Hi Allie – thanks so much for sharing how you’ve been feeling all this time. I think you have so articulately shared the reasoning behind why so many of us wait a long time to seek treatment for something we desperately want to cure. The thought of really, REALLY trying to seek treatment and still failing is terrifying – in a way it’s more comforting to believe that options still exist that we just haven’t sought out yet. But this is our brains tricking us into staying unhappy. For one thing, seeking treatment will incur results for just about everyone that are better than the situation of being in immense pain, and can often help you with the emotions of vaginismus like shame, guilt, embarrassment, self-loathing, and struggling to connect intimately with our partners. I am so glad I’m now able to have pain-free intercourse, nut perhaps the biggest gain has been that I have rid myself of the emotional burden that not being able to feel like a “normal woman” caused on my relationships. I am so proud that you recognize that what you stand to gain can be so much greater than your fear. Please let us know how it goes! I’m pulling for you!
