Trying to get your sexy on with depression can really feel like a third-party has entered your bedroom (and not the fun kind). Depression is loaded with side effects that don’t at all make you feel like a sexy minx. If anything, you feel a little dead down there, and you just can’t get fired up. Then pile onto the guilt, shame and feeling alone, and you have the perfect conditions for a dead bedroom.
Having depression isn’t like having a cold or a sinus infection, it’s not something you’re just going to get over in a couple of days or weeks.
So what’s a gal to do about her sex life getting massacred by depression? Is there low-pressure, low-expectation way to re-engage with sex?
In this episode, we’re kicking off a new series, “sex with…” Today, I’ll talk about all the awful ways depression messes with our inner sexy, and how to deal with them.
