Traveling and traffic stress me out too and I've noticed I'm much more relaxed about these since I've been on Cymbalta.
I hope you feel better too!

hi I, too am on cymbalta..and I, too also have crohns. I started taking cymbalta in feb. of this year and i absolutely love it. i had to start taking it cause i was on the verge of turning my truck off on some train tracks..it also helps me with my hip pain that i'm assuming is from the CD . what I like about it was I felt better after 3 days instead of a few weeks...i think i would have killed myself if i would have felt the way i was feeling for much longer.
good luck to you and continue to do well brenda
Brenda, You have been through so much, I am glad that Cymbalta is working well for you. I too am 33 yrs old and was sexually abused by my stepfather for many years as a small child. I dont have children and even though sometimes I get the feeling that I want one...I just have this very stong feeling that I cant supply the feelings towards a child that they require. I have made an appointment to have my tubes tied next week. However, I do have several illnesses, MS and an autonomic disorder that I know physicially I wouldnt be able to care for a child so this has helped in my decision...I guess but it is still a difficult one. Post-partum psychosis is a very nasty thing to have go through but I am wondering if some of your abusive issues played a part how you felt at that time. Did you go to counseling for these issues? Seeking treatment and realizing that you do have depression is a huge step and it is great that you took it. But the medication can only do so much. If you havent sought counseling before perhaps it would help some.
