Thank you for the posts.
Today started like most days, with the pain,nausia,anxiety,deppressed everything. I felt so bad, I was almost in tears. I know my wife loves me so much, I fear that my illness is putting so much stress on our marriage. she tries so hard to get me up and out of the bed everyday. I fear she is getting sick of hearing me whine about my woes. and I don't want her to feel it's something she is doing wrong. I just don't know what to do, we openly talk about my situation and I know she is doing everything she knows to support me. How I wish this thing would give me a break, I think I am going downhill, I am only 46, I feel so mixed up and hopeless. I just want to be happy and enjoy my life.
P.S. I will explore some of the suggestions from the replies.

Thank you to everyone who has posted,
If anyone who has crohn's knows the reality of the illness and it's painful symptoms, I have revived an old standby reaction to resolve my own suffering. Until I can figure out this mess I have slipped into, I found out by trial and error that if I do not eat anything solid then the pain level decreases. So for now I just drink liquids and eat as less as possible. The idea is to give the digestive tract a rest and I have found out that this really helps. The other side of the coin is weight loss and lack of energy. so the worse of the two evils pain or hunger pains. I know this sounds crazy but it works. I have to do something radical like this or suffer. I will keep checking this site for more insite.
P.S. I also check the Crohn's section on this site for input. hope things get better.
