As you well know, these siuations can become complex. Having something like Crohns is depressing, and depression may help to worsen Crohns, and to amplify its already unpleasant symptoms. SO treating the Depression can help overall. DO arrange, as soon as possible, to see a good local psychiatrist for an assessment, as well as a good dietician to plan a healthy diet that will suit your Crohns and you, without leading to distortion of your health by excessive weight-loss, etc. And CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) as a treatment approach, can really help you to learn better ways to adapt to life with a chronic disorder.
