I don't know if this is an appropriate question and if it is, if this is the correct forum on which to ask it. I'm wondering how cfs has affected others sex lives? I've had cfs for 16 years and married 38 years. The last 3 years my symptoms have increased and our sex life has halted. I have absolutely no desire for it and my husband says he is okay, that he feels that asking me for sex would be selfish because of the post exersion fatigue and pain I experience. I'm taking a risk sharing this hoping someone can help me understand if this is unusual or not. Administrators,I apologize if this if it is inappropriate. Please feel free to stop it from posting.
