There have definitely been times it has effected my work or made me not be able to work. This was all before I even knew I was celiac though and was still eating gluten every day and being deathly ill.

The job I have now as a teaching assistant ijs perfectly suited for me. If I have any intestinal flareups, I can excuse myself and tend to them. However, there are without a doubt, some jobs I could never hold such as assembly line worker, cashier in a busy store, highway worker, etc. I must have a job where I can hit the restoom if necessary. They did put me on a special needs bus for a short time but I started having problems and feeling ill and had to request to be taken off that duty. The ride was 1 1/2-2 hrs. long out throught the country where there were no public restrooms. Thank goodness my principal was so understanding. I was in line to check out a famous chain store one time, and the cashier was begging the supervisor to let her go toe restroom, and the supervisor refused. I thought this was absolutely horrible. (If there are alot of mistakes in this post, I apologize....I'm only wearing one contact!) :huh:

Couldn't work for 10 weeks and after that only half time for a while. If my job had been more a physical one, it would have been even longer.

I've been off work for 3 months after suffering seizures and extreme fatigue, dizziness, etc.

I was only diagnosed earlier this month and am hoping to go back to work in August.

I am slowly starting to feel better, but it has been a very rough journey. I've basically been sick for 7 months with no reprieve and it took them 6 months to figure out why.

Thankfully we've figured it out and I can hopefully start to get better. I hope you do as well.

Just wanting to know if anyone has been feeling rough like me.
