anorgasmia....I did not know there was such a word, but I experienced that for two years! I am currently taking no anti-depressant and no mood stabilizers while I change doctors. It is grinding and painful, up and down, I am surviving but glad to have had a respite from 'anorgasmia', tho' I may have to accept it back into my life soon, as my new doc will probably want me on meds....sigh!! I don't want to belittle anyone. I am a single Mom raising a wildly spirited child. I was devastated by the diagnosis, and even more so in discovering that I too am resistant to treatment. There is no shame in being dependent on the "system" for support. Our illnnesses, collectively, are disabling and dibilitating
We must take help where we can get it. I am determined to live through my entire natural life being "bipolar type one and a half, rapid cycling', sex or no sex. I wish I had some clues for you, Emma.
