Hi everyone...As you know Children do not understand depression very good. I can fake it better around my 12yr old, but my 17yr old can see right through me. She is typical teenage girl. Her friends seem to be everything right now. I do sometimes wonder that seeing her less often is because she is a teenager or she cannot deal with Dad's pain of depression. My dauther went on a cruise, so I took my 12yr old on a couple day vacation. We stayed at a luxury beach front resort. We hung out at the beach. He got to see a lot of pretty girl's, and ate a $100.00 meal. He had a great time and I acted like I did. I still have to fake having a good time even under those conditions. It leaves me total drained mentally. When we came back I woke up the next morning severly depressed. It drained me mentally when I was with him and after we got back I was even worse. I have lived this way for a LONG TIME. It is brutal. Anyone have any follow-up on this rock and a hard place feelings, because if I cannot fix this it will eventually lead to you know what...

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