Finding a job?

Mon, April 15, 2019 1:11 PM

I have had Crohns for over 17years and have gone through ups and downs with my disease. I have been home with my kids but now that my youngest is starting school in the fall I need to find a job. Unfortunately i am still going through a pretty bad remission and most jobs I wouldn’t be able to do because of frequency and stomach pains. What job do you do? Does anyone have any advice on part time jobs that may be easier for active Crohns patient?

Remission is when the disease goes away.  That should be a good thing I would think.  As far as jobs, I think pretty much anything where you have easy access to a bathroom would do.
