I started crying in front of our HR representative today. I just felt tied today, I think I may have over reacted. I went to the loo twice already this morning. That is not normal for me I only go once. I increased my pentasas and I haven’t really completely recover from this cold and this monthly thing. Now that I am home I am having no more urges. I cant believe I freaked out over going to the loo twice. I did think that I was going to be in the loo forever this morning. But now Im ok.
I guess I feel that the pentasas will stop working for me. I am scared of this. They have worked so well in the past and I have never needed a large amount of them. I feel my body is changing for the worst.
I told HR that I don’t understand my future. And that I could have a good remission but then again I may not, I just said I really don’t know about my health. Well I guess they know the truth and they need to. They really don’t know what IBD is so I had to explain it. Which made me cry even more.
I didn’t tell them this but I felt this last month that I could not keep up with my job. My diet is so expensive. If I go on disability I will not be able to afford good food. This worries me too.
