Do you class your IBD as a disability?
Chronic Memory Loss
Ulcerative Colitis (IBD) Inflammatory Bowel Disease
socially yeah. but it’s really hard to get disability benefits bc of my age so i honestly haven’t bothered to.
what about in a new job interview?
not during interviews, no. my fear is that they will not hire me because mine is really debilitating. i know it’s illegal for them to not hire me bc of that but i just don’t risk it.
I usually just tell them after i get hired.
Sorry you feel that way, but I completely understand. I'm in a flare atm and to be honest I wouldn't hire me with my track record. What do you work as atm if you don't mind me asking?
im in a flare rn myself. im actually not working rn bc of my UC and some mental issues. but i usually work in hospitality and catering bc they’re very flexible with hours.
