I am a 51 yo female who was stricken by Guillian-Barre Syndrome 1 and a half years ago. My symptoms at this time are significant pain in my pelvis, low back, and legs that I take methadone 25mg a day and oxyIR 60mg a day (These meds don't seem to have an effect on much except my pain and slow bowels), moderate weakness in my legs, and what seems to be a complete inability to reach orgasm.
I must admit also that with the huge changes this has wrought in my life (I am still unable to work as an ICU nurse, which I did
for 17 yrs) my depression has become significant over the past 4 to 6 months. For this a take Effexor 375mg (divided) daily with minimal effect, although I hate to think what my crying jags would look like if I weren't taken it.
I live in Key West and am seeing a phychiatrist, having had only one appt so far, but he seemed to glaze over when I mentioned my problem with orgasm and did not address the statement at all.
So my question is this: How can I get treatment in this secluded area? Are there therapists available through skype perhaps, or can you suggest a book that my husband and I can work through? Nothing I/we have tried has worked i.e.; massage, masterbation, toys, no toys, all about me with return stimulation discouraged, water masterbation, ect.
Thanks in advance for your thoughtful reply.
