Does Anyone Get Disability Money Because They Have IBS?

Does Anyone Get Disability Money Because They Have IBS?

Just wondering if anyone gets disability money for IBS. Why is it not classed as a disability? It stops me from doing things and i am worried when i do get a job it is going to get in the way especially when i have to phone in sick most days because i can't leave the toilet

Not here in Ireland you don't. It's classed as an invisible disease and therefore people with it are suppose to b able to go to work. Docs here say it can b kept under control with proper serious diet and proper exercise. Clearly them docs don't suffer with it

I have heard you can opt out of jury duty for having IBS. I don't know if this is true or not it is just what I have heard.
