I usually don’t have to go in to work on a Monday. I have every other Monday off and I work at home on the alternate Mondays. Living with a chronic disease, that always has nasty surprises for me, I need to use my time off effectively. I love my job. I find it challenging and I have no intention quitting. A couple of times a year my doctor asks me why I continue to work. She says most of her patients with inflammatory bowel disease* do not work. So, my plan is to take it easy this weekend. I will stay home and hang out, watch tv and pet dogs.
*Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease are the two most common types of inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
