I'm supposed to start Humira on in a week. I'm excited cause I hear a lot of good feedback on the effects, but I have to admit at the same time I'm skeptical. I have switched meds constantly for the past year (Ive been in a flare for over a year now). Every time I switch I think it will be the miracle drug that will help me get through the day, but I'm always let down...
In case this Humira thing doesnt work, I guess my question is whether people with CD eventually end up on disability? Does anyone know the % of people with CD who are on disability? If this doesnt work, I am terrified of losing my job or having to give it up - I love my work. But I also can't say I'm being very effective anymore - more than 10 bathroom visits a day and pain all the time... My boss is understanding but I always feel so guilty running out of meetings or going home cause I had an 'accident'.
My other question is more optimistic: If the Humira does work, and I decide to start job searching (I want to advance my career) do I have to tell my next employer about CD? Is CD considered a disability?
Hope you are all feeling better today than yesterday!
