i am a nursing student who has been diagnoised with interstital cystits. up until recently my condition has been under control without medication (although i wouldn't consider the amount i void to be "normal") recently i have been experiencing the worst flare i have ever had. this wouldn't be so bad if i could stay at home, but i took a summer internship to work at a hospital in the area as a cna. i love my job but i am worried that i will not have access to the bathroom when needed. (i already had one really close call). so my question is, should i inform my nurse manager of my disability and request a reasonable accomidation to use the rest room when needed? and if so, how exactly do i go about doing this? my other question is, is it possible to be a nurse who has bladder flares? this recent flare has gotten me worried that i may not be able to work as a nurse. any support would be greatly appreciated since i am feeling pretty down right now.
