Has anyone found when they are depressed they lose their ability to feel love for their significant other and/or family members? My husband left in February and I thought I was doing really well dealing with my loss and moving on with my life. I was depressed but I put that down to loneliness as I am 200 miles from my family, I know I dont want my husband back but obviously life as I knew it fell apart as a result of him leaving and that has been pretty hard to take. I met a wonderful new guy a couple of months ago who is really sweet and affectionate and we seem to be made for each other. I have noticed that some days I feel a rush of love for him and am excited about making future plans with him but other days I just feel dead inside and consider leaving him because I'm scared of hurting him bad. Hell sometimes that cycle can occur in an hour, never mind a day. Anyone know if this is typical of depression and what I might be able to do to help myself? i dont wanna lose my guy, he's one in a million.

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