If you are living with a long-term illness like heart disease, diabetes, cancer, or arthritis, your sex life may not be what it used to. Issues like pain, exhaustion, stiffness, and depression are all common with chronic disease and not very conducive to a healthy sex life. It’s not surprising that many people with these diseases lose interest and enjoyment in sex.
Fortunately, you can change this. Even if you have a chronic disease, if your sexuality and intimacy are important for you and your partner, you can have a satisfying sex life again.
