These are the things I am currently dealing with at this junction in my life and my recovery:
- Unable to or unwilling to use old defense mechanism (running away, losing myself in a man, hibernating, quitting, giving up)
- Exposing myself to the world, but feeling overexposed and unprepared and inexperienced.
- No longer able to relate to people in a sexual way (for most of my life this is how I related to people, with the exception of close friends and family).
- Having to maintain dignity during moments of extreme nervousness, insecurity and lack of confidence.
