    A regular 9-5 job is not possible with my uncontrolled IBS. Is there any legitimate "work from home" job that can be a full means of support? I would like to take home at least $800-1000 a month. From one job or possibly 2 or 3 combined. Something other than a telemarketer, phone support...

    Hey All, I need some advice as I find myself in a predicament. I started my current job three years ago before my IBS kicked in. Within six months I was having chronic stomach issues (pain, cramps, etc). Tests ruled out IBD, celiacs, and many others so I was slapped with the IBS diagnosis. I...

    I have struggled to maintain a job for over 20 years.
