have always had a very healthy sex life, but since late August, I’ve been really struggling. We have had sex maybe five times since then, which is practically nothing for us. He is really cool about it, and doesn’t pressure me at all. But I still feel bad about it. Does anyone have any tips for tolerating physical intimacy better? My usual tricks don’t seem to be working, and when I try to just push through the discomfort, I think I make it even worse. I can still touch him with no problem, so that’s something at least, but I just really miss enjoyable sex.
I did join a women’s trauma support group, but that doesn’t start until the 25th, and I’d like to be more proactive than that.
