I really appreciate the suggestions and I look forward to trying all of the tips. I have but one additional problem. My husband was just diagnosed with Hepatitis B. Our doctor said that I would need to be tested but, he ( our Dr ) isn't aware that my husband and myself have had no intimacy for over eight months. But, this illness that has fallen to husband has only served to drive him further away from myself.. So, now I must convince my husband that I am not worried about contracting the disease.View Thread
I suffer from FM as well as degenerative disk disease. My husband has told me the reason we lack intimacy is he does not want to hurt me. I have numerous times told him that I really want to at least try even if there is some chance it could be painful. But, for the past year we live like roommates. I just don't know how to get him 're-interested in what is missing from our lives. I am and have been wanting that closeness. I am open to any suggestions. Thank you, D.D in TexasView Thread
