Very exciting! I stayed in an Embassy Suites for eight weeks once for a trial, and it was the greatest adventure. I could write a book about
all the interesting people I met at the nightly happy hour. It still makes me smile to think about
it. And I had a microwave and fridge, and ate a good breakfast every morning. It was easy. I even moved my excercise bike there (it was near NYC, and lived near DC, five hour drive). And my room was cleaned every day!!
I have never found it necessary to tell an employer about
my UC, except the one I had when I was first diagnosed/flared and missed two weeks of work. I believe there are too many downsides to an employer thinking you are sickly.
Trust your instincts! I'm a little jealous!!
49 year old female attorney, diagnosed UC/pancolitis 1985, no surgery but much suffering.
Asacol/5ASA 6x400 mg maintenance for 20+ years; use prednisone & Rowasa for flares.
August 2008 sought care of naturopathic doctor. Food sensitivity test showed gluten, other intolerances; started diet without gluten, soy, dairy, tomato etc. Replete probiotic first, now Forte pills.
Achieved remission for the first time in many, many years!? Seemed so, but colonoscopy Oct. 6 proved not so, heavy inflammation in ascending colon & will be using Rowasa again. But I AM better.
