Back when I was still a stay at home mom but needing to look for work, I lamented who would ever hire me (person who spends so much time in the bathroom) to my colon surgeon. She sighed, she smiled and said - work here, we'd hire you, in fact many of us have colon issues!
I didn't want to work for the people who had seen my naked rear end high in the air (for some reason my colon doc likes this one table, almost like a reverse stirrup type contraption a GYN uses, she can see better for doing digital exams she says)......
So of course I didn't apply there but I have looked at her staff in a different light now. LOL Trying to guess who has a situation similar to my own.
I ended up working part time in a middle school cafeteria. The pace is fast, loud and we never have time to eat the food we prepare. It's worked out well, I work mid-day hours, and can fart all day long (no one can hear it over the students, ovens, exhaust fans, milk coolers, going....).
The other set up that would ideal for this situation would be to work for a Vet. There'd be so many smells and dog/cat hair, that anything I smelled like would get blended into the work atmosphere.
But I do hear you.......it's hard if you have a boss who's not understanding. Mine does. I've had to call in sick a few times but only twice in 3 years. I'd told her I may have to run the bathroom and she says - go ahead, do what you have to. I think just hearing those understanding words puts my GI tract at ease and I never feel stressed out about my colon at work.
Now I had to work 40 hours a week, then it would be a whole other story.....I do not know what I'd do then. Probably drop down to one meal a day. And even then, I'd be dragging, with low energy.
