Well yesterday was a very interesting day. I went to my psychatrist. After two years of pushing about my diagnosis and the fact that I am still having major mood swings. I get so angry sometimes for no reason at all. Well he diagnosed me as bi-polar. I find comfort in that. He gave me a mood stablizing medicine. He said I am to take it twice a day on top of my once a day effexor. I also went on a date with my husband last night and it went really really well and we had such a great time. We also visited with my brother in law and his wife. He just got back from Iraq three weeks ago. I am very concerned for him and I dont know what to do. His wife was telling me he is just so distant. He dosnt want to help with the baby he just wants to do his thing. He also told her he dosnt want her taking any anti-deppresents because he dosnt believe in them. But she is really needing some help right now. Before he went over there he always had this sparkle in his eye. Even being a Cocky Marine. His eyes and his face would just fill with Joy and happiness when he plays with the kids. Now the look is just dark and empty. He still played with the girls a bit but he was different. His eyes didnt sparkle like there was no joy anymore. His wife would cry at the drop of a hat and she was asking me for help. I dont know what to do. My husband dosnt know what to do. His brother wont talk to him about anything. All my husband can say is that war will do that to you. But he saw what I was seeing. So did my sister in law tonight when I talked to her about it. She dosnt know what to do for her brother or sister in law. So does anybody have any ideas how to help them? His brother is only 21 and his wife is only 20. How do we help them? What should we do?

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????
