Helping Fellow Members

Post by JellyMan »

If anyone is feeling down, maybe anxious or depressed and just want a chat just PM me. Can be about anything (not necessarily rainwear). I am not a trained councillor, but I have suffered from depression, and would be happy to chat with anyone who needs to.

Sometimes life can be tough, and if you have no one to chat to, it makes it much harder. Especially (but no only) in regard to our sexual desires; even if you have a partner lots of us cannot be totally honest about our needs. My wife sees my like as purely sexual, but sometimes if I am feeling anxious about something I’d just like to pop on a mac, but she wouldn’t understand that idea. So although I am not alone, life is far from simple or fulfilling at times. I fine talking helps a lot,

Great shout. Ive suffered from mild bouts of depression for years, often bringing on anxiety attacks and increasing my blood pressure, which I am on medication for. My wife has finally realised that by wrapping me up in my favourite mack(s) and leaving me to kind of meditate, I can calm down and relax quite quickly. Blood pressure is normal and 30 minutes later I am a much better, much nicer person for it. I am lucky, but there are many out there, some on their own, who are not. Having a friendly ear can be so helpful. Good on you.

On a slightly different tact, strangely, laying on my bed, being wrapped and locked into my macks, makes my tinnitus go away! Weird! Perhaps I should be left that way permanently! Its been suggested. I got a clump!

I am a rational person and always take other people’s feelings in to account whatever I do. But sometimes, if I am very stressed, I literally have wear plastic when naked as the only way to calm down. But if my wife is asleep I will always put her need first and lie awake desperate for a mac but unable to put one on for fear of disturbing my wife. Like many people here I struggle with my desires, most of the time I feel incredibly guilty after sex in rainwear, and can’t wait to get the raincoat off. So I suspect that there must be other members struggling.

I have struggled greatly the last 18 months and when I indulge in rainwear or latex, I do feel guilty about it

Same here, i have suffered from bouts of gender dysphoria (am transgender) before i came out and it nearly finished me off. So know how these things can play on our mind, whether our personality / sexual orientation / gender / fetish etc

Always happy to chat too, just PM.
Lets get swishy!
