Recently, my girl broke up w/me over a number of issues one being that my mother and I are too involved in each others lives. I spoke to my psyche about this and she said "as long as you're living w/mom, other women in your life will have problems with that". Problems of intimacy, problems of being able to have our (me and any partner)own life. So I told my mom this and she just became very sad. I said "mom I just wanted to talk". I said "you're sad". My mom tried to tell me that she always gets sad around Christmas. I know that she became sad when I mentioned the idea of the two of us living seperately. Today, I said "good morning mom" and she just replied "hi" with sadness in her voice. I feel awful. My mother depends on me financially and even more emotionally. I've lived w/her most of my life. She raised my brother and I and then she took care of my sick dad who died and left her penniless. In that time she never had a job or recieved an education and now she is in her late 60's. My older brother left my mom and I and is now married w/2 children. I have the responsiblity of caring for mom which is fine, but I don't think I'll ever be able to have my own relationship. I'm 37, never been married, have no children, and I can't seem to keep any relationships. I feel the weight of the world on my shoulders. I'm so unhappy...

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