    I know that this is a very personal subject, but I need some words of wisdom from all of you. Have you found that your sex lives with your partners have diminished partly or completely after the diagnosis? Personally, I have lost most of my sex drive from either my meds, my depression, and/or knowing that I will hurt more afterwards. Does anyone have any advice on this subject? I believe that it may be starting to ruin my relationship. Let me know... Thanks!!

    Sex is one of life's most enjoyable activities. I certainly cannot get into some of the positions I could pre-illness, but hey, there's a lot of ways to have sex.

    Now, if I could just get my energy back enough to re-enter the dating scene, perhaps I will again enjoy the touch of a man's body and the sense of intimacy, not to mention that endorphin afterglow. Lordy, is it hot in here or is it just me?

    Anyone know a nice gentleman in his late 50's or 60's in SW Florida?

    Love, Mikie
