I have never written a message on a message board so forgive me if I sound silly. I am 41 years old, happily married with two young children. I love my husband very much but I have no desire for sex. I wish so much that we didn't have to have sex. If I thought it wouldn't hurt my marriage I would be thrilled never to have sex again. My husband, sick of being rejected, has stopped asking for it all together. I know this isn't what he wants but he doesn't know what else to do anymore.
I've read Dr. Phil's advice about automatic thoughts and how this problem can be resolved in weeks but I just don't buy it. I don't know of any sexual abuse in my past but I do know that my mother often rejected my father. Can that be where my attitude is coming from?
I'm so sick of this being an issue/problem with my husband and me. Can anyone offer any advice?
