I and the woman with whom I'm with get along fairly well, but we've become like roommates and friends. She lost much of her sex drive and I have lost my attraction for her. I chose to leave/separate from her once but came back after I started grad school (and she seemed to have changed, but the changes I saw only lasted a short time, then some troubling things reverted back to the way they were before).
It was difficult for me to categorize this issue, because I feel it's a relationship issue, but when it comes right down to it, it's primarily about sex (or the lack of it in our relationship). There's no passion, and I feel like I need that somehow. And, yet, I wonder, do some people--people with a time & energy-consuming health problem like me--just learn to live without it?
Is that due to your illness?
Or because the relationship has fallen apart?
There are challenges when cHronically ill people enter into relationships, but after three times, (including the dating and dealing with health concerns during this time) one would hope that the illness issues would be secondary to real issues.
What do you attribute the diminishment of sex drive for both of you?
