Before last March, I was normal as far as health went. I went to yearly doctor's wellness checks, saw my GYN once a year, went to the dentist. All that changed last March when I had a panic attack and went to the ER (cause I thought I was having a heart attack). Heart tests came back fine. I actually probably had acid reflux and took Nexium for awhile. Over the summer, I was fine. Then this fall I started to feel "down" and the acid reflux (chest pain) came back. Then a lump was found in my breast and after a biopsy came back benign. But instead of feeling better, I went into full anxiety mode. I went to see the GI about acid reflux, he did an upper GI series - normal and an endoscopy - I have mild gastritis. But during the upper GI series the radiologist found a bone lesion on my pelvis. So that had to be checked by an MRI - benign. Now I'm a complete freak about every little symptom and feeling I have. Last week I thought I had a clot in my leg and went to get a venous sonogram - no clot. I feel like I am starting to cross the line to hypochondria. My husband is concerned that this is not healthy behavior. I don't know how to stop from thinking I'm going to die at any minute (especially when I feel something). And every day I feel like I wake up with a different symptom. I am on zoloft and klonopin and seeing a therapist. But so far, it's getting worse, not better.

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????
