I've been having too much stress at work, and have been feeling like I'm doing under par work due to the stress, and feeling really insecure. Each time seems like a bigger issue. I got very stressed this week, and now I'm going to the bathroom at odd times, but no blood, some diarreha though. I really don't want to go to work today, but my boss is on vacation, and if I call in due to my UC it may not work. This job I'm at is kinda broke. I'm just annoyed, and stressed, and just don't feel functionable. Kinda wished I wasn't in remission so I could get disability without a problem, but since I'm in remission I doubt that's going to work.
If you are having diarrhea, then you could be flaring slightly. Can you call in sick? It is flu season.
