    Probably the biggest reason my husband and I are such a great match is because we are so emotionally distant from each other. We are both extremely reserved and private people who spend precious little time examining our feelings about things. I run from commitment. I avoid having expectations of any kind placed upon me. I laugh off serious matters and dodge anything too engaging or real. I do feel very real things for other people; love, affection, interest, happiness for them, etc, but I run when others feel things for me. I hate feeling responsible for it.

    I feel like all of that means I should feel more lonely, but I don’t at all. I do, however, wonder if others can relate to what I’m describing. I also wonder if I’ll be a crabby old goat later on in life

    Even that ^^^ feels like telling you too much :)

    I get that. It took me forever to be ready to share serious things here at all

    Uhm, are you me? I feel like you wrote this about me instead of yourself. :grimace:

    I really was beginning to think I was alone in feeling or being like this, so thank you.

    Did we just become minimally intrusive best friends?

    I've always been a confident person in the past. I'm really struggling lately. I hate my new hair, it's better than being bald but I only feel confident when I wear a wig. I hate all the scars on my body, I hate my new breasts, the new ones are not mine. This was NOTHING like getting a boob job. I want my old body back. I've only stopped crying a few weeks ago while I take my showers because I didn't want to look at myself. My boyfriend tells me everyday that he thinks I'm beautiful but it's like I don't believe him. I feel like I'm selfish to feel like this because life has given me a second chance. I try my best to see positive in every situation but some days it's just really hard to do. I'm alive but I have no quality of life, im in pain almost every day. I'm tired.

    I can’t imagine all the changes simultaneously that you’ve had to go through. First and foremost I hope something can be done about the pain.. is the body confidence something that may come with time? Like as the scars fade?

    Boyfriend and I are going to have to sleep separately for a while, while he deals with the PTSD. I have fibromyalgia, and last night was a painful night due to the weather, so I moved a lot. He has hyperarousal from the PTSD, so he jumped awake every time I twitched. (Sigh)

    I think it will not be forever, and it may not be every night, but it still makes me sad.

    I will fess up to the accidental grouchy face. I did not realize I clicked it. It was an accident.

    If I had intentionally clicked it I would have happily told you why I grouchy faced you.

    My bad.
