My husband has had SAD pretty much all his life. He is very stronly against any meds. My Dr. told me it gets worse with age. He is 52 and the last three years have been awful. I got him a light and it makes a HUGE difference when he uses it. He sometimes goes way into hiimself; like he doesn't look at me, talk to me, touch me, it's like I don't exist in his world for weeks at a time and then all of a sudden - he snaps out of it and Poof! He comes back into my world again and it's like nothing happened. When he's like that if I ask him questions or ask for intimacy he gets angry and sometimes very hateful and hurtful. Then when he's back in my world; he doesn't remember any of the things he said. My Dr. told me "for every action there's a re-action" and for me to stop re-acting to his moods. That's helped in the way that I just leave him alone and wait for him to "come back", at least I don't get my feelings hurt. But can anyone tell me where he goes? I mean, is he just in some dark hole? He still functions at work and around his friends but they, too, see a difference. Any feedback would be greatly appreciate!!!!!

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