Thanks everyone for your support and suggestions. I seemed to be suffering from A CD symptom on both of my interviews for this job. (fissure one time then the other i was in pain )
 
It is just the job I wanted with a 10% pay increase and a yearly bonus. I told my hubby it is about time I had something good happen. I deserve it, the last year has been bad news over and over again.
 
Plus my current job makes it so hard to deal with my CD, way too much stress and horrible pay.
 
thanks for letting me brag a bit. I just had to share here, I would have had a hard time if I did not come here and ask ?'s

I was just going to ask how the job interview went! Woohoo! So happy for you.

Does your new employer know about your Crohns? Just curious if you chose to tell them or not.

It is nice to have good news once in a while. 10% pay raise is awesome!

Thanks!!!!
Nanners, the new employer does not know yet. I will be working in HR so I would like to get there and see how they are. From the interview I have a feeling they will be great about it. This is a nice place to work.

Very nice!
It's easy to grin, when your ship comes in...and you've got the stock market beat.  But the man worthwhile, is the man who can smile, when his shorts are too tight in the seat.
