Since this site is focused not only on sex, why is it named Chronic Sex?
It is our belief that the way we relate to ourselves – self-esteem, self-compassion, self-love, and self-care – is a direct result of our illnesses. We treat ourselves negatively when we have flare-ups, neglecting self-care and self-love, trading it for self-degradation.
How we treat ourselves has a huge impact on our relationships, our sexuality, and our sex lives.
In order to improve our Quality of Life, we have to start improving how we relate to and see ourselves.
Countless apps and companies focus on adherence to medications or treatments, but few focus on self-care or self-love. Self Care Catalysts is a company that focuses on both and is looking to start a self-care movement – which we’re totally stoked about!
To take that further, though, there are few websites that focus on these issues with chronic illnesses.
Self-care is even more important for us… I write as I sit at home after debating for half an hour if my fibro pain was bad enough to stay home.
I’d be lying if I said part of starting CS wasn’t to help myself, too.
As far as why our movement is called Chronic Sex? Because it sounds sexy!
