AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH......... I just needed to get that out. I have found that stress sends my gut turning. So today I have been feeling pretty crappy all day. I go to work at 2 and just start feeling worse. Well about 530 I caught a thief at the store I work at which sent my adrenaline up. After I came down from my adrenaline high I hit me aain just 10times worse, on top of the cramping I got the feeling of If I went to the bathroom I could throw up with no problem. So I decided to take off cause I was being no use at that point. Well the gm leaves me with a guilt trip, he did not come out and say it but he gave me the impression that he though I was just playing the crohns card to get out early. This just makes me feel worse and makes my stress go up even more!!!

Oh I just needed to vent.

Throw a little concoction of E. coli, shigella, and rotavirus together and give it to your general manager in a cupcake. That'll teach him.

Okay, that might be a little extreme.

Hang in there dude!

Just try to ignore it. Heck, I feel guilty anytime I've had to leave work. Double heck, my last crappy job my Manager tried to guilt trip me for calling in because I had a serious post kiidney stent hemmoraghe (sic) the night ( & early morning) before. She called me at home 3-4 times. I just didn't pick up the phone. I mean what part of serious complication don't you understand here? I was still passing bloodclots too at the time..
People can be such fools at times..

I am self-employed and I even feel guilty when I have to leave work. I think it's a sign of your dedication. This IS a lousy disease. Hang in there and be kind to yourself!

aw Matthew so pessimistic... what if she was calling to see if you were ok? to see if you needed chicken soup lol!! Or she was calling to see if you were actually home. That one pisses me off. My high school used to call to see if you were really "home sick." They either woke me up which really pissed me off, or caught me while I was out at the doctors or pharmacy. Then I would hear "we called and you werent there." Yeah, I was at the doctors dummy!!! Im just kidding Matthew I am sure you know your manager better than I but I like to be fatally optimistic sometimes.

Stress does the same to me - the best thing i have ever done was start taking xanax 1mg at night and when needed 1mg xtended during day - has had the most amazing effects on the crohns........ has helped my gut more then anything! now able to stay in remission easier - let the stress over take me and I'll flare red hot!
 May God Bless and keep you in his care.

I have to wonder if sometimes it isn't us "Crohnies" that put the guilt trip on ourselves when we have to miss work. I feel terrible guilt even though my boss is awesome and never complains when I have to leave early or call out sick. But I still feel so bad that I talk myself into believing that she thinks I'm faking sick...ridiculous isn't it? I recognize that I do that to myself with no help from outside sources...haha. So I tell myself to stop feeling guilty and beating myself up...I am sick otherwise I would gladly be at work, all of us here have a serious disease which takes a heavier toll on our bodies than I ever would have ever imagined. Maybe some supervisors don't understand CD and what it does to a body but there is actually really great information on the web about how to talk to your boss about this disease, I found that helps so much now that my boss understands about my illness.
Hang in there and try not to feel guilty, that only adds to your misery :)
Take care all and have a great new year!
