Hello Everyone. I have had Anxiety and other related forms of Anxiety for almost 19 yrs now. When I first went to seek help it was probably to late because I had it for almost a year before I looked for help. I actually wanted to end my life it got so bad. But I was to afraid to do something like that. And the thought of ending my life made me even more afraid. I was in and out of ER and Dr offices so many times. But not once did I explain my fears for example having some strange disease that they would not diagnose, fear that I was going to end up in an insane asylum, brain tumours. The worst part were the nights because I could not sleep so when your brain doesn't get rest you feel awful. Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed by this. I still do feel this way at times. I do not get Panic attacks. But I recognize anxiety symptoms. I have been on meds now for 18 yrs at time I was fine or atleast I thought so. But more recently over the past 2 years the anxiety has emerged even stronger. This I do not understand. I have changed meds in the past 2 weeks but no help yet. To me Anxiety is a disease of the mind and once it gets a foot hold it seems to be there for good. Right now I am having a tough time dealing with it. I have asked Drs how and why but never get a clear answer. Hopefully at some point in the near future someone will come up with an answer. I don't mean to sound so glum about this. But I hate Anxiety with a passion. Thanks to everyone who reads this.Treeman

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
