Empty Feeling

To all the women posting here:

Have these thoughts crossed your mind?

I want to eradicate this empty feeling I have been carrying around.  I have alowed myself to be tortured long enough.  The person I love and care for no longer wants to share themselves, is it me? I have a craving inside of me that I cannot satisfy by myself. 

As a man, these are my thoughts.  I have lived with them for many years.  

The question I have that I cannot answer is - What am I prepared to do about it?

You are the master of your own thoughts and the captain of your own life. Don't let anyone to take the driver's seat. Follow your heart then consult your mind. It's hard to be caught in between.

The solution is pray to the saints. The saints on their merits will ask anything from Jesus who is God on your behalf. They never refuse a client. Go to novenas on the web. pick a saint. say that prayer for nine days for a very very specific question or what you need. it takes two minutes a day and by the ninth day you will know. It works every time. Try it. Man will fail you. God never will. He is not capable of decieving us. Maybe God allows us to bang our heads untill we are willing to say okay I give up I will let you drive this car you know all things. Try it.

Male or female in a sexless marriage we all feel that emptiness - the hollowness of life within the marriage. The sadness of the death of intimacy. I understand completely.

The only two things keeping me from being long gone are: financial independence and a teen to finish raising.<br />

I was the major wage earner in the family until fibromyalgia made me stop practicing law. I was already looking for a way out when I got too sick to work.<br />
<br />
I have made major lifestyle changes and am recovering my stamina. I still have to consider my son. My husband is also a toxic narcissist, and it would be difficult for my son to spend compulsory time with him (read: shared parenting or visitation).<br />

I had been just biting the bullet and doing my duty, but this past winter I woke up to the violence of my own needs.<br />
<br />
All I can do is strive toward achieving my freedom---and pant like a caged animal. <br />

I SO need out of this ******* prison.

The emotions you express affect both genders alike. Anger, loneliness, rejection - they're the same for us all. The final question for us all is, What are we prepared to do about it? Even if we know what we have to do, are we bold enough to do it? There is no gender specificity here!

You are a dude......................not a chick in a sexless marriage.
