I have had OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) since I was probably about 12 or 13. I have had one anxiety attack that I can recall, and it was VERY scary!
My Internist told me that I need to "relax" or it will make the Crohn's worse. I take Celexa 40 mg daily and Xanax as needed, the lowest dose. She prescribed both of them for me.
I think the OCD makes me worry almost all the time, for one thing, and if I get any kind of stress, it all just balloons from there!
I have had some depression lately, thinking about the whole Crohn's thing. Mostly I just mourn for how it was before when I didn't have it. Sometimes I also get mad about having it. Then I worry about it...(of course! )
