I tried to go back and find my post but couldn't. I wanted to say thank you to all that responed. It's been crazy here with the kids getting out of school for the summer and all that comes with it.  I am feeling better. I'm not sure if you could say this a depression in the normal since. What ever that means?
Has anyone experienced this? I have a pretty positive addtitude[sp] yet things just seem bla bla. Nothing really all that bad here except a little strain on my marriage with everything. I've gotten used to that. My fatigue is bad but does that sprout from surgery,crohn's or depression? I see my counselor on Wensday. I'm not sure what the meeting will entail but I am hoping that this time we spend more time talking about coping with long chronic dieaese and pain coping instead of spending the whole time going over meds.
Like I said before I realize it take a month or so for the anti-depressants to fully kick in. One of the things I wonder is how this medicene is supposed to work because of the meds I am on is causing the depression. Is that a silly question?
I have never had a problem picking myself up [and will do it this time] but I just seem to be in a state of constant fatigue
Hope all is well and continue to smile [because it never hurts]

Hey RJ,  I am glad to see that things are at least a little better.  I found that when I got sick my depression worsened a great deal and there are alot of prescription medications that can aggravate depression and a worsening of symptoms.  But for the most part the antidepressants work well in combination with other medications.  You had a major surgery and have a major illness that your dealing with, this is probably the cause for the worsening of your depression.  When we dont feel physically well how can you feel mentally well.  My therapist has been great in that we do discuss often coping skills on dealing with my long term illness and how to combat the depression mixed with it.  I have found that if I make a list of things that I want to talk about before going it helps greatly and helps keep things on track.  Just an idea and perhaps someone will have another suggestion.  Try to take at least a few moments a day for yourself I know its easy to get lost in everything that goes on around you and trying to keep up.  Were here for you if you need us...take care
