Hello everyone. I have an extremely debilitating dysenteric PI IBS. I have been all across the country for tests and consultations with professors and professionals and my diagnosis is IBS.
My struggles are daily and i can eat maybe 10 or 11 foods, i can barely socialise or leave the house for long periods of time due to very bad nausia and a feeling of weekness ( i do believe i have chronic fatigue as well due to the IBS).
Im an electrician by trade but i cant do my job because its to demanding on my body, instead i run a little business from home and i frequently go weeks without earning any money. Im 32 years old and when i got ill 3 years ago i had to sell my home and move in with my mother who is pretty much supporting me.
I know IBS has a very broad spectrum of sufferers and some people can work and go on holiday and live normal lives, and others...cant.
Dose anyone out there get any financial disability or incapacity help / benefits ?
What is the governments view on IBS as a disability ?
