• Welcome to Crohn's Forum, a support group for people with all forms of IBD. While this community is not a substitute for doctor's advice and we cannot treat or diagnose, we find being able to communicate with others who have IBD is invaluable as we navigate our struggles and celebrate our successes. We invite you to join us.


I am taking entocort and it is helping a lot. But it is making very anxious and depressed. Was already depressed from the 6 weeks of physical pain.
My boyfriend of 7 years just broke up with me. Telling me I make him unhappy when im sick, and even more unhappy when im well.
I feel so alone. My father which used to be my support, passed away last year.
I lost my first spouse to luchemia. Found someone else 5 years later.
Then we had trouble conceiving.
After 10 years of infertilty treatment, finally were rewarded with the birth of a healthy baby.
Only to loose my spouse 3 months later from heart attack.
I have a beautiful child, which looks exactely like him.
I will speak to my dr to see if there is any anxiety medicine that my body would tolerate.
Most of the anti depressant give me flares or lower my blood level too much.
Well it feels good to write.
Feel so so alone[emoji27]
