dear Colee, you ARE a brave lady and one I am grateful for bringing this up! I have wondered for a while how to broach this subject as I have been dysfunctional for several years now due to the MS. It's one of the most subtle but devastating symptoms that snuck up on me without any warning but since happening, has been a wall of issues between me and hubby. He simply doesn't believe it's related. No matter how I tell him.
And all the fears you expressed have been mine too...because that is his pattern. No amount of talking has solved anything. Mind you he isn't neglected by any means... but for me my sensations are nil. I've explained to my neuro it's like everything else below my waist, not much works right...
I don't have hormone issues either as I lost ALL of them at age 34 due to precancerous situation so that both ovaries and the uterus had to go at once. But from then til age 50 I was a healthy happy woman... then poof! The switch turned off... and man, I hate it for hubby and me!
I've even tried Viagra and yeah, it works the but the aftereffect is horrendous for me, it wastes me with vertigo and nausea that makes it worthless to have to endure just for a few minutes of maybe? Sorry, not to minimize it but with everything else in my body... it's a back seat issue anymore... so Colee, thanks for broaching the subject. Your bravery was much appreciated!
