Happy As? #asexual #Addiction
Im Not Sur
I've faced confusion over my sexuality most my life. First I thought I was straight, then when I couldn't form relationships I presumed I was gay, as there was some sexual attraction there, but that didn't work out. I then identified as bisexual, but none of this was really me.
More recently I realised part of the problem is that I don't enjoy or desire sex. When I was growing up asexuality was not discussed, but as it became more openly discussed I feel this is me.
What I'm not sure about is whether autism is the reason I'm Asexual, as I'm not comfortable being close to people and am very awkward when trying to form relationships. Or whether my autism is irrelevant and not linked to my lack of sexual desire.

I’ve discovered last week that I’m Asexual. Doing research about it, I find the terms panromantic, aromantic, etc. I’m struggling to figure out where I fall in the romantic part, because as silly as it sounds, as a 42 yr old woman, I don’t know how to define romantic. The dictionary wasn’t helpful. What does romantic mean with respect to this?
Where to start?! I started with a new care coordinator just before Christmas, as my previous CPN had been promoted. (This will have made it 3 CCO’s in less than a YEAR.....) I have, however, physically, only seen her* meaning new CPN three times. The first time was at handover between CPN’s and myself and the second was just before Christmas and the last time was New Year’s Eve. I had a remote Care Plan Review with her and my psychiatrist on 4th Jan (the same day our Prime Minister put us on a national lockdown.)
I live on my own but do have my brother, sister-in-law and 3 nieces as my “support bubble” but currently seeing nobody face to face....
I’m unsure if it’s the fact my support has changed or been withdrawn *AGAIN*? I attend a recovery group twice weekly but they’ve stopped at present and am awaiting for the Therapeutic Community to restart which has been put on hold since March 2020 because of the obvious social distancing issues.
This lockdown seems so much more harder to cope with and I feel lonelier than ever.
Everything seems to be going round my head in a big messy fast paced bleurgh and just struggling to reach out I guess as “everyone’s in the same boat”
I missed my first class because I was so tired and decided to sleep instead (stupid stupid stupid)
I missed my bus to get keys from my friend to watch her cat and was 30 minutes later as a result
as a result of being 30 minutes late to my friends place, I missed chemistry class
my car is currently in the shop and I feel trapped and down.
doesn’t help that it’s valinetines day and I’m an #asexual who is super super single and has been lonely and down for years.
I’m just about to cry because of this. my mind feels like a jumbled mess of thoughts and worries and things I have to do. they are unorganized and all over the place and make me feel like I can’t do anything right.
I haven’t felt this down in years.
