Well I went in today and met with ANOTHER family doc as mine is on vacation. She has put me on Xanax 0.25mg and said I can take that up to 3 times a day. She also gave me Prozac 10 mg. I took Prozac for depression about 15 years ago and it helped at that time and I don't remember any stomach upset. Of course, that was before any of my Crohns surgeries, so I will try it again. She wants me to try the Xanax for a few days to see how I do on it before starting on the Prozac. That way I will be able to see if one or the other agrees/disagrees with my stomach. I also have been given some time off from work to try to get myself back together and will also see a Pdoc next Weds. The time off alone should be really helpful, so I don't have to worry about that. Its also short term disability so I don't have to use my sick or vacation days. So hopefully things will start looking up for me soon. Thank you all for your support, especially you sweet Kitt, for your kindness and friendship.
