I have been at the same job since I was dx'd for over 8 years, I have had to take a few unplanned days off here and there for my UC, but no more so than anyone else does for their sick days and kids sick days. I have not had to take any extended time off, so I don't know how that would go, I can technically work from home though and my last boss was totally understanding letting know that I could work from home whenever I need to. My new boss I don't think would be as understanding but if I get my job done then I don't think it really matters. In the past two years I have gone through 3 direct reports and still have like 6 dotted line bosses. However, the people at my co are great but not super healthy, it seems a lot of people have needed to take time off here and there for illness/family related illness things and co. has been very good.
I do service sales/mktg for scientific instrumentation. I pretty much like my job.
