Does Anyone's Relationship Get Affected With Low Sex Drive And Intolerance Of Being Touched

Sweetheart I know that feeling well I've been suffering with FIBROMIAGIA and chronic fatigue syndrome pain since I was young I mean a long time I didn't feel like being touched 💔 at all with the pain I still don't feel like it. Now it's normal for most women infact all the women I've known feel the same way about sex hugging and being affectionate with the man we love ❤ so very much. You are his wife sounds like a very good wife and the woman he loves ❤ spend your time resting and getting ready for him when he gets home he needs love and care from his wife that he doesn't want from nobody else. I've gone through this so many times as my husband of the last thirty six years 💔 and I'm much older 11 years than him and that's why I know what this man needs. Real love is hard to come by its once in a lifetime but talk to him and let him know how much you love him and that if you could do better you would but don't ever let him feel like he's not loved or desired. Just get close to him and lay your head down on his shoulders and caress his hands and lay close to him you don't know how much better it'll make you feel having him right there besides you. Sending you so much love ❤ you make this love work ❤ you can do it I've got that much faith in you that you will still make him a happy man. Josephine Phillips.

Gentle gentle hugs Sam0411. I know exactly what you are talking about. I am 36 and hubby and I will be married 17 years this April. He has always supported me and helped with my issues when I needed him. I feel like I don’t deserve him a lot, but he remains by my side. He has a higher than usual sex drive than me at our ages right now. Mine has dwindled as has my self confidence. I have gained weight and hate doing my hair lol.
But he remains loving and caring. Some times we just get lucky and find the right guy who will support and love us no matter what and that is something incredible.

When I am in pain I do not like being touched and I have kids one is a teen 15 year old girl and a toddler 4 year old girl and the toddler likes to constantly be on top of me. Hubby seems to be considerate of my non-sex drive, but I do make sure to give him some lovin at least once or twice a week even if i am in pain. I find that once it gets going, I enjoy it and it does take my mind off of my pain. Our endorphins kick in and suppresses the pain signals or at least it does for me.

Take it easy, know you are not alone and continue to work on trying to find the goodness in everything including YOU! I don’t care for therapy because I seem to have bad luck with the ones I get as they are not very intelligent LOL, but maybe that would be something to look into? How ironic I would suggest that after saying I don’t like it LOL. Oh man…I need more coffee.

Gentle Hugs, lots of love and YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!! I get it. :)

Join the club on not being able to be touched and loss of sex drive…..I’m to point I don’t know why hubby is with me…….lately my pain has been unbearable and I isolate. But our communication is great….keep that in mind of communication is vital….gentle hugs.
