Hi and welcome. Its not unusual to be depressed with this DD. I take an antidepressent and find it helps. Through the years I have cut it back to onehalf pill every other day and I do well. Sorry for the loss of your friend . This would be a good time to talk to your doctor about depression...
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

chornsguy, welcome to the forum.  I also take an antidepressant for anxiety and have done so for years.  It really seems to help keep my gut more relaxed and reduce stomach pain.  There is no shame in taking something for it, but if you choose to take a non-prescription route, there are support groups out there.  Try going to the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America's website (www.ccfa.org) and search for your local chapter.  My state currently does not have a chapter, but there is still a support group.  Hopefully, that will point you in the right direction. 
 
I went to an Arthritis Foundation seminar recently and they had a clinical psychologist speak about living with chronic pain.  She seemed to be very good and understanding and I liked her approach (she prefers not to use medication but will allow patients to remain on any they were already taking, if they choose).  There are professionals out there like this that can help you find ways to cope that don't involve more medications.  Best of luck to you and you can always find support at this forum. 
Crohn's Disease, Acid Reflux/Gastritis, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Endometriosis, Arthritis, Depression/Anxiety.  Too many meds to list them all.  =)
