Hello everyone. Thank you for making me feel so welcome here. I am a 63 year old ( who cannot believe I am 63) I still shop at Next etc etc lol. I have Crohns. I had surgery in 2010. I am married and lost my only son in 2009 aged 37. I have always been an anxious person but like most people. I want to laugh and make others laugh and help when and however I can. Laughter is good for us but is easier said than done. So much heartache and pain sometimes and yet.... we have to still try. We need to. The consequences of giving up are unspeakable. For a long time after losing my son. I felt nothing. No anxiety. No anything really. Just numb. Now,, six years later. It is back with a vengeance. I am hoping to simply talk and share my feelings with others on here. Thank you for listening. If any of you have any experiences that you would not mind sharing with me. Especially about anxiety. I would be most grateful for any help or input.
