I was in a car wreck about a year ago, i was with my wife and at the time our 1 year old daughter. Wasn't that bad of a wreck, a little scary with some stiff necks. 3 days later woke up in the middle of the night having an anxiety attack. Went to the er. I really haven't had too many panic attacks, but just the fear or dying, going crazy, just some fears. The physical conditions suck also. I was put on Paxil about 2 weeks after wreck. I was on 10mg a day for about 2 months. It made me feel "normal" again for about 2 more months until i had to drive back to where the wreck happened. I thought it was ptsd, but was told it was not. So i got back on paxil, up the dose to 20mg for about 3 months then it stopped working, or actually made me worse, not anxiety worse but unbearably tired. So i'm on Wellbutrin now and it seems to work sometimes and not others. I just want to get back to "normal". I've had the perfect life pretty much. I've lost a few close people a few years ago but that is it. My wife is awsome and very understandable with this. My whole family is awsome. I just want to know will it ever go away, can i be normal without the help of medication. Regular life stresses don't bother me that much. Just this stupid "mental illness" which i hate those words. I'm new to this site and it is awsome to see other people with my problems. I hope to get to know you all.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
