I have a question for everyone who has lost a loved one... My husband and I find ourselves not wanting to be around anyone. We used to be very social and everyone's "rescuer". We were "the rescuers" and everyone could count on us for everything. After losing our son and our best friend within 6 months of each other (we took care of both of them) we just feel that we need time to heal and not have anyone "need" us. We have friends and relatives call and say they are coming to town and we get sick to our stomachs. We totally avoid having to spend time with anyone. I would like to add that we both are very active physically, we run or hike every day, we both have full time jobs and enjoy the social aspect there so we have already addressed the depression issue. Am I making sense? We feel more comfortable around strangers than we do our friends and family. Is there a sydrome for this? Can anyone tell us that we are somewhat normal or that they have experienced this same thing? Any thoughts would be appreciated. We feel so lame. Thanks in advance....

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