    Hey RJ. I am not a prolific poster, but I do have a real profile. This is not a troll. I set up this profile because I have an unusual question.

    I’m 32, totally out and happy. I have a BF and good job and no reason to be depressed. In my teens and early 20’s I fought with depression and suicidal feelings, but that was ages ago.

    When I first started hooking up with guys much of the time I would either have terrible anxiety and not be able to perform, or I would become really depressed and I couldn’t wait to leave. Needless to say I didn’t hook up a whole lot. In my mid 20’s I had a string of BF’s and it got much better, but the depressed feelings would still appear when we had sex.

    So last night my BF put his arm around me in bed to get close and I was overcome with this horrible, bleak feeling. It’s like my brain has somehow connected sex and pleasure with depression, like a scar. Most of the time, I get over it and have sex, but it makes it difficult. I thought I would out grow this, but it doesn’t seem to be happening.

    Has anyone else ever had this feeling? Should I go to a shrink?
