    Valentine's Day is coming

    and it's a bitter sweet thing for me. It's a day for romance and love - you would think since I'm married it would be a given... I wish that were true. I miss romance. I miss the sweet words, the connection, the love in his energy and touch... Everything. I'm such a big...

    Such a lonely situation,

    it did not drop-out of the sky to crush my spirit. No- stealthily, gradually, and with great skill, it crept-in through an unnoticed entrance. Despite my best efforts (and I am not easily thwarted), it seems to have currently triumphed with an unusually tight grip. Not what I...

    This is exactly how I feel these days.

    We are just room mates that share the same house and even the bed. But there is no kissing or cuddling or anything more exciting like having sex. Been over three years now. :(

    It's so hard to believe how many of us live in

    this situation. Nobody understands unless you live it. Things get so complicated when you've spent most of your life building a career and a life. It's not just easy to walk away and lose everything you have worked so hard to build.

    I have realised this is true

    People seem to think

    that it's just not having sex that makes the marriage not work. But, it's so much more than that! My husband and I are still like best friends. But, that's pretty much all. Yes, it is awesome we are still close as friends...but, a marriage needs more! Yes, we are still intimate...

    I've never posted before

    but here goes...... lately my partner of three years (that I have a young child with) has become very.... distant. A few months ago I was having a lot of health problems, finally to be diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, and since beginning treatment I feel like my old self...

    This isn't how I pictured my life with my

    spouse. I thought we'd be best friends, share everything, laugh a lot, pick each other up in dark times. Instead we never talk. We go whole days without speaking. Typically if he speaks its to snap or be rude. We don't share a bed we literally live like roommates but when i...
