Here’s Why Crohn’s & Ulcerative Colitis Patients Struggle With Mood Disorders

Have you been diagnosed with Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis? And also been diagnosed with a mood disorder? Depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder? Have you been struggling with the emotional component of this disease? Does it make it difficult for you to move into a healthier space, to remember to take your medications and to incorporate some of the lifestyle factors that you know you could change? But, because of your mental state, it’s a real struggle. 

This is a problem for many people with Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis. It’s a very important piece of the puzzle that needs to be addressed. It becomes very embarrassing for many people having to go through this. Many of the symptoms of this disease are very hard to deal with physically and psychologically. 

One of the most difficult things when you’re dealing with an illness is to also be dealing with an emotional component of that illness. Many people find it very difficult to motivate themselves to make those lifestyle changes that will help them. The reason for feeling so down on ourselves while having these diseases are from many things, two of the big reasons being:

  1. Vagus nerve 
  2. ¾ of our neurotransmitters are created in our gut

You become out of balance in the brain from these two areas being imbalanced themselves. That makes it difficult to think, to make good decisions, to cope, and to be happy. It becomes a negative downward spiral. I see it so often in Crohn’s patients. 

I wanted to bring this to light and bring this up as a conversation. This process needs to be intervened. 

If this is something that is going on with you and you need someone to talk to, I’m here to help. I understand what you’re going through. I’ve been there. The way it makes you feel should never be pushed aside.
