First off- I'm feeling better! Yesterday and so far today, anyway. The Asacol may be working! I may have stopped bleeding! Hooray! We'll see at my colonoscopy next week. I hope so, because I don't want to go on Remicade.
Anyway, I got really upset yesterday at work. My boss usurped me about something ethical. I'm not comfortable doing what she asked me to do. So, I started looking for another job. I found a really interesting one with a different department at the same place I'm working now. So, I applied. My bosses aren't going to like this. I recently told them that I planned to stay for at least another year. That changed yesterday. Well, I'm worried that they'll be p1$$ed and won't give me a good recommendation after working with them for almost 6 years. Also, I'm worried that they'll imply that I take a lot of sick days or something about my UC. (All in an effort to keep me working for them, which is a pretty lousy thing to do. I don't plan to leave them high and dry.) If I'm really going into remission, I may be able to handle that and tell the interviewer that I had a health concern, but that's resolved/managed now. But, if I'm still sick, I'm afraid that I won't get the job (that pays more and is closer to my house- I could ride my bike there!) I think I'm ready for a change. Also, this is stressful and I wonder if it'll throw me back into a flarre. Any thoughts?
