Haven't posted here recently for the simple reason I haven't had much to post about. My health took a nose dive and I've been unable to focus on anything more more complicated than making it through the day and trying to get my life reorganized enough for me to adjust to my new, lower levels of functioning.
That last part's been going pretty well by the way - I have a computer set up over my bed now, so that the bed rest I need isn't terribly boring; but it also has the excellent side effect of making my health when I'm out of bed much improved as well. So things are actually going pretty well.
So, haven't had much time or energy for BDSM. Lifestyle things have continued as they were without too much focus on perfection; basically boy and I have been puttering along, both being fairly lenient with each other so we have more energy to focus on just being there for each other. From an outside perspective I'm pretty sure we'd pass as a vanilla couple very easily at the moment, heh.
It's something not many people think about I suppose - what D/s looks like in the long term, yes, but also what it looks like when other things have to come first. And times like these is when it becomes clear why people put so much stress on D/s relationships being firstly about the relationship.
Sometimes life circumstances mean you spend less time having kinky sex and more time cuddling and watching tv. Sometimes you need to take a break from pushing each other to be the best you can and just focus on loving each other. It doesn't make the relationship any less a D/s relationship. It just means that life is hectic, humans are vast, and sometimes you need to take a time out to relax.
Having said that, I do miss the kinky shit. I'm hopeful that I can get back to it asap, considering the slow improvement to my health.
I also miss having a family unit. Adjusting from a three person family back to a couple is hard. The hardest part is over - the mourning, the sadness, the healing. But now... well. There was a hole inside me before Serina came into my life, and now that she is gone from it again, the hole is reopening.
I am hopeful that we will find someone to join us eventually. Just gotta stay positive and keep looking.
