Thanks for all your help and input. It's good to know that others suffer from depression with this illness. Well not good to know, but at least you know you are not alone. I suppose any chronic health issue, especially related to the intestinal tract, will lead to stress and anxiety. My oncologist is not sure about
the use of Remicade with breast cancer, so have to find out more about
that. Taking prednisone is no fun either. Thank goodness for Ambien time release pills. They give me a restful night's sleep, which I can't seem to get any other way. Sadly, that's the best part of my day. Not suicidal at all, just very down. Will definitely seek help if that becomes a problem.
