I am usually over on the Ulcerative Colitis board, but thought I'd post here and get some advice. I have been sick with U/C for just over a year, although I'm doing ok and seem to be in remission right now, I have been feeling emotionally like crap and like I'm in a bad mood, all day, just about every day.
I have a pretty good life financially, but I feel that none of it matters right now. I feel like I want to be alone, as in all by myself and I just don't have the opportunity to do that. I feel that I am bombarded with things right now as I have a lot going on in my life... I need a break and I don't know how to tell my husband. I have been going to counseling now for about 3 months with a Christian counselor, but I'm still feeling pretty rotten for the most part. Is feeling like you want to be alone, being in a BAD mood all almost daily, feeling very very irratable.. could those be signs of depression? I sleep ok most nights I guess, but feel tired during the day still...
I just don't know what's going on with me and it's bugging the crap out of me......
