Re: Asexuality and sexual trauma

The bit about emotional closeness is definitely accurate. I have a lot of trouble being honest about my feelings with both myself and others. However I don't think that negates my lack of interest in sex with a partner - imagining myself having sex usual results in boredom or mild discomfort which i...

Re: Struggling with worthlessness

Hi Jon, Thank you. It's good to remember that I'm not alone even if it sucks that we are all card carrying members of the chronic pain club. Focusing on the little wins is a good idea - thanks. Today I managed to repot some of my plants and they look great. I'm content right now and I'll try to focu...

Re: My Dog & I Have A Confusing Relationship

That's great!
I recently got some gerbils and I've been doing the same. They are very comforting.

Re: *Trigger warning* why ask for help???

Hi Square, That sounds rough. I hope you are doing at least a little better at the moment. You should absolutely be able to get help when you are feeling like that. From the title, it seems like you didn't feel supported by your therapist in that moment. The best thing to do would be to tell them th...

Struggling with worthlessness

Hi, I have an unpredictable chronic health condition which means that some days I can't sit up or open my eyes, but on others I am reasonably ok as long as I can manage my pain and don't move around too much. Because I can't predict when an episode will happen it is impossible for me to hold a norma...

Asexuality and sexual trauma

Hi people. Disclaimer to start. I 100% believe that being asexual does not mean that you have had to have some horrible sexual experiences in the past and it has 'put you off sex' or whatever nonsense some people claim. That being said, I identify as asexual (and possible aromantic though I'm still ...

Re: Tell Me Something About You

Hi all, I'm 26 and am struggling with depression again after my diagnosis of chronic migraines which mean I am constantly in pain and have difficulty with pretty much everything. I also have some issues with sexual trauma and self harm. This has been going on for years and I only recently started re...

Re: My Dog & I Have A Confusing Relationship

Hi, It sounds like you love your dog a lot and I'm sure they love you equally in return. As someone else mentioned it sounds like your dog is with you a lot of the time at home and is used to being calm and peaceful around you. She reacts excitedly to people coming home because for her that is one o...
