I am a woman that has been diagnosed with ADD for about 6 years now. I have come a long way and I am being treated with a ritalin like medication that has changed my life. I have been taking the medication for about 2 months now and do not suffer any side effects.
I found this forum while googling sex and ADD and I just can't find any answer to my problem anywhere.
I am married to the love of my life. I truly love my husband. He is fantastic. But I don't want to have sex with him. Not because I don't feel that way about him anymore, not because I am stressed or tired, not because after marriage and daily life we've become more like friends, NOTHING of the normal. I don't want to have sex with him because it's boring. It's boring the same way as school was boring, work was boring, waiting in line is boring, doing anything for more than 2-3 mins (which is my measured attention span) is so boring. And this is breaking my heart. Because I love him, I want to have him close. He's handsome and manly and I feel attracted to him but just the thought of going through a whole sex act sounds as appealing as watching a movie or waiting in line at the bank.
It has to be the ADD or is this something else? I just have this very same feeling that I have with every interest that I have ever had, that sex is so over, sex was fun but I'm into laundry shelves now and am googling every night to find the perfect one for the laundry room.
I can't really discuss this with friends and family, because to most people this is insane. How can sex with someone you love be equal to a laundry shelf? And I seriously want to know the same thing. I miss my husband so much.
Thank you for your time.
