I am seeking some advice on how best to proceed with a good problem that I have.I am a 45 year old male, married with children, and have had IBS-D for over 18 years now. Even as a child, I remember always having a sensitive stomach. I want to stress that I have IBS, it does not have me. I have learned what I can and cannot do, but more importantly, WHEN I can and cannot do things. Like everyone else that has IBS, it is extremely stressful to travel away from home and the comforts of having a bathroom nearby, or to do something new because of the fear of the unknown. I decided early on that I would not let this thing ruin my life, so most would surprised to hear that I travel weekly, mostly by commercial airlines (this is a completely different post all by itself). You might catch me at the casino's in Las Vegas this week, and at the beaches in the Bahama's next week. Most would be surprised to hear that despite having IBS, I travel extensively for my job as a Sales Executive. I watch my diet when traveling (no greasy fatty foods, very little caffeine, small portions, etc.), take 8-12 immodiums per day, and occasionally take some Pepto-Bismol to help calm the rest of the things down. However, most importantly, I control when and where I eat, sometimes going 12-24 hours without eating until I reach a safe haven, typically a hotel. Obviously there is entertaining of clients, lunches, dinners, etc., so I always have to try and control how far from the client's office we go to eat, so as to not get caught in an uncomfortable situation. I most often prefer to do dinner's so that everyone drives separately to the restaurant and then leaves separately to go home (I am more comfortable driving alone in the event an emergency comes up that requires me to make a quick pit stop, as it is much less embarrassing than having to tell someone riding with you that you have to stop). I normally tell my clients that I have extreme food allergies to things such as Gluten and dairy, and then just order something small like a salad, claiming that it is nearly impossible to find foods that don't contain gluten or dairy. I find this much less embarrassing than telling them I have IBS.I have been working for the same company now for 10+ years. Over the years, I have confided in a few colleagues that travel quite a bit with me, and they are very accomodating to my needs and help me out. Most of the time I travel alone, which is ideal. I have been pursued over the last 2-3 years by my company's main competitor who is trying to recruit me to join their company. To make a longer story shorter, they have put an offer in front of me that is so good, I would be a fool to not consider it. However, as most of you are painfully aware, the fear of the unknown is damned near paralyzing me. I honestly believe, money aside, that this is the right career move professionally, as the division I currently work for at my company is becoming less and less of a focus for my company. So, here is my questiono I have a candid conversation with the new company and tell them of my IBS, or do I keep it to myself? I will inevitably be traveling with new folks, and probably quite a bit initially. I don't want to hide it from them, because they will eventually catch wind of something unusual about me, but on the other hand, I am concerned with telling them up front as they might fear it would interfere with my job (I forgot to mention that during the 10+ years with my current employer, I have consistently kicked their butt and won over $8+ Million dollars in contracts during this time). So, this is my good problem. I have a good job and work with people that know about my IBS and am comfortable where I am at, but it will probably come to an end in 3-5 years. I have an excellent offer from a new company that could provide me employment for the next 10-15 years, yet they know nothing about my IBS. Let's assume for the moment that I have decided to accept their employment offer. My question is do I come clean with them and tell them of my IBS up front, or do I keep it to myself?
