So my boyfriend's family MADE me go to Universal Studios last weekend. Really didn't want to go, because i know i do not do well around crowds at all, even on my meds and I hate roller coasters and really all rides. My boyfriend thought I would like Universal better because its more simulations, less coasters but I still thought the simulations were terrifying. I managed to sit in the back through them with my boyfriend's pregnant sister so the seat woudn't rock back and forth but no way could i keep those 3d glasses on--it was terrifying. Well anyways, my boyfriend had never been on the Mummy and he told me that it wasn't a roller coaster and wanted me to go. Well as we were walking in, I could hear the announcement saying that there was a delay on the ride. It was dark in there, humid and lots and lots of people. I couold feel myself start to panick, espc when I saw the sign saying if you have motion sickness or don't like roller coasters not to ride. Well we were in line for like 30 minutes and everybody else was fine but I could feel myself start to get dizzy and was dripping in sweat. I knew a panic attack was well on its way and i had to get out of there. I didn't know how to get out though because I was disorientated and freaking out. I ended up running out of the line trying to get to the nearest exit to the sunshine to get some fresh air before i passed out/threw up in line. Every door I tried to push was locked and I couoldn't get out!!! Finally a small 6 year old girl saw me crying and panicking and opened a door that opened...lol and I escaped! But then I passed out crying on the side of the curb and my boyfriend's family was so confused on what had happened. My boyfriend didn't want his parents to know that I have GAD and am on meds but I had to tell them because I had to get some water and take a xanax and breathe breathe breathe.....so now they know and I feel better. But that Mummy ride anticipation was Gawd awful...horrible time at universal this weekend. nothing is worse than having a panick attack and then getting lost and not being able to get out. Has this ever happened to anyone else? I hate amusement parks. the only show I liked was the cute animal show and the fear factor because nothing was 'coming out at me' and no movmements...

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????
