Sex, Faith, Divorce...Anyone Relate?

Posted by sassyfrancesca on July 15, 2008, at 10:28:04

Not sure if this belongs here, or if it will be diverted to another area, but it IS about a faith issue.

Divorced after 31 years of abuse. Church voted me out of membership (18 month nightmare as to what happened): positive came from the spiritual abuse (it has been a phenomenon; Over 14,400 hits.

Elie Wiesel (survivor of Auschwitz) has written to me regarding my poetry; I am humbled and honored.

I have been alone now (excruciating) for 3 years and have been celibate....because of my faith...and to be honest perhaps because I haven't fallen in love with anyone.

I pray every day and night for God to bring me a man of integrity, kindness, etc......

I've managed to accomplish so much as an overcomer and wounded-healer...I am the moderator of an abused survivor's group, written my memoir, won a scholarshp and went back to school (age 61)...etc., etc.....what is missing is love....and sex......I am a very passionate, touch-feely person and to not be in a relationship and have someone to share life's joys and burdens is more than I can bear.

I could write a book on this subject, but will stop story was published:, entitled; The Transcendent Child on Overcoming Verbal and Spiritual Abuse.

Anyone relate?

Smiles, Sassy

P.S. I am wondering how long I can hang on and not have sex; "deprivation breeds desire."
