Chron’s Disease/Ulcerative Colitis and a career in IT

Not sure if this fits here, and sorry if it doesn’t!

Does anyone here have Crohn’s or UC? I’m newly diagnosed with Crohn’s, and still being treated so the fatigue, medications, hospital visits, and bathroom trips are still kicking me in the butt. I’ve been working on getting a degree in cybersecurity, but I’m worried that it’s a dead-end now since all tips for Crohn’s is to “lower stress”, and from what I’ve heard cybersecurity is a pretty stressful field.

I’m in a spot where I can switch which field I’m going in as I only have my AA in cybersecurity, so switching directions for my bachelor’s wouldn’t be the end of the world. Ideally, I’d like a field that has more work-from-home options, because I’m not sure how my Crohn’s reacts yet. Also, any advice on working with Crohn’s/UC is very much appreciated!
