My husband finally was offered a job after being off for 7 months! It's a terrific job and they actually found him...it wasn't one of the hundreds of jobs he applied for! He had his resume on a job search site, and apparently the HR dept. can put in certain key words...well they did and his resume popped up. So all is good! I'm so amazed at how well he kept his spirit up; he is an amazing person...I know...a little bit of mushy there, but hey I'm really proud of him. ;-)

Yay! :)
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Eased for ~3 weeks in December, possibly b/c of probiotic use?
Returned in January 2009 (with a vengeance), diagnosed with pancolitis on January 30.
Currently taking Asacol (400mg 4 pills 3x daily), Rowasa nightly, Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).

Ha, we were beginning to wonder the same thing too, Ack. He actually had a spreadsheet of all the jobs he applied for and to which companies. Frustrating to say the least!
