Some won't speak out, but I have nothing to lose. I’ve tried everything possible, including visits to gynaecologists and counsellors; fasting and prayers but nothing have worked. Love making for me is not exciting, I hate being touched. It feels like rape every time. I cry inside and sometimes I shed tears openly. My husband, George is not happy about the situation, he loves me, but he would always remind me that a beautiful book secured in an impenetrable glass is of no use in the library. I can't blame him, he has really tried his best
My husband, George is not happy about the situation, he loves me, but he would always remind me that a beautiful book secured in an impenetrable glass is of no use in the library.
George has been quiet since we were told that my attitude toward sex is likely connected to genital mutilation. Mom confirmed that my clitoris was literarily scraped off. Why on earth did my own mum allow anybody to do that to me? Here I’m over 30 years after, living with the fear of losing my man to another woman that has what God had endowed me with, but which humans think I don’t deserve.
My marriage is under threat and I am helpless to save it. I find it difficult to forgive them and I feel like someone should pay dearly for what they did to me. They robbed me of something valuable to me and my husband.
