Hi Bettyslocombe,
So glad that you posted on the forum, speaking about navigating vaginismus treatment and working on your relationship. You are going to have ups and downs, times that you feel you are exhausted and times where you feel more equipped and energized. Be kind to yourself, and all you need to know is that it’s a process and slow progress is progress. You will get there with all the feelings that come with it. This is a challenging condition both physically and emotionally – we know this. It’s important to also remind yourself that this is one part of your life and note the things in your life that are not fraught (I’m sure you will be able to list many!). Use your team and know that the forum is here for support as well.
Keep us posted,
Helen
