I was diagnosed with Crohns at 18yo just over a year ago. I started my first job 8months later when I wasn't on long term treatment yet, we were still doing tests and deciding what to do next..
long story short, 6 months later I lost my job because apparently I was having to take out too much time to attend hospital appointments And the main thing that triggered this was the fact that I was admitted to hospital for a week at one point. something that was beyond my control...
okay, absence isn't helpful to anyone, but seriously...has anyone else experienced this? Or does anyone else think that it's discriminative? maybe I seem selfish but I was told that if anyone else was taking this much time out then the same would happen to them. But I'm the one living with a life long illness???
