I was wondering if IBS is considered a disability under the Family Leave Act? For the last 5 months I have been having daily IBS attacks. My boss prides himself in never missing a day of work in his life except for when he had his heart attack. He expects the same from his employees and reacts with disapproval whenever I call in sick. So therefore, I have been going into work after taking excessive amounts of donnatal and immodium in order to just get through the day. Has anyone else had experiences with employers good or bad regarding their understanding of IBS? Has anyone been able to utilize the Family Leave Act to take time to heal and recover from an attack of IBS?Thanks,Larry
