I am from the crohns forum,but I think I need help from people who know more about depression.
 I have been on a few kinds of depression meds over the past 8 years, now on wellbutrin xl, I went on them after I lost my best friend  ( my grandmother). The past week has been hell, it start sunday night, my legs started hurting real bad. That night I had restless legs and arms all night. When I got up my legs ached so bad, I just hurt all over. I cry all the time. I had to leave work yesterday because I felt like everyone was looking at me and it felt like the room was closing in on me. So I faked being sick so I could leave. I made it though the day today, but barely. As soon as I got home I started to cry. Can't seem to stop. My body aches so bad. I feel like I am going nuts.....My husband thinks I am just down from not eating much. But I think the not eating is part of it all. Just wondering what I should do. I don't want to go to work anymore.....I am afraid I will lose my job. I have already missed alot of time because of my crohns. The thought of leaving this house scares me.
 Thank you all for your time and listening to me.

Hi there,

Welcome to the depression forum. You are right there are many people here that do understand you and your depression. It sounds like you are also suffering anxiety along with the depression. And I think you are right when you say that it comes down to the crohns. I am so sorry by the way that you are dealing with so much right now.

It does seem as though the illnesses are causing you discomfort at work. Have you thought about signing up for disability. You might want to discuss that with your doctor.

All I know really is to advise you to seek counseling. You could use some guidance through this. I would try to relax as much as possible. Take things one day at a time. I always hear to take baby steps. Especially with anxiety. And it sounds like that is playing a huge part in your not being able to stay at work.

When I get restless legs I try to walk it off, often I feel like running as hard as I can. Is there any way you can do that or run in place? There are also medications for restless legs too. It almost sounds like the wellbutrin is too stimulating for you. You might need to add something like xanax. But this is just my opinion. I really would discuss this with your doctor.

I hoope that this helps some for you.

Hey there and welcome to the Depression Forum.  I believe we met in CD forum.

I agree with Karen, please see your physician as you may have some depression going on and some counseling may help you or perhaps your physician may want your on a med.  Also any time we have a change in our health pattern we should see our physician to be sure nothing physical has changed.

I am glad you felt comfortable coming here and please keep talking to us.

We are here to support you.
