No interest in sex because I’m depressed
I’ve been feeling really low recently, more than I have for months. I feel guilty about it because I’m currently living with my boyfriend while there are lockdowns etc, and for the first time ever my low mood is causing me to have no interest or enjoyment in sex. Previously when we didn’t live together, when I got to see him it would lift my mood and I’d be able to have and enjoy sex. Now that we’re together all the time and my mood isn’t so affected by seeing him, I’m not at all interested in sex and the most recent time we did it I didn’t get much enjoyment out of it. I’m on a waiting list for CBT treatment with Italk, but I have no idea when I’ll get it. I try to look after myself and do meditation and yoga, but my mood is still very low. I don’t know how to make it better, and I feel guilty that I’m not having sex with my boyfriend. I still love him and I’m glad that I’m with him, but I feel like I should be happy and guilty that I’m not.
