I work full time in a human services program. My agency has been very flexible with me, even allowing me to work from home here and there as needed. For instance, Monday I get my Remi infusion, which will pretty much kill the morning. I usually take my laptop and work part of that time, then I'll come home and work from my recliner chair. I'll be able to work, but tired and will function better if I'm comfortable. My staff knows they can reach me by e-mail or cell phone, the e-mail things to me for review. It's been great, I've never had to miss more than a day or two once in a while due to my UC. (I must admit, though, for five years I went to work on a lot of days when I could barely lift my foot off the ground to take my next step.)
Moderate to severe left-sided UC (21 cm) diagnosed 2001.
Avascular necrosis in both shoulders is my "forever" gift from steroid therapy.
Colazal, Remicade, Nature's Way Primadophilus Reuteri. In remission since April, 2006.
