Irritable bowel syndrome is a horrible disease that showed up at any time it is a chronic illness that has so many different parts to it some days I can have loose bowels abdominal cramping feeling weak tired back pain headaches stomach bloating occasional vomiting these things can happen at any time this is the reason that I'm trying to start this petition that IBS is a very serious disease that affects people's lives I have spoke with plenty of people across the world and I'm on lots of irritable bowel syndrome support groups and I speak to people constantly who deal with this we are restricted to our homes and to our bathrooms we have no social lies because we cannot commit to any social engagements we don't have a lot of friends because we can't go out and do things that we want to do we make plans and irritable bowel syndrome pops up that's cancelled every bowel syndrome is a disease that pops up and flares out whenever it was once you can't be too anxious you can't be too happy can't be too excited it happens if you're depressed and once you get it you feel tired hopelessness embarrassed you can have accidents out in the street which I've had several of it also can affect your marriage in your support system because you feel like people around you don't really understand or if they do you feel like the disease is also something that is affecting them as well from them being able to do things and cater to you and sell it affects your whole family and your whole support system it it can last days weeks hours months there are some times where you you'll go a few days without an episode and you'll feel so happy and so great because you know you feel like you're alive again you can move but then just when you least expect it you can get another episode that a flare up and it could be more severe than the last one so the reason that I'm trying to do this petition to petition is to reach out to help everyone and get us some type of support we all try to get disability and they keep telling us that irritable bowel syndrome is not a disability actually it's not a payable disability which I feel it is if you can't go to work or keep a job due to this chronic disease I do not understand why this disease in it isn't being taken more seriously and isn't being seen as something that compares a person's life because this is what it does does I am not quite sure who I am exactly trying to address I am trying to adjust anyone the Congress disability Social Security Disability Act anyone who is willing to listen and to help me in this mission to get help is over a million people suffering from irritable bowel syndrome every day and it's something that goes overlooked when this is something that affects people's lives people are hiding in their houses people don't want to go out people losing weight people can't think they're depressed it's something that's very very in high demand to be reviewed so if anyone out there feels the same way please sign this petition so that we can take this as far as we need to be heard for our rights for #IBSmakeIBSadisability .
