Dear Dr. Betty,

Have you heard of a condition called PGAD (persistant genital arousal disorder)? I am in physical therapy for this and I feel like a freak.

I do not know anyone nor have i ever heard of anyone afflicted with this. However, the one good thing I have gained from having this is the relationship i needed to form with myself. I know every part of myself so well. I know all my pleasure spots and have to spend extra time with myself. I was diagnosed with this about five years ago and I have since learned to accept it but the shame is still there because most of the time I am the only one doctors have ever met and some doctors just think im a nymphomaniac.

Hello Betty,

My name is Kim Ramsey. I was diagnosed with Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder in June 2012. I wrote an article for a news agency that then sold that story on to a UK Tabloid called the Sun who published a very sensational report of my medical condition. To add insult to injury they attached my profession, home address to my medical condition. My article went viral and then with the help of the social media the issue went global. Obviously it was not the raising awareness that I had hoped to gain.
