Just wondering what everyone considers a "flare up" vs. just regular daily symptoms. I think people have differing opinions, and I know what the neuro & nurse consider it to be. I don't consider it a "flare" if it is a regular thing that comes and goes, like for me if I get cold, I get "wobbly" kind of unsteady, and have to really concentrate on balance (and sometimes use a cane) If it is predictable I don't consider it a flare (i.e.:if I'm sure it is coming upon PMS time and I feel puny and a little wobbly, or the barometer is changing drastically--I get sick when there is a storm coming. I DO consider it a flare, if I wake up and something stays numb(before I was diagnosed, and in the "figuring out what's wrong stage, I would go numb/tingly in places for about 5 weeks, and then would get all the way better. (I consider that a flare) I'm kind of an oddball, so far heat doesn't really affect me, and I've had no eye problems, but OH,THE VERTIGO!!! I wear crocs all the time now, just for safety)

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