The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

For what it's worth

It's called Intrinsa, a name I expect to see inflicted upon a handful of poor, defenseless baby girls a couple of years from now, and it's a testosterone patch for women that, says manufacturer Procter & Gamble, improves sexual desire and satisfaction in women whose ovaries had been removed.

Geez. I don't have ovaries, for obvious reasons, and my libido is basically shot to hell. Hmmm.... True Blue Deb says that she's not familiar with the technical term "female sexual dysfunction," but:

I have lived through a period of Zero Desire. Getting off the Paxil straightened that right up though.

I suppose I could quit taking Paxil, but that would require me to start taking Paxil.

Inasmuch as I don't have a partner to disappoint, though, this is probably less of an issue than it could be.

"Back away from the Paxil and no one gets hurt!"

Seriously, it's bad juju. One of my old bad docs put me on it when I tried to quit smoking and went into dark overlord of the bitches mode. It made me so nice and quiet, they kept me on it for two years. Then I found a new doc. lol
