Last year (and even up to about 4 months ago) I was diagnosed only with arthritis in my legs. I was able to walk though but it was starting to get worse and worse. I then started having pain throughout my whole body and especially sharp pain in my lower to mid back and my shoulders and neck have always been stiff. About 4 months ago, I found I just could no longer walk. I ended up in a wheelchair. I'm just wondering if something like this has ever happened to anyone else? Oh and I was diagnosed by 2 specialists that told me I had fibromyalgia but my old doctor said that there was no such thing and that I should not be in my wheelchair that I was just being lazy. Fortunately I have now switched doctors and have a doctor that does believe in it. They are still trying to find out what meds will help. Besideds being stuck in a wheelchair (and feeling like my life is over...at least the life that I used to enjoy...the life where I could go on day trips and just get out and do things) I am constantly tired, and aching all over. Just wanted to know if anyone else felt this way and what do you do to overcome it? Thanks for letting me vent.

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