Hi @bettyslocombe!

Thank you for sharing your story with us. I think that every vaginismus patient can relate with this. When my treatment was going on, I was a student doing some research work. In those 6 months, I could not at all concentrate on my studies. I was thinking about my condition and the treatment all the time. Sometimes I wanted to give up especially after setbacks but with the motivation from this group, I carried on and I am glad that I didn’t give up. When I was finally able to have intercourse, I felt a huge weight of shame, guilt, and inability to do something off my shoulders. I realized how stressed and depressed I was because of this condition. One day you will also be able to throw this weight of stress and depression from your shoulders. Best of luck! Do share with us any updates:)
