Re: Trying to rekindle sex life with my husband
While our situations are slightly different, I have also been dealing with a husband with a severe brain injury, PTSD, etc. Our once great sex life also went to hell in a hand basket.
This, I've recently discovered is due to resentments he has towards me and he built up walls towards me and we both pulled away from each other.
Just take it easy and try not to jump in with both feet all at once. I tried that and my husband said he just felt pressured and that made him pull away more.
So take it easy...baby steps...follow all the good advice about non-sexual affection that doesn't lead to sex so he doesn't feel pressured and take it from there.
I KNOW what you're going through and I handled it like a bull in a china closet at first, but I've scaled way back and am just taking things slow.
You've made the first step by re-establishing contact, just keep it slow and steady - don't expect major changes quickly - they may take a while.
