My ex had a bad back from a car accident that interfered every once in a while.

it does from time to time. Sometimes he just hurts to much. Other times, we have to be creative..

I have Bipolar, so I'm a weird kind of disabled I guess. If I'm in a cycle, it can interfere with my sex life ranging from mildly to extremely. My husband has a slipped disk, so sometimes that interferes with our sex life as well. If both his back and my crazy are acting up, sex gets put on hold for a while.

I am schizo affective so ya a whole bunch of people (at least 6) watching, commenting and and just generally being a nuisance is rather annoying. in fact my ex said he couldn't handle it if it wasn't going to be just me

I'm not sure if ADD counts as a disability, but I've got that and it interferes with a lot of stuff. Sometimes it's really hard for me to get aroused because my mind will wander away from sexy things.

Occasionally. Some days I'm in too much pain or too fatigued to even think about sex.

I have various mood disorders and yes, it does interfere when i try to get into a relationship. In fact they're the main reason why my relationships fall apart because they just kill my libido all the time.

I am on dialysis for kidney failure (I'm 26) and it makes me exhausted. I'm also even more self conscious than before because of scars from several surgeries and my fistula on my arm. It doesn't really cause a problem for my boyfriend, but it makes me very insecure.

This happens to me too. Although I wouldn't wish it on anyone else, I'm glad I'm not alone.

So between that, the mood disorder, and the vaginismus, things can get pretty complicated. But I recently got my first toy, and it's been helping a bit.

Yeah, I get fatigued really easily and I can't walk if I get too tired, so I have to be pretty careful. So far it's only been a problem if I've had particularly bad days though

Not personally, but I know someone who is mentally ill and they are incapable of having a sexual relationship because they simply can't handle it. Plus their disability makes it hard to be around other people

It's the same for me. There are days when I jut cannot get aroused or concentrate on sex at all, even when I really want to. My brain just goes into a fury jumping from thing to thing and I just can't slow down and enjoy the moment. It is really frustrating. My bad back and joints can interfere as well, there's nothing to kill the mood like your hip suddenly popping and sending nerve pain down your whole leg.

On my boy's side, there are times he is in too much pain to think about sex, too. He has a lot of mouth and jaw pain from a bad broken jaw that happened a few years ago, and he gets terrible migraines. Both of those can really put a damper on our mood.

Sometimes I hurt too much or am too tired, even if I have a strong desire for sex, to go through with it. My diagnoses just get in the way. Sometimes I find positions I used to love are very difficult physically. My husband and I have learned some ways to adapt. We try to keep learning as much as we can as we go. Though we don't do things in quite the same ways that we used to favor, we are pretty satisfied with our sex lives at the moment.

No and this is one area in my life it doesn't touch for some unknown reason. I have epilepsy, granted its only Petit Mal Epilepsy and I lose portions of activities and conversations every day. But for some unknown reason the "spells" don't happen during sex. Oh the "spells" are like daydreaming only worse because I don't know what transpires while I'm in one, what people are saying to me, even that there's a conversation going on. Maybe sex stimulates another part of my brain that keeps me aware.

I don't have a severe physical disability but I do have fibromyalgia and some mental issues that can definitely impact my sexual relationship with my partner.

I had a spinal lipoma, it affected my ability to walk and do anything normal. Sex would be uncomfortable, and so yes it affected our sex lives (he couldn't freely tie me up or be as rough as he wanted). I've had a second surgery done to correct it, but I now have arthritis and nerve damage in my back (and arthritis in my knees). It doesn't affect us as much, but there is still worry and things I just can't do without suffering.

My boyfriend is blind and it doesn't interfere at all. He's very confident in his sexual abilities and he's great!
