I told her I didn't want to be medicated for my depression
Why? You weren't on biologics for years and Humira has worked great for you. Why on earth wouldn't you try an antidepressant then?
I've had no choice to deal with my depression and suicidal feelings by myself (not even with the aid of a therapist, 'cos I can't afford one), because I've had as much luck with antidepressants as I have with Crohn's meds. I'm mad with ****ing envy some days when I see some people respond so well to the drugs that I never did, and I don't care how horrible a person that makes me seem. 'Cos I probably am a ****ing horrible person. Tired of this crap. Just had a bad night with a fever, and no idea where it came from. But yeah, surgery is a ****ing panacea, right? If ****ing only.
Thank **** for HW's automatic filters. It adds the asterisks so I don't ****ing have to.
Because I'm sick of every med out there that's "suppose" to help and ends up having crapty side effects, and if I can combat my depression and anxiety without meds then I'd rather do that then jump on the the bandwagon of swallowing every pill under the sun for every health issue....is there something wrong with wanting to use a better approach then meds all the time? Because the meditation and yoga have made a huge difference for me (which is the approach my therapist has taken with my depression and anxiety) if others want to pop pills for all their issues that's fine and their right to do so but that doesn't means it's the only option.
DX with Crohn's Disease in 1991 shortly after becoming ill. CD was affecting small and large bowel & anus (perianal crohn's skin tags) & rectum for first 2 yrs of becoming sick, CD remained constant in colon (Crohn's colitis) & anus with anal tags, intolerant to oral meds. Currently on Humira (Feb 2014) once a week and B12, Vitamin A and Omega's daily. In remission but trying to combat IBS D/C.
