My PTSD has given me the terrible curse of hypersexuality. Anything even remotely related to my trauma or even menial things makes me aroused,

I'm always aroused, things that shouldn't arouse me do, and I feel so guilty being with a man who is very...non-sexual. He's not asexual by any means but his sex drive is very low compared to mine, I feel like I burden him.

Many people tell me I'm too aggressive or open about my sexuality, I feel like I burden everyone around me, anyone else dealing with this I guess...under-spoken about side of sexual trauma? 😥

I guess mine is the right opposite, due to my sexual trauma I have a very low sexual desire. It's different for everyone, I'm sure your partner will understand.

Yep! My fiance is on that side of the spectrum, so we're always trying to work with each other...its just that heavy burdensome feeling I get when my desire sometimes feels I guess "too much"
