The social isolation of chronic disease is tough to deal with. I hear ya. I'm a little younger (33) and haven't been on a date for years, can't eat at a restaurant, etc. It's made my social life pretty non-existent. It can certainly get you down.
Glad to hear the Remicade is working for you too! I was there with ya with the arthritis. I could barely shower and dress before the Remicade my arthritis had gotten so bad. Hang in there!
I've been on anti-depressants before and don't like them. Think long and hard before going on them. The withdral process for me was long and painful coming off of them. Never experienced anything like it before.
