Ok heres the thing, I was dx with BP 7 years ago and I wasn't convinced this was quite accurate. Although I have had extreme depression through my life and 3 breakdowns but never been hospitalized, just went on the crazy horrible sex drugs and rock n roll run and somehow am still alive and that was all before I was 21. Then I met my husband and settled down and had 4 kids, its been up & down and Ive had my moments but only one reall bad time and that was when I sought counceling and got diagnosed. Got on some meds (which I was off and on through different docs through the first 3 years). We moved out of state a few months later and Ive never seen a doc for it since. Ive been stable for 4 years now and no meds but now the past few months Im completely loosing my mind! Forgetful soooo bad, at a loss for words often i have to think a while about what I say then I say a whole lot for a little idea, forgetful... I also have severe back pain and several other pain and ect issues so Im trying to decypher if this is a BP episode or is related to the other issues, Im thinking a possible MS or Fibro as I fit into almost every symptom there is and am not living like a person anymore. I have to find a solution. I am concerned though as I am or just did go through the crazy spending money I don't have spree, bad checks, even though I knew I was doing it I couldn't stop myself I was convinced it was ok really....this leads me to BP. I don't think I can mix my pain med, Tramadol with any BP meds so Im afraid to get on some as I am so scared I won't be able to get out of bed again. Do I have BP & more? Does BP ever cause severe pain? what do you all think? Honestly I don't know enough about BP to know and Im lost....sorry for the book but thanks for your time

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????
