Maybe this is a problem all new parents face. Especially new moms who spend every waking moment taking care of a baby or scrambling to find work. Or maybe it’s just me…I don’t know. But I’m not remotely interested in sex these days.
I feel horribly guilty about it, though R has not complained (much). I try to look after him in other ways – I make sure he gets plenty of time to do the things he wants, I buy him little gifts when I’m at the store, I try to find activities the three of us can do together, I tell him often that I love him. But none of that takes the place of physical closeness, and I know that.
I don’t know what is wrong with me. Sure, I’m tired, I’m stressed, and I’ve got a zillion things to do, but none of that used to interfere with my sex drive. I hope it’s a resolvable issue, though, because I don’t want this to ruin our relationship.
