I'll chime in also. It can be extremely frustrating to want to have the closeness and intimacy of "making love" but to know that the "sex" act will cause pain - funny how we can separate those things isn't it? Any intense emotion is guaranteed to set my CRPS off into a flare - and I never thought I'd complain about my sweetie being so wonderful physically/intimately but there are just some nights that I just wish he wasn't (and I can't believe I just typed that!) I am appreciating him more and more when I read what you wrote though. I'm wondering though. with full body; if soaking in a spa or a tub with Epsom salts before could help you out? I'm willing to think outside the box and brainstorm with you - but would rather take it to PM if we're going to get much more personal!
Take Care (of Yourself - not the clueless one)
