My Boyfriend has been sober for about a month now which is wonderful because he has struggled with this for awhile. My dilemma is trying to feel happy for him but trying to deal with his personality changes. He is on Three different medications and they have seemed to make him spacey and distant. He has told me that he feels like he is coming out of a coma is part of the reason why he is acting the way he is. I have heard that people go through different changes emotionally and mentally when becoming sober. I just wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this and is it really only a temporary situation. It just seems like we're going from the problem of drinking and the roller coaster ride that I went on with that to now an extreme opposite of tiredness,lack of motivation,and preoccupation of tv and computer. Our sex life has also suffered because of the medications. He just started Prexeva, an antidepressent that was prescribed to him for social anxiety and he also takes Depakote and Campral for alcohol cravings.I hope someone can shed some light on this for me. I love this Man very much but it is depressing feeling like once one problem is being treated that its opening up room for another problem to form. Thanks for your input.

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