I have only posted a few times on here, but I have to say that it is a nice relief in knowing that there is a forum like this. When people do not have UC, it is hard for them to understand were you are coming from. That one day you can be fine and the next, you can be in bed all day.
I was diagnosed in March 07 with UC. In May 2008, I became a vegitarin (for ethcial reasons) I take vitiams on a daily basis.
I find that on occasion, I am extremely exhausted to the point that it is hard to get out of bed. Anyone else have loss of energy??
Also, in the last few months I have been sick on and off and have missed more days off of work, then I would like to have. I am in love with my job and would hate to loose it. Even though my work knows that I have UC, I think it is hard to them to understand.
As for today, I called in sick because I was having blood in my stool and didn't feel well.
My question is One: Energy..anyone else have this problem on occassion and do you take anything for it? Second: I work tomorrow. I plan on going in. I want to talk to my boss and let her know how much I hate missing work, that I acknowledge the days that I have missed and how much it does frustates me when I do. I want to let her know that I truly love my job. Just don't know how to go about it or how to bring it up. My boss has never said anything to me..but I want her to know my dedication for the work that I do.
Anyone help me out. Has anyone ever had this conversation with their boss?
