so, for the past 9 months my gf and i have had a great relationship, sex aside. She has many problems, something wrong with her vagina not allowing us to have sex, not really a sexual person, shes had osteoperosis since she was born and is in constant pain in her hip, and has scoliosis and her pack is in a lot of pain. She puts up a really tough front, isn't mushy or anything, and keeps to herself. She lives with her uncle and cousins where shes going to school, and often does most of the chores and cooking. A very stressful life, being the only one that does all of these chores, but has never made any remarks or indications its been stressing her out. Last night we were on MSN and i helped her for 4 hours on an essay and a couple hours in she left to phone her mom, who i have very close ties with. Her mother called me this morning and woke me up to ask me if she has talked to me about what shes going through and how and how she feels, and i told her she hasn't said anything to me, she's not emotional at all with me. well apparently last night when she was gone she was on the phone with her mom, locked in her bathroom crying a lot, and couldn't stop but didn't say much as to why shes so upset. Its still basically a mystery and i dont know how to effectively talk to her and get her to open up to me. anyone with a similar problem that they remedied that can offer me any help at all? It's really bothering me, as she means the world to me and i didnt know this pain shes in.
