Like most I have to work....and luckily I have a job I enjoy....but yes....working and having CD is a hard combination.
the trick for me has been to always be prepared for the worst....I always have a change of clothes with me....I have my bag of meds in the car (antacids, imodium, gas-x) and I have TP in the glovebox. I travel a lot for my job, well over 75 flights a year...sometimes well over 100. I put 35 or 45 thousand miles a year on my car plus thousands more on rentals.....last year was bit tougher than most because I had to miss two weeks for a bowel rescetion.
the biggest help to me is working for a company that has a heart and shows great compassion for my health issues.
I know it is tough and there are great many mornings I don't feel I don't feel I have the strength to get out of bed, but I force myself because if I don't I know I will have a harder time dealing with the Crohns if I don't have a job or insurance.
i wish you good luck and hope you feel better soon.
