Post-coital dysphoria (PCD) — also known as postcoital tristesse (PCT) — is a condition that can cause feelings of sadness, agitation, and crying after intercourse. It can also cause feelings of anxiety. PCD can last anywhere from 5 minutes to 2 hours, and it can happen with or without orgasm.
Am I the only one who feels like I have this? I wouldn't be shocked if I was diagnosed with a crap ton of things that I've gained over the last year. A lot has happened. And, I live with constant stress and I have anxiety/depression.
Does anybody else ever get "scared" that it's gonna slip out and go into your ass? Because, that's a constant thought when it gets slippery or in certain positions.
My body isn't as flexible as it once was, and I feel like I can't fully enjoy sex anymore because of that, and I'm always in some sort of pain. May be my knees, elbows, hips, thighs, wrists or fingers. There's always something stopping me from fully enjoying it. And, even when I feel I've enjoyed it, I'm sad at the end. I don't feel fully satisfied because there is a barrier in the way of that. Which, that would be pain.
It's so hard to explain, I don't even know what's going on in my head. I'm trying to understand it the best that I can without having to talk to a "professional" about these things because it is embarrassing.
I used to be so into sex and that's all I wanted, and the past few months, it's been really rough on me. At least the last six months. I can't seem to figure out how to fix things.
Maybe it's not me. Maybe it is. Maybe it's both of us. I really don't know.
I don't even talk to my husband about how I'm feeling afterwards because I'm emotional and if I don't understand why I feel the way I do, how will someone else? It's a difficult topic to talk about, and I'm sorry that I close you off and go into quiet depressive mode. I'm trying to figure it all out, by myself. Having a moment to think afterwards and pinpoint feelings is hard, and even harder when you have someone asking you questions.
"Was it too much?", he asked. I said, "No." And that was that. Even if it may have been, how can I tell him? I can't. This is so difficult and so embarrassing coming from someone who used to be so sexual and desired, to maybe once a week to every other week, getting dick.
I'm sorry. I don't like myself. I don't understand my feelings. And, I hope you can accept me for my emotional side, even when there's not a pinpointed reason for it.
Today is Sunday 14th 2021 and I am excited to say that my world is opening up.
I am joking, I have been 2 months applying to work as a medical assistant and everyone moves on to other candidates because I don't have the experience, well am sorry I just got out of college and never worked in an office before.
So I decided to go back to college to study patient care technician that degree will allow me to work in hospitals, dialysis centers, nursing homes, emergency department and intensive care departments.
Medical assistant only allows you to work in offices except if you are lucky and you may work in a hospital desk with paperwork but that's it.
My advise study as much as you can in your field and then work.
Several friends sent me this weekend's news item about "Nimblewill Nomad", the 83-year-old hiker who has become the oldest person to complete the Appalachian Trail. Outside of the trail community, Nimblewill is M.J. Eberhart of Flagg Mountain, Alabama. It made me wonder about who the oldest senior citizen is to have completed the PCT.
A little research revealed that person to be Al 'Al' Learned, who completed the trail in 2018 (and also in 2003) at the age of 81 years and 58 days.
According to Al's Facebook page he has retired from long distance hiking, but spent 2019 supporting his son, "Where's Waldo" on his Continental Divide Trail thru attempt. Al started the trail with Waldo, hiked from each trailhead to meet or depart from Waldo and occasionally spent the night on the trail with Waldo.

Al's hiking resume is quite amazing and includes the following (in addition to his two PCT hikes). Based upon his dates, Al did some serious high mileage.
2005: Thru-hiked 2,663 mile Continental Divide National Scenic Trail southbound 6/11 - 10/4
2007: Thru-hiked 2,174 mile Appalachian National Scenic Trail southbound at 70 years of age, 8/7 - 11/3
2010: Summited 20,230 foot Mt McKinley a couple months before he turned 73 on 5/21.
2011: Thru-hiked 1,193 mile Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail westbound 7/9 - 9/27
2012: Thru-hiked 800 mile Arizona National Scenic Trail northbound 4/7 - 5/11
2013: Thru-hiked 4,425 mile North Country National Scenic Trail eastbound with 34 days off trail recovering from a tick disease from 4/19 - 11/12
2015: Thru-hiked 1,107 mile Florida National Scenic Trail northbound 1/9 - 2/22
2015: Thru-hiked 454 mile Natchez Trace National Scenic Trail northbound 3/31 - 4/14
2015: Thru-hiked 1,094 mile Ice Age National Scenic Trail eastbound 8/1 - 9/7
2016: Thru-hiked 887 mile Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail northbound 7/31 - 8/29
2016: Thru-hiked the 235 mile New England National Scenic Trail northbound 8/31 -9/10
Al turned 68 in 2005 which is my current age . . . and, at that time he was just getting started.
