Ironic. You are TOO serious about your job. Relax, take it easy and don't worry too much. Those people are on death's door anyways, so what if you screw up and they clock out a few days early?

Nah, the boss will register that as sexual harassment. Stomach ulcers are not visible through the skin, lol, so it renders the action useless.

kcrnpl, How's anyone going to know if she screws up? It's not like anyone expected a different outcome -- the timing might be a bit unexpected, but what can you expect when they pay the staff so handsomely? CTFD, both you and the OP.

Clearly, you're a doctor. *For all those intellectually challenged - please make note of the sarcasm*. I have a stomach ulcer. It's brought on by stress. You're a moron. Chin up OP. Explain the situation, agree to the drug test, and show your boss your medical certificate. Any further stress will aggravate it and make things worse.

The general consensus these days is that most ulcers are caused by H. pylori bacterial infection. I had one and had to undergo a round of heavy antibiotics to get rid of it. From WebMD.com: No single cause has been found for ulcers. However, it is now clear that an ulcer is the end result of an imbalance between digestive fluids in the stomach and duodenum. Ulcers can be caused by: * Infection with a type of bacteria called Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) * Use of painkillers called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as aspirin, naproxen (Aleve, Anaprox, Naprosyn, and others), ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil, Midol, and others), and many others available by prescription. Even aspirin coated with a special substance can still cause ulcers. * Excess acid production from gastrinomas, tumors of the acid producing cells of the stomach that increases acid output; seen in Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.

Actually, the guys who discovered it was mostly due to a bacterium, Barry J. Marshall and J. Robin Warren, won the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2005...

All of you are correct. Stomach ulcers are in fact caused by a bacteria. A bacteria that approximately 75% of the worlds population already has, but stress causes the protective lining in your stomach to weaken. Therefore that bacteria can cause a stomach ulcer.

Not *quite*. Stress has a noticeable, albeit relatively small, effect on the immune system which can exacerbate existent issues. As such, stress contributes to, but in no way causes, both ulcers and diminishing of stomach lining.

You would imagine that taking the simplest, most logical, most effective route would be an easy decision. Somehow, the OP feels it's necessary to make things complicated. She wants a bigger ulcer.
