Infinite, I have to agree with Becoming Undone. Sometimes its just one day at a time. I do what I can on my good days, and rest as needed on the bad. I also developed anxiety related to my Crohns, and that could make things even worse at times, because when I was sick I would get more anxious, and would get bad diarrhea and nausea, and all the other stuff anxiety could bring. And that would make things worse, especially if already flaring. I went thru therapy, and with the help of the therapy and the occasional use of Xanax, I am now able to stop the anxiety in its tracks. If you are feeling overly stressed or anxious, I would suggest you talk to your family doc about how you are feeling, and I am sure they will help.
