Welcome to Crohn's Forum, a support group for people with all forms of IBD. While this community is not a substitute for doctor's advice and we cannot treat or diagnose, we find being able to communicate with others who have IBD is invaluable as we navigate our struggles and celebrate our successes. We invite you to join us.
So sorry to hear your news Creepy and Drew. Know exactly where you guys are coming from - I lost my job two years ago (pre-dx) because I was exhausted, had lost too much weight and looked so crap. It was so hard to take because I thought I was doing OK despite everything but I worked with customers and apparently some had commented about how sick I looked.
I could have fought it because of the discrimination but like I said I was exhausted and didn't have the energy.
I really hope you guys start to feel better and that somehow some good will come out of this. Thinking of you.
