Scared of Sex
Jan 27, 2007
Got a great guy and he knows my past. My father abused me & my Mom. Didn't have sex until 38 and it was a date rape. I was so scared, Just layed they and screamed in my head. No one knew for ages. I'm 58 now. So 20 years have gone by and I'll still scared. He know EVERYTHING. He's gentle, carrying, slow, and has tried to get to loosen up. He can touch me without me swinging at him. I think I love him and don't want to lose him because I'm still SCARED after a long long time. What type of doctor should I see, my primary only laughs..I just don't know what to do..
Response from Dr. Frascino
Your primary care doctor laughs at you? Hmmm . . . have you considered taking a swing at him? I think it may well be justified.
I'd suggest you see a therapist, either a psychiatrist (MD) or psychologist (non-MD). I'd also suggest you get a new, more compassionate, primary care doctor.
