Good choice! Optimizing for quality of life is always the right answer ... and less driving will really help with that.

Congrats Sasquatch! A change, no matter how small adds up over a year. Living within your means on a small pay cut is one key to success. You can do it. My man changed jobs (and with my encouragement), 7 or more times in 3 years landing on one he stayed with for the rest of his life. Being happy with what you do for work is so important. I hope this is a good change for you, let us know how it goes. ;D.

Thanks all, I'm super excited about the change.  These are the kinds of stories we need to hear as ostomates.  I hope this is able to reach some people and show them there isn't anything that's not possible with an ostomy.

UC since 2002, subtotal colectomy Dec. 2016, proctolectomy Nov. 2018.

New job will start on June 24th.  Had to take a little of a pay cut, but not much really.  The position is an inventory coordinator, and my commute will shrink to about 12 minutes.  just thought I'd let all of you know.

Awesome! Congrats!! 

I think anyone who was commuting as long as you were would not think twice about taking a small pay cut to save time, money, health, and their sanity! Best of luck at your new job!👍 

Just your friendly neighborhood ostomate.
