Just signed up today. Have a dr. appointment to talk to someone Wed. Went from being totally "normal" to being overcome by anxiety after I had my first baby. Never knew what anxiety was until then. That was 9 years ago. Have been suffering somewhat silently. Gone to the doctor or should I say doctor"s", to the ER on numerous occasions in the beginning because that was when I thought I really was dying. Didn't know at that point what was really going on and so far to this day with all my very obvious symptoms not one doctor has mentioned anxiety or helped me in any way. Another source of anxiety because of course I feel like or wish that maybe that's not it and something else is medically wrong with me and they aren't even trying to figure out what. Although at this point with it being 9 years I now figure if I did have some sort of medical condition that gives me these anxiety like symptoms I'd be dead by now so I am convinced now and so are my close friends some of who suffer from this as well that it's got to be anxiety. Now I will go to this new dr on Wed and hopefully she will be the one to finally help me. My question is, I'm guessing she is at some point going to suggest meds. THAT TERRIFIES ME! Seeing as I am scared of anything and everything of course I am not too excited to take medication because the thought of that causes me anxiety. Seems counterproductive! I was hoping someone could convince me otherwise or share some positive feedback if you have taken meds for this with a positive hopefully side effect free experience. Thanks and sorry for rambling.

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????
