cool I went to my therapist and she said its time for me to go in something..So I get to see the psychiatrist. The last time I was on something was years ago and there was a big law suet with it, I had no problems on it and it really helped me. I can't take zolof they tried that last time. But as I said its been a long time, so what is out there that they can put me on??? I know I need something right now all I want to do is cry. My family keeps looking at me funny. My husband is having a hard time dealing with me.. He told me to quit dwelling on my problems.. I said thats the problem. He deals with his problems so much different than I do, I just wish I could crawl in a hole and stay there..My regular doctor and I don't see eye to eye, and after what I told my therapist she said I have to get a new one. I don't disagree, Its just trying to find one..As I have before I have crohn's and I have a GI doctor and he even told me to get a new doctor..I live in a very small area and I'm having a hard time finding one..I'm not sure if its me or the bipolar but the thoughts of seeing my regular doctor almost make me sick..I was really sick Tue but I stayed at home its almost a fear, my stomach ties up in knots at the thought.. Of course my husband don't understand.. I want to go somewhere until they get something for me, to take these feelings away.. My therapist told me to call if I needed to talk before my next app, but I feel stupid I can't last a week. The crohn's is acting up to, I feel like my body is very upset with me..Over two years dealing with crohn's or I should say with the unknown, going to doctor after doctor, and test after test, before they called it crohn's..And I've found out I'm not really that strong..I hate not having control of my life..I hope it don't take to many tries to find something that will work.I just want to turn my brain off, I'm having a hard time sleeping. Sorry for the rant nono

I don't really have any advice for you. But I do know how you feel about your dh not understanding. i feel like we are moving apart again and I don't like it at all. So many times I have wished I could crawl into a hole and never come out. at the time I didn't know what was wrong with me and I thought it was normal to think that. now i know better. anyway, my thoughts are with you.

I'm really sorry to hear your husband isn't more understanding. You're right that people deal with their problems in very different ways and I don't think his way (just stop thinking about it) is very healthy. On the other hand, worrying yourself until you're literally sick isn't such a good plan either. Regardless of how scared you are, you definitely need a new doctor. For as often as you need to see the doctor, you can't ball up in fear every time you need to go -- that's just impractical. Even a small town must have at least one other doctor. You won't insult your doctor by switching. He's a professional, and they know people go for second opinions all the time. Even if he does get put out, you can't help that -- you need to take care of yourself first. I know it seems daunting, starting all over with a new doctor, but you can do it. You are stronger than you think. You're overwhelmed right now, but you are strong and you will get your feeling of control back.

I agree with Serafena. Your husband is not being caring when he tells you to get over your problem. You seem to be overwhelmed, right now and need to take care of yourself.

You should not feel guilty about switching docs, it's your right. If you are not getting the care you need with that doc, you should switch. It is a bit of a pain to switch, but it might also be for the best. Best Wishes!
