Mental Effects of Crohn's Research

Hi all! I'm a college student with Crohn's doing research on the mental consequences of chronic illness. I'm concentrating on Crohn's patients in my research because it's personal to me. There've been periods of time since I was diagnosed where I look back and am certain I had severe depression; I wouldn't leave the house often, slept all day, was angry and irritable... I know that many people feel isolated and without help when they're sick. I'd really appreciate it if everyone could help me out and fill out my survey, it shouldn't take longer than a minute or two. All responses are obviously confidential. Thanks in advance to everyone who helps out!


BTW- I'm new here, I had an account a couple years back but couldn't remember the email I signed up with so I'm unsure on procedures for things like this. If this isn't allowed, mods feel free to take it down.
