Well for those of you who have followed my saga at work,  know some of the physical price paid working in the toxic environment over the past 1 1/2 years. In August of 2007 there was no sign of active disease in interography, colonsocopy, and endoscopy. Yesterday I received a call from my GI's nurse and those same test show moderate inflamation from my esauphagus (sp) through my colon. I was wondering why I didn't feel well, duh! Still waiting on my employer's response to my EEOC charge of discrimination. EEOC said I probably would not hear anything until July. Only the pace of government considers that a quick turn - around time. March 13 to July 13. Hopefully going on medical retirement and removing myself from the stress of he!! to work in will allow my body to get back to inactive disease. If not, when this mess goes to trial or settlement, I will ask how do you compensate for the loss in quality of life caused by inflamming my disease becasue of a hostile work environment? There is no price worth that but I will ask for alot. Won't make a difference unless it cost them money my attorney says. Well thanks for letting me vent. Hope I didn't ramble too badly. Hugs to all.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.

Randy, I am so sorry that your disease has once more reared its nasty head. Hopefully you can get it to settle down. It took over 3 years for the NLRB to rule on my claim and get the hospital where I had worked to pay me. Hang in there ~~ thinking about you.

Thanks for the update Randy, only sorry to hear that the evil woman has caused so much stress that your Crohns is active again. Will definetly keep you in my prayers that you get the Crohns under control quickly and that your case gets settled soon too.

So sorry work stress has been so awful!! I hope you get the settlement you deserve!!!
I have a stressful environment and I think it was the main reason for my recent flare up. I was doing just fine until work got stressful and hard to handle. I can relate some on that.
I hope you are feeling better soon!
