Dating & Intimacy & Mental Illness

It’s got to be perfect..

 It’s got to be worth it..

As that famous song goes.. 

(Nan or any other of my family, please don’t read this!) 

I don’t want to just lie down and just get laid. I did that when I was battling with my impulsive and intense thoughts. I had shit loads of confidence back when I was impulsive. I was so flirty and so down for anything..

But now, It’s changed. I have no confidence when it comes to sex or even dating if I’m honest. I don’t want to just lie down and get laid.. That just doesn’t give me any excitement anymore. I want to be old fashion and go on a date then I want to be explored. I mean.. oh this is going to sound so so cheesy. I want to be kissed all over and explored..

Dating back when I was having impulsive episodes.. Well, it was dangerous.. My ex boyfriend.. If you can call him that. He mentally destroyed me. We won’t give him that time on my blog. 

But while battling an invisible illness.

Dating is possible while battling any invisible illness but you have some hurdles to jump over while battling an invisible illness. You have the social side then you have the physical side.

Social evenings out for example.. 

My anxiety would have pups if I was to think of anything social. 

Physical side.. 

My leg starts shaking for no reason. 

It’s not my fault. I’m getting better slowly at it. 

But who knows? 

I will continue this post.. This is a little cliff hanger 😉 

Love Shannon Diana xx

You are loved. You are worth the fight. You are more than your illnesses, you can fight this I believe in you. You are flawless. You are fabulous. You aren’t alone. You are amazing and I’m proud of you all.
