After years of a long-distance relationship, I fear that when my husband retires he will resent my voluntary work and find his family life less perfect than he expects
People are taking sides and the conversation stops when I walk into a room. I’m wondering if I should leave
I’ve had no luck meeting anyone so far and I am nervous about internet dating
On the run-up to our wedding, things did not go as I had expected. It was almost as if the plans were being made within my family without me being present
My husband has been unemployed for the past six months and I don’t feel as though he’s meeting me halfway
I am grateful to them for their help but I feel like I have no privacy any more
I have been married to a beautiful woman for the past 30 years and I can’t bring myself to tell her
We still have sex but not very often and I don’t have that kind of desire for him that was there at the beginning
He is 30 years old, not a teenager who didn’t know what he was doing
I just pushed the memories down. If they got too much for me, I self-harmed until the physical pain distracted me from the emotional pain
After I was hospitalised in a psychiatric hospital, I did not return to nursing, as I did not like how I was treated as a patient. Now I do nothing all day but watch TV, eat and sleep
He responds with one-word answers, grudgingly obliges if I ask for a kiss, and some mornings leaves for work without a goodbye
Has porn habit affected my ability to maintain an erection?
I don’t feel it’s fair that she treats me like her best friend or counsellor when I don’t feel that close to her
I feel really bad for thinking this, but looking after him as well as working and looking after our child feels like too much
I was 18, really drunk and I couldn’t ejaculate. The girl ignored me afterwards and I was mortified, and I have struggled with sex since
It’s outrageous that these women think they can write me out of the equation while continuing to say hello to my husband and sending their kids to my house
Should I tell my boss about my mental-health issues?
