Disability

Why have they not approved IBS for disability? I worked all my life and would like to work again but I have not been able to keep working due to IBS issues.

  1. I wish I had the answer to that. Hopefully it will change in the future. -Elizabeth (team member)

    1. I applied years ago, went through the whole thing, denial, appeal with lawyer. Had multiple doctors notes saying that I couldn't work a full time job and would need the freedom to take off when needed on a part time job. They still denied me. It's defintely not fair. I haven't worked since 2017 🙁 I now have a new diagnosis of ulcerative colitis so I may try again, but still likely to fail. So sorry!

      1. I have seen it on forms for jobs, so maybe they've added it. That would be a helpful step! Cheers, Michaela (irritablebowelsyndrome.net Team Member)
