Chronic Illness and Sex
As a Christian who writes and speaks about sexual intimacy in marriage, I often hear from wives who struggle with chronic illness.

I am asking for your help in giving me insight and information to help me help these women. Most questions in this survey are open-ended, because there is so much I don't yet know. Pause when you need to so you can rest and reflect; you can return to the survey again later.

This survey is anonymous. If you are willing to be contacted with follow-up questions, please include your email address where indicated. If you have questions about how I am using this information, please feel free to contact me at
