Hi, I'm new here, but see that this is a good place to get info, and just maybe talk about
some of the issues that come with UC. I am 22, not really in college, and lately my job (just a retail job) has gotten much more difficult because of my UC. I had a sigmoidoscopy done about
two weeks ago, and was diagnosed then. They have me on sulfasalazine (my GI said it was cheaper, but now that I have better health insurance I may can get "better" medicine he said), which helped a little, but its still a problem. I may be moving back in with my parents soon, at least until I can get this under control.
I guess my question is what kind of jobs do people with UC tend to get? My job is a nightmare situation as I do not have a bathroom close-by, and I am outside/physical labor all the time. Working with this seems so hard, my stomach has been hurting a good bit, and I've felt tired just in general, probably from going to the bathroom so much. I may be in a "flare" I guess, I'm still not quite sure about
all the terms. Any general advice would be nice. I have been quite stressed about
the whole situation, which probably isn't helping. Thanks ahead of time for any helpful replies!
