I love this.

Before I started taking certain medication, I relied on my body to let me know when it was time for penetration. Unfortunately, I can’t rely on it now because one of my meds causes serious dryness (all over the body) so just because I’m not getting wet doesn’t mean I’m not ready. I learned this the hard way, by being stubborn and thinking there was something wrong with me.

Once I stopped stubbornly refusing to use lube, it didn’t take long for me to realize I was just as open and ready as I’d always been, my body just wasn’t able to easily produce lubrication because of the medication.
