Well, I'll try not to make this to long. My name is Amanda( incase you havent guess lol) I am 20 years old and i was just "diagnosed" with "hypersexuality" and i am a Sex Addict. There are only 3 people i know who knows this about me. My therapist, my mother and on of my best friends. And now you all i guess lol. I was in denial for awhile i guess. I had suspicions for awhile but ignored them. I moved from FL to MS where my family is to get away from my problems there. I was depressed from it. I hated myself, and still do, for giving in all the time. I have "relationships" with older men, younger (but no minors), single , attached, etc etc. These compulsions i get, i haven't been able to fight, but now i am willing to try. I don't know what made me decide to join here. I guess i'm tired of feeling alone in this. Thanks for listening.
there are AA-type groups you can join to get help: Sexaholics Anonymous (SA), Sex Addicts Anonymous (SAA), Sexual Compulsives Anonymous (SCA), and Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA). If there are none of these near you, there are phone and online groups or you can go to an AA meeting - they will welcome you with open arms.
