  • Corporate Job and IC


    Has anyone been managed to keep a corporate job (60-70 hours a week) with IC? I don't really have paid, just frequency and urgency. However, I am very uncomfortable and all I can think about most of the time is using the bathroom. Some days are worse than others.

    I am about to finish graduate school and landed my dream job, however it is in corporate america, and I'm terrified I won't be able to live out my dreams. Any positive stories would help me so much, I have become devastated by this.

    After my diagnosis, I was able to continue in a high stress position for twenty years before I took an early retirement. And I never had to take a day without pay --- accrued sick leave covered my appointments and procedures. It can take a while to find which treatment options work and which foods and drinks are a problem, but most of us do get there --- and most of us feel good most of the time.

    Congratulations on your success in graduate school and getting your dream job.

    Stay safe

      I would not miss out on the opportunity. Why not give it a try? I work a full time job, and I do have bad days but most days are manageable. I think once you find a good treatment you will be ok. Good Luck to you!
