My doc called me while on vacation to give me the results of my blood test. I test positive for ANA and then negative, so she is upping my Amantadine to 100 mg in a.m. and 100 mg in p.m. along with my Neurontin 900 mg at night. The Amantadine is supposed to give me more energy, but I am not seeing any difference. While on vacation we went to a zoo, I made it halfway thru and had to sit on a bench in the shade and let my boys and my hubby finish the zoo without me because I could barely walk. I am soooooo tired of my legs doing this. I literally have to hold on to things as I walk if I push myself too far or I will literally fall down. Which is what happened when we went to Santa Monica to the ocean by the time I walked from the car down a whole bunch of stairs and across a huge beach I fell in the sand, which I thought was no big deal but it made my husband mad that I push myself too far, but I hated holding everyone back from doing things and besides I wanted to go to the beach, although I only sat on a blanket about 200 yards away, but I enjoyed the rest and watching my boys play in the still cold water. I wore tennis shoes when we went to Universal Studios Hollywood and believe it or not I made it all the way thru without renting a scooter or wheelchair until the very end when I barely made it back to the car. Does this happen to any of you gals? When you walk too much or do too much around the house do your feet start dragging and your legs feel heavy and weak? I have not read where Chronic Fatigue patients have this happen to their legs, so I am thinking my doc is still on the wrong track.

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????
