I just wanted to vent... I started feeling very lightheaded on Monday. I've never felt like that before so after calling my doctors office and speaking to the on call doctor, I went to the ER. The doctor who treated me there is an idiot (I've had him before. He prescribed me steroids and told me it was definitely fine to take them while breastfeeding. I started taking them that night and called the pediatirician the next morning who told me absolutely not. I ended up pumpling and dumping for two weeks because once you start a steroid treatment you have to finish it.) Anyway, he ran a ddimer and pt/inr and he said they came back normal. He noticed I had a little sunburn so he decided I was dehydrated. (I am so fair skinned that I burn from being out in the sun for a half hour and it wasn't even very hot that day). He gave me some fluids and asked if I felt better. I said no and he said, "well we're discharging you." So then yesterday I called my primary and told the secretary that I had gone to the ER the night before feeling lightheaded and they discharged me but I feel the same. She asked me if I wanted to see the nurse practitioner who I also can't stand. (Last time I had a cold, I called to ask what cough medicine I could take. They made me come in. I told him I was also exhausted from the warfarin. He told me I had allergies, he could tell by the bags under my eyes and told me to take some claritin.) So she said the doctor will see me on Friday for a follow up. Feeling out of options, I called the hematologist that I was referred to ( I saw him once) and they told me that it's not their problem. and he can't give an opinion. I've never seen a specialist but isn't that what they're supposed to do? Give an opinion when the primary doesn't know? Just to complain a little more, the last time I saw my primary he literally walked out of the room to go on the computer and look up an article on PE. So for the last three days, I've been feeling terrible and have been staying inside with my two-year old twins because I'm afraid to go anywhere with them because I feel like I might pass out. Again, thanks for reading...

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????
