SO AS YOU ALL KNOW I WAS TOLD BY TWO MD'S I HAD MS AND WAS SENT TO A HOSPITAL OUT OF TOWN UNDER CARE OF ANOTHER MD FOR IV STEROIDS BUT WHEN I GOT TO HOSPITAL IT WAS FREAKING A NIGHT MARE!!!! TO MAKE A VERY LONG STORY SHORT... THE DOCTOR AND HIS RESIDENT STUDENTS (WHO PRIMARILY CARED FOR ME) TOLD ME THAT THERE IS A LESIONS ON SPINAL CORD BUT THEY THINK THEY ARE SCARRING ON SPINAL CORD FROM PAST NECK SURGERY FOR A HERNIATED DISC AND THERE ARE TWO 4MM LESIONS ON THE RIGHT FRONTAL LOBE OF MY BRAIN BUT DO NOT THINK IT IS MS BECAUSE THEY ARE SO SMALL AND MS DOES NOT APPEAR IN RIGHT FRONTAL LOBE OF BRAIN. THEY DID A LUMBAR PUNCTURE TODAY AND DREW BLOOD FOR ANTOHER TYPE OF MS CALLED DEVIK'S. I WILL NOT KNOW ANY RESULTS UNTIL 7-14 DAYS THEY SAID AND POSSIBLY LONGER THEN THAT. I AM ON MY OWN GOING TO A SPECIALIST IN HOUSTON,TX FOR 2ND OPINION. THEN THE DOCTOR TOLD ME HE WAS NOT SURE WHAT THE LESIONS IN MY BRAIN WERE AND JUST GUESSING THAT THE SPINE WAS SCAR BUT BECAUSE I WAS NOT PARALYZED, BLIND, AND ABLE TO STILL WALK AND TALK HE WAS PRETTY SURE IT WAS NOT MS. I TOLD THE MAN THAT MY DAD AND SISTER WHO HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED FOR YEARS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ABLE TO WALK, TALK, AND NOT BEEN PARALYZED AND HAVE HAD SOME VISUAL PROBLEMS BUT NOT PERMANENT BLINDNESS AND WERE STILL DIAGNOSED WITH MS. I AM FEELING LIKE I AM FREAKING NUTS BUT I KNOW WHAT I AM PHYSICALLY FEELING IN MY BODY... TINGLING, SEVERE LEFT EYE PAIN, MUSCLE SPAMS, INVOLUNTARY MUSCLE MOVEMENT, BACK PAIN, WHEN I BEND MY NECK DOWN I HAVE A ELECTRICAL IMPULSE THAT RADIATES DOWN BACK INTO MY LEGS AND FEET, ETC.... BUT HELL MAYBE I AM JUST CRAZY!!!!!

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????
A friend sent this to me..As far as I can see, grief will never truly end.It may become softer overtime, more gentleand some days will feel sharp.But grief will last as long as Love does - ForeverIt's simply the way the absence of your loved onemanifests in your heart.
