Hi Julie! Also glad to hear you got some answers. I deal with anxiety too, it's for sure no fun.
I'm also an overweight Crohnie, I lost 10 pounds in one week when my flare started up. I feel the same way, it's nice to lose the weight, but not really like that! Then my MIL asks how I'm doing, and I told her about losing the weight, and how it just shows how bad of a flare I'm. She starts asking what's my secret and how she wants to lose weight. Oh how nice, this is a diesease, not a fun diet tip! Ugh!
Diagnosed with Crohn's Disease 2/06 after sever GI bleed. Has been suffering since 1998. History of rectal fistula and gallbladder removal. Currently taking Prednisone: tapered to 35 mg, Asacol, Questran, Toprol XL (for high blood pressure).
