I have this question. Is it alright for two people who have PTSD to be together as a couple? I have PTSD and have been in treatment since July'08. My PTSD steams back to my 2 tours in Africa when I was in the militaty. I don't get the nightmares, but alot of the other symptoms. I am recently separated becasue I had an affair. Most of my DS friends know that. Now, the guy I had the affair with, we are still seeing eachother. He has just come back from Afghanistan and had a terrible time while over there. He already has a history of PTSD a number of years ago and had it under control until other incidences occurred over seas this time. I am stronger now that I have ever been and want to be there for him. I have not seen his bad days yet as we live in separate dwellings, but our time together will soon increase and I am looking for support from those of you out there. He is a great person, loving and kind; he is someone I truly care for and would hate to give up his friendship because thats what we were before the affair started. Any comments would be appreciated on the subject of PTSD not the fact that I had an affair.

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