People suffering from chronic illness often also experience problems with their sex life.
And it’s really a shame, because there is a direct correlation between your sexual activity and your overall wellbeing.
There is therefore a good reason to keep your sexual life active.
Sexuality means a lot to our overall wellbeing.
Sexual intimacy can something other interpersonal relationships cannot. Sex is a source of fun and games. But the most important thing about sex is not the actual intercourse, but rather the experience of intimacy, closeness, familiarity, tenderness and warmth.
No sex life = worsening of disease
According to the doctors, there are strong indications that chronic diseases becomes even worse in those patients whose sexual life is at a standstill.
Sexuality is important to prioritize when you are chronically ill. If you have sexual problems, it may lead to a vicious cycle of misunderstanding, frustration, lack of intimacy, poor communication with your partner, relationship problems and poorer quality of life, which ultimately may worsen your illness.
Too many chronically ill people experience intimacy problems that really destroys their happiness and wellbeing.
Have sex and take control of your disease
Psychologist specializing in psychological counseling says that it is all about taking control of the illness.
The worst thing you can do is to pull away from the world, your partner, your interests, even though it may be what you most want. But understand that when you have sex, you are using a part of your healthy side, and thereby removing yourself from your illness. You take control.
To have sex in spite of the fact that your eczema is visible, or that your asthma may be triggered, is to recognize yourself as a whole person, so they say: there is a part of me that is still healthy.
