Hello Everyone,
I am a new member and really excited to be starting this. I was dx with Crohn's in 2001 at age 21. I believe I was in denial until my son was born in 2005. I am slowly learning to deal with two young children, son, 3 and daughter, 6 months, working full time, and CD. I recently diagnosed myself with severe anxiety and depression. My pcp said I could double my current dose of 10 mg lexapro. I love relating to so many people. I have felt alone for so long and now I have new friends to relate to. I look forward to reading and learning more about all of you. Thanks for your posts and I am sorry this is so long. I am quite the talker.

Welcome to this forum. I think I'm a little addicted to this site, but I truly believe I could not have coped with my new diagnosis of Crohn's without all of the amazingly supportive and informative people here. It is my favorite place to be in the middle of the night when I can't sleep!!!!!

Hello, and welcome to the forum.  I just wanted to tell you that you will be OK, I am also a mother of two beautiful girls 12 and 8 years old, and I also work full time.  I have CD since 1999, and I know it's not easy to deal with your illness while raising two kids and working, but don't worry, just take it day by day, and enjoy your life to the fullest.
