In the same article I recently read (see "Old Topic, New Persective" discussion post), it talked about fertility workshops. Have any of you heard of these? It said that 40% of women seeking fertility treatments had the same symptoms of an anxiety disorder around the time of their first dr visit. So a woman dr created a 10 wk workshop that women go to while doing fertility treatments. In two studies, 55% of the women involved in this gave birth to healthy babies! (compared with 20% who did IF treatments alone) I'm no mathematician (my husband is), but that's almost tripling your chances! I am sure that I could never go to one of these workshops because I live out in the sticks (meaning, they are probably all too far away). BUT, the good thing out of this--I had my husband read the article and now he thinks DS isn't such a bad idea (before he was telling me that he thought it was a waste of time--I should be cleaning house instead), and he's ready to get in shape with me, and we are going to try to help each other relax. I am so excited! BTW, the workshops included group therapy, nutrition counseling, & relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, and yoga. The women who took the workshop were less anxious and depressed, and had a much easier time coping with the medical procedures. I think we could do all those things here, if we all help each other, what do you think? I know it's not the same as face to face, but we can try!

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????
