I am not sure why I am posting this, other than to get it off my chest. I was diagnosed with severe UC just over a year ago. I underwent an emergency ileostomy and spent the following 2 weeks in intensive care and the next 3 months in hospital. My wife was my absolute rock through the whole thing. I wouldn't have gotten through it without her. I would have just given up.
We have only been intimate once since my surgery, and that was towards the end of last year.
I have tried to talk to her about it, but she gives me no reason for it, other than she doesn't feel like it. I just get a cold response if I try to initiate something. My confidence is at rock bottom, and the lack of sex is eating me up inside. I don't think there is someone else. Am I wrong to be craving some kind of intimacy so much?
As I have said, I have tried asking her what's wrong. I also don't want to force her into something she doesn't want to do. I really don't know what my options are.
Hopefully, I will feel a bit better after getting that off my chest.
