  • Career Advice (Incontinence and I.C.)

    I wanted to ask opinions on here, since this group is very helpful. I have been working retail 11 years but my bladder seems to be getting worse over time. I have some Interstital Cystitis symptoms which make working hard but I am also having incontinence issues now and I highly doubt the doctor can help without another bladder surgery. Has anyone found it useful to put it on their application, or telling their employer during interview, or is it best to hide/wait it out? It borders on a bit unethical to me to hide it, however companies discriminating isn't ethical either. Thank you.

    You do not have to reveal health information, but it can be a matter of how you feel personal about it. If your health will allow you to perform the job I don't see any reason to tell anyone about incontinence issues. If it's a stress incontinence thing, you might want to discuss it with your doctor. I had one of those "sneezes and peezes" problems and it was a simple surgical procedure to stop it.

    Sending well wishes,
    Stay safe
