I learned a big lesson about not resisting treatment this past week. My anxiety ramped up pretty bad during a short-term work assignment this past October and November. 2 months later I still could not ramp back down. My moods were all over the place, I couldnt sleep, I was angry and upset all the time over even the smallest thing, and grew increasingly depressed. Oh, and my libido totally tanked - something not at all normal for me. All the while I thought I was losing my mind. Yet I was so sick of dealing with the inevitable side-effects of a med change and hauling my ass into the dr 3x in a month for bronchitis, I just refused to do what I knew I should. Finally, out of sheer misery and desperation, I FINALLY went to see my pdoc for a follow up. She totally got what I was going through and my feeling I needed to ramp down the anxiety and fast before I went off the deep end. A tiny bump in the amount of klonipin I was taking, and within a week I felt sooooo much better. I hope my little tale will help someone else who battles with these same issues. BTW - sex is fabulous again!

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