How do you all cope?  I didn't think my Crohn's was that bad until I was hospitalized and now I am in fear with every ache and pain that I am going to have to go back.  I start reading about all of the horrible things that can happen and I really start getting scared and don't know what to do.  I've never been a tough person and I feel like the easiest way out is to die and I know that's bad.  I'm just really depressed.

Don't think like that - it is hard - yes. No one here will dispute that with you. However, as and when you move forward with your Chrons - you will start to learn how to deal with it. In the mean time, I would suggest that perhaprs you visit your doctor and discuss your fears?

crybaybee, I know exactly how you are feeling because I was in the same place you were last March I spent a week in the hospital and the weeks following my discharge I felt week and just tired I couldnt understand how I was going to ever feel better again.  But slowly I did feel better and yes it did take time but when I was finaly able to eat something other than broth or jello I started to get some strength back..Over the summer I had terrible panic/anxiety attacks with every twinge of pain or the slightest feeling of nausea and I brought it to the attention of my doctors and they gave me medications for them all, Now I still have my good days and bad days but my best advice is what my GI doctor told my was NOT to read to much into this disease because for everyone it is different some meds that work for you dont work for others, and some have had many surgeries and you may never have to have one....I hope your days get better and you get some strength back..keep positive and like conor suggested speak with your doctor about how your feeling....

First of all stop reading about all the horrible things that may happen. Life is full of those. Just start doing what you can do and enjoy the moment. Deal with what you have to , when, you have to. We often smother ourselves with what could be and those things never happen . Meanwhile your life is slipping by and you arn't taking the time to enjoy the good things. Try living in the moment.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
