Are any of you who are having to take care of your spouse feeling like just a caregiver. I don't feel like a wife anymore but just a caregiver or even his mother. I know my husband has had alot of depression due to his illness and that there is no hope to recover, he spends most of his time alone. We used to be so close and did alot together. I miss him so much. We never cuddle anymore watch tv together or do anything together. I know what he can do is limited but I would accept anything. I just feel so alone, almost like I am a widow already. Sometimes I am convinced he doesn't love me anymore but deep in my heart I know he does. My husband has never been much of a talker, so it is no different now and he trys to stay in denial about the whole thing. He does not like to talk about it at all. I understand that is the way he copes with it and try to respect it, but when you don't know what a person is thinking or feeling it is really hard to understand their moods swings or lack of interest. I don't mean to sound selfish and uncaring for what he is going through but I just don't know how to deal with being alone... I want to spend what time we have left together being close and doing what we can together and to have all those extra memories. Does anyone out there understand what I am trying to say......

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