My boyfriend of 4 1/2 years has MS. He was diagnosed shortly after we began dating. He had optic neuritis which eventually led to his diagnosis. He didn't go on treatment, he believes in all natural forms of treatment, such as healthy diet, exercise and vitamins. Unfortunately, this past June of 2007, he had another exacerbation which was a bit more serious and landed him in the hospital for a week. At that point he had an MRI (his first since his original diagnosis) and we discovered new leisons. After a few weeks he was pretty much back to 'normal' and he began taking Avonex. At first his Uthoff's Syndrome (blurry vision due to raise in body temperature) in his right eye subsided and we thought, wow! this must be working! But within the last couple of months the Uthoff's is back. This scares me. This man is so amazing, such a great friend and boyfriend. We live together so this affects me very deeply. I just want him to be okay. He's so young (30 years old) and we are planning a life together. I just want him to stay healthy and happy! Any advice or support anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated!

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