Hey prof, as you know I too have Crohn's. I did not take any anti-d meds until 2 years ago. I have not take Prozac, but I can tell you that the anti-d meds I have taken have helped me alot. I have taken meds in the same classification as Prozac. At first I feel like the cloud of doom no longer continued to follow me around. After a period of time I actually started to feel some joy in my life and who I am. If you have read about any of the problems I have going on at home you know that to feel any joy at all while in a storm is a miracle in itself. I still have my days when dealing with CD but those are much shorter periods of time and I am often able to find the source of my anger, depression, and sulliness.
Good luck in finding your way through this storm. The best thing I can tell you is that I no longer feel like a victim of CD. I am who I am and just a person with CD, not defined by it. For 35 years I felt the DD controlled me and now know that there are parts of life that have changed because if the DD but I am in control on how I face it and what I do with it. My email link is active so if you ever need to talk, I am here.
