I can so relate to you. I am not as sick, but I feel your pain. I try to make it one day at a time and when I thought this was too much I remembered my beautiful family and that the pain will go away. I also have been sick constantly since October. I had a baby in August and I felt like October hit and I lost control of my life. I had to stop nursing, I had to call in sick to work a lot and rely on my husband and my mom a lot. Last night was the first time I thought how can I do this anymore. The pain is too much. Then I woke up today and realized hope will come and I will win this flare and have my life back. I call in sick one to two days of my five day week and this is the first week I will start taking days without pay. I am scared, but I also know God and my family and my forum family will give me strength. You give me hope. I pray for you and do hope you feel my big hug to you. I am also seeing my dr on Wednesday to discuss my anxiety and depression meds because my gastro thought they may need adjustment. I have learned I am not alone and I love that feeling. We are here for you. Please keep us updated.
I have been thinking of you constantly today. I send you a big hug. I had a tough day today too. I also saw my gastro and I was in tears. She suggested some more diagnostic tests, but also talking to my primary care doctor about my depression meds. I am taking 20 mg of Lexapro and I know they are no longer doing their job. I am falling asleep and waking up with severe anxiety and horrible depression. I always blame my CD, but unfortunately I have depression and anxiety and I have to remember they are linked, but not treated the same. It's funny because you sound so sweet and you said you don't share your problems, well again unfortunately I do share mine and it is coming back to bite me in the fact that I don't look sick and I have a boss who is challenging my disease. I was informed of her overstepping her boundaries, but I now have to learn to share parts of my life, but not all. Hang in there. I am thinking of you and the biggest blessing is your supportive family. My disease is taking a toll on my husband and he is still hugging me when I am sad and hanging in there. Your boyfriend sounds the same way.
