So my boss who just fired me called me friday morning and wants me to come back. After thinking about it for several hours I decided to give it a try. I am now in a bad flare. I spent this morning having d and throwing up at the same time for hours. I need my doc and meds right now so I'm going to try the job again. My doc said if I'm not better in two weeks I may have to move up the scoping. And up the dang pred. I've only been on Imuran for a few weeks. Oh well, at least I have a job for now.

good and bad eh, I hope at least the job thing works out for ya and obviously hoping the sick as hell thing gets better for ya

I spend large portions of time, while Im on medical leave, trying to think of a job I can do and carry this disease

It would have to be very flexible hours, and with the severity of my symptoms it would almost have to be from home

there's options, just limited, trying to find something you want to do, and not forced to choose would be nice :)

Ask your boss what the terms of your re-employment are. Specifically, how much sick time/ Dr.s appt time you are allowed. Ask him if what is most important is that you get all your work done or that you are physically present in the office 8 hours. Ask if you can use flex time (come in late and stay later to compensate.) Then, GET IT ALL IN WRITING. That way unless you do not meet the terms of the agreement, they can not legally discharge you. You can even just take hand notes in the meeting where you discuss all this then say "let me just read this back to you to make sure you are on the same page." Then hand it to them to sign. OR better yet, check your local laws. In Maine you can record any conversation legally w/o consent, in Massachusetts the people being recorded have to be informed. If you can record you conversation during your rehire get it recorded!!!!!!! CYA (cover your kiester.)

26 Year old married female.  Diagnosed w/ CD 3 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD.  Currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day, hysociamine prn, nexium, and ortho evra.  Good times!!!

Hi Blue, I'm so sorry for all thats going on for you right now.
I have a question for you tho and want to relate an experiance of mine.... could stress and anxiety be causing you the out of control flares?
It did for me - majorly!
I knew the stress messed me up but I didn't realize just how much, like you I was on the pred and also on Imuran and couldn't get control - even upped the Imuran to 100mg, then GI did scope to check things..... he reported no signs of flare..... some divertiliculosis but no crohns - yet I still had the D and messed up system. Thought I was out of my head.....
Shortyly after that visit I started seeing a psychiatrist and after talking with him about the problems and all - what I was calling stress was really anxiety problems, started on xanax at bedtime and wow a major change fast - now the imuran keeps the crohns undercontrol and when I start to stress too much I can really tell, I'll start to 'flare' but it's the stress, if I don't get it undercontrol fast then I will hit a true crohns flare - eeeeekkkkk. I do also have a time release xanax I take on bad days to keep me calmed and not let the anxiety have it's toll. I will never be with out something to control the anxiety issues now too scary!
Hope this helps you and others, good luck on returning to the job, boss must need you thats a plus!
 May God Bless and keep you in his care.

Listen to Fitzy on this one. I am wondering if they have an HR department and they advised him that there could be an ADA issue with your firing. Even if it ADA would not have applied, employers are now so afraid of a lawsuit that they may have been concerned.

Keep posting! I am glad you sound a little more positive than your initial one. I hope you can keep a positive outlook in general and work with this employer as it sounded like you were happy with the job originally.

I'm riding on the escalator of life....

that is good news. I bet your old boss was told by someone he may have done something wrong and was at risk. I would follow fitzy's advice be sure you know what you are getting into.
