I just got over an intense battle with insomnia, and now I am sleeping about 20 hours a day. I get up for meds, maybe a bath, and I'm done. I actually get out of breath if I try to do anything. I feel scared, as I've never had a flare be this bad. I have a back that feels like it's made of steel. My poor husband wants to rub it for me, but I can honestly say that I hurt too bad to be touched. I would like to know if others have been this bad, and if so, did you go to the MD? I mean what can he do, I'm already on plenty of pain meds. I'm drinking/eating when I'm awake. So dehydration isn't a factor. Do I just wait it out, and count my blessings that my husband is on a temporary (we hope) lay-off and he's taking care of things? I feel and look like a zombie. I sleep all of the time, still I have black circles around my eyes. Moving hunched over is the only way I can walk, and I can't sleep lying down. Hubby and I have moved into adjoining recliners on the sofa! If you have a similar story, please let me know, I need to know whether or not there is light at the end of this tunnel. Thnx -T

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