Hi all
It has been a while since I posted, I'm weeks from a divorce because my claims she does not have a depression problem resulting from crohn's. Does anyone else feel they do not suffer from depressionconfused

Keepinghope, my 23 year old son has Crohns and won't admit he's depressed. I don't know why though. I know he's depressed because I've gone through a deep depression several times, so I know what it looks like.

Maybe its the mediation causing the depression. I don't suffer from depression, but maybe some patients do until they learn to accept their illness and its limitations.

Take care,

hi, keepinghope, I,m joy 47 I,ve had crohns for 30 years. Ive suffered depression on and off thru that time. Now learning all I can of my disease. I read that people with crohns can have clinical depression. I dont have it now, but I also know what to look for if it tries to sneak back. I find when its active(crohns) is when it used to take hold. Also at a time in my life I was on a type of antidepressant it was for ocd too. I know now I only needed something for depression. And you can still have depression even on a med for it. But she should not deceive herself it is real and it hurts.

Hi all
She is on no med since a resection 1 year ago, she has had 2 outside relationships since being diagnosed 5 years ago, now she is convincing teenage daughters its ok for her to sleep with other men that she is divorcing me not the kids. She had the depression problem before the crohn's flared up. She lets on to be religious but she will walk out of church and go straight to where she should not be, even religious councilling could not break her habits. Doctors have been no support at all because he just tells her come and see me if you feel your flaring. Her main diet is Special K and salad every day. She has not put any weight on since resection.
 She is also late 40s and does not believe anything anyone says we have been married 20 years
Everyone says she is just going to have to pay down the road for her own stupiditymad
