I feel the same way, so you are not alone. I had also ALWAYS been a great employee, always early, never sick, always putting in 110%, and then Crohn's...
It just sucks!
I just recently got a new permanant Job after I got fired a while back for being sick. Before I got this job I actually got a temporary job with a Hospital, I got it more because I was desperate for anything I could get, But it REALLY helped with getting me back into a schedule and working. Maybe you could find something temporary, so that if you aren't really ready to get back working, it's not really going to hurt anything, since it's just a Temp job. Also, the 3-7 job thing actually sounds pretty awesome, It can gradually get you back into things, and if It doesn't work out, just a guess here but I don't think your mom will really take it personally, I mean she knows your sick, and at least you tried.
The going out in public thing, I can't really give you any advice on since I'm having problems with that myself. I recently had problems. I've been keeping to myself at home, and hadn't been going out and doing anything in probably about a year, and the first night I try, I didn't do so good...SO I'm waiting again a little while before I go out and be social again :(
It sucks being a homebody as young as us :/
