Thanks Judilyn and Shelly. I will research the state vocational rehab program. Shelly, my boss's daughter has been diagnosed with Crohn's since I started working there (I referred to her to my GI and he diagnosed her immediately) so she is very understanding. But, I work for a university so they have official processes for everything, including requesting a reasonable accomodation. I want to make sure I cover my butt because my boss's boss is in the process of laying off about 7 people in my office and, while I'm not on the list yet, I don't want to do anything to make him think I am underperforming (my annual eval was great though, so I think I'm covered for a little while at least).
I ended up raising my chair as high as it could go to help my knees and have just raised everything on my desk with phone books for the time being (my desk is attached to a cube, so I don't think they can raise it). You are right about the breaks and getting some exercise throughout the day...I am bad about not taking my paid 15 minute breaks but really need to start doing that and get out of my chair periodically.
Shelly, does the methotrexate help you? I'm getting ready to start it with my humira, I think, because the sulfasalazine raised my liver enzymes and I just had to stop that one (it wasn't helping anyway). Thanks so much! Although I'm sorry for you that you are a lot like me, I'm very glad to have someone who understands. =)
Crohn's Disease, Acid Reflux/Gastritis, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Endometriosis, Arthritis, Depression/Anxiety. Too many meds to list them all. =)
