2011 Update and New Blogs

Hello everybody!

I know it's been awhile since I've posted.  I've become more of a lurker than a blogger this last year.  That's a good thing for the most part.  Life with William is still pretty good, although we did have a few issues arise earlier this year.  A couple of months ago, I noticed a few "warning" signs - he had failed to orgasm twice in a few weeks (first time since discovery), he wasn't remembering what I told him, I had to email him at work to tell him something, etc. - and I mentioned exactly that to him in just about those words "I have noticed some warning signs that concern me."  I dropped the subject and the signs went away...but my "spidey-sense" tingled again about 6 weeks later.  Nothing as specific this time, but he seemed "distracted" and was wanting sex less often, so just on a hunch, I brought it up to him one evening for a brief discussion.  I was not confrontational, but told him again that I saw a few things that concerned me.  He admitted to slipping and masturbating a few times.  We talked - and I pointed out that even if it only happened a few times as he said, I could tell something was different.  No matter how much control he thought he had over AGP, obviously that was not the case.  It's been okay since, but I have learned that this journey is never over.  William will always struggle to control his AGP...which is okay - as long as he doesn't give up.  And neither will I.

Anyway, my main reason for posting today was to add two new blogs to my links section.  Jack has posted them on his website also and I checked them out today.  Michael's story is very similar to my William's, I think, but  Michael and Rebecca are choosing to deal with Michael's AGP in a slightly different way than William and I have.  I admit to a great deal of curiosity as to how it works for them!  As I have said before, everyone's relationship is different and they have to define the boundaries for themselves.  I wish them the VERY BEST of luck on their journey...
