He mentioned tonight as we were walking home from the movies that he's afraid that I'm just not sexually attracted to him...and I had to admit, that when he hasn't showered for a few days (we've already talked about his hygiene) that sex is DEFINITELY the furthest thing from my mind. But not sexually attracted to him at all? It got me thinking, and worried. He's disabled, and I do take care of him 99% of the time (by disabled I mean that he was born with CP, and it really only effects his ability to walk...nothing else), so perhaps our dynamic has changed?? I'm not sure, and furthermore, I'm not sure how to restore it if that IS the case. We're completely comfortable with each other's bodies, so I thought that that would only increase the level of intimacy, and even help me out... but it doesn't look like that's been the case.
I know this seems like a lot, and thanks for baring with me (especially if you read all of that!). Anyone have any advice on how to start helping us become closer? It would devastate me to lose him, and while I know he's not just going to walk away from 4.5 years with me, he's started to give up on ever having a sex life, and that's so depressing for me that I can hardly bare it....HELP!!
