hi friends- i need some support/advice/words of wisdom.

I don't know what is wrong with me! i recently went into remission from crohn's, married the man of my dreams, we bought a home together, moved and got a new job. i have NOTHING to be sad about ! but I AM. i cry and feel so low...i miss my friends from before i moved so much, i dread going to work, all i want is to sleep and eat the occasional twix bar. I adore my new husband, he is trying to be paitent and supportive but i am such a jerk.

please - how can i feel so sad when i have so much?

Hi Stacy,

I can relate to that. I too started my journey with depression while my life was going VERY well. It was a mystery to me. For me, what I didn't realize was that I was in the beginning of a chronic illness which causes chronic fatigue. Looking back, I think that the depression just got diagnosed before the other illnesses.

I hope your crohn's stay in remission!! Can you get involved in some physical activity . . . sometimes that helps . . but I wouldn't wait too long to get some help from your doctor. The downward spiral of depression makes it harder and harder to reach out. I wouldn't want to see this turn into a trigger to wake up your crohn's either.

Keep us posted!

Blessings!

I have CD too and it is a difficult disease to come to terms with even when in remission. Are you taking any anti-depression medication? I know that it is a must for me. I have had CD for 40 years and have finally come to terms most of the time with the DD. I still have difficult days when I have to work at not feeling the victim but with professional threapy and anit-d meds I have them far less frequently and shorter in duration. You are welcome to IM me or email me anytime if you need someone who can relate to having Crohn's. Good luck and I hope you find relief soon.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.

Hi sas,
I get like you when everything is going well and there is nothing for me to try and make better because everything is wonderful. The problem is that I need a challenge. I need something that I can work on and show myself that I am successful at something. When everything is going great, I have nothing to focus a goal on. It is all about goals. I have now started doing big projects that last a while and is very complex. The last one I did was actually build a chair. My hubby looked at me like I was crazy but I felt that I was involved with something. I didn't finish it quickly because I put it aside as other things needed my attention but everytime I needed to have a goal for myself I would start back on the project. It was neat to look at the ongoing progress. Now it has been built and I'm very proud of my handywork (and so is hubby :) ) Can't wait to think of another one. I would suggest to go to an arts and crafts shop to find something to start on.
Take care

I can deal with crohns thing,I also have crohns,oa,ra,sojerens disease.I also have depession.I take 100mg's of Zoloft and Klonopin 0.5mg twice a day.

I have found that doing crafts takes my mind off of alot of my problems.It is theraputic.I not to long ago went off of my meds Zoloft and my Klonopin and boy was that mistake.I got very depressed (was pretty low)and I was to the point that some one could look at me and I bit there head off.I new when I started doing that it was time for me to get back on my meds.(Iwant make that mistake again.

I have found if I stay bussy my mind doesn't wounder as much.Alway's Rosie is right when she said that you need to some help because like she said you do not want to start going down that spiral likw alway's Rosie said it get's harder and harder to reach out to others.I hope that yoyu get to feeling better.
