I know most people with fibromyalgia say that it hurts them even to get a hug from someone; well get hugged to tightly or to be touched most of the times. I too get sore to the touch, but I am also a person who loves and enjoys affection.
Just because I have a chronic illness, I still need love and the love needs to be passionate.
A lack of affection leaves me feeling worst than I already do on a normal basis. Sometimes just kissing is enough, my lips don’t hurt all the time. And yes my lips become sore, because I bite off the skin on them and it makes them tender.
Everyone wants affection from there spouse or partner, it’s only natural to want to be close.
It’s frustrating when I hurt so much that I feel my husband rather not even try and touch me, but when I’m in the mood he is not. At the same time he says he waits for me to want it, but yet pushes me away when I do.
I’m thankful and grateful for having someone in my life, but it’s not easy trying to be on the same page; when having fibromyalgia, I don’t even think we reading from the same book; let alone being on the same page.
Everyone needs love; but everyone doesn’t show there love in the same ways.
CHRONIC ILLNESS OR NOT WE STILL WANT AND NEED AFFECTION. AT LEAST I DO!
