Hi guys, you don't know me but I know you lol! I've lurked on this board for a couple years and I've found some tremendous help and reassurance on here.
Here's my story in a nutshell:
DH and I have been married for nearly 5 years. We both started out fairly HL (We were 19 when we got married so that couldn't have hurt :). After I had our son 3 1/2 years ago, my libido went way down. I think it was a combination of stress, muddled hormones, and feeling unnatractive due to weight gain. DH assured me I was still beautiful to him, but it's hard to feel sexy when you are at a less than ideal weight.
Anyhow, we've had ups and downs, sexually. I know I hurt DH's feelings a lot, because he felt I was not attracted to him. My biggest obstacle seemed/seems to be getting in the mood. Once there I'd be ok :)
I started branching out to other IV boards and stumbled on the Fantasies board, and realized that reading some of those steamy stories gets me excited enough that I het over whatever hesitation I had and am ready to go with DH :)
I have since found some other sites that have steamy stories, and those help too. Now, I'm getting back to where I used to be before I had the baby, and can come up with the fantasy stories on my own. I guess all I needed was a little jump start!
Anyway, I wanted to share in case this would help someone else who has trouble getting the engine to turn over :)
best of luck to you all!
