Hello guys , newbie here.

I have been suffering with IBS - D for 7/8 years now with the past two years being severe. I work in a high stressed physical profession and unfortunately am at a stage where my illness is preventing me from doing my job and I have had to have several months off work in the past two years due to my illness.

I have seen many doctors / specialists over the years and tried every medication , diet change , lifestyle change that you can think off but unfortunately nothing has really made a difference. I am 41 years of age and have been advised to consider ill health retirement from my profession.

I would like to know if any of you guys have been medically retired from your profession due to severe IBS or attempted to and what your experiences were.

Thank you

I didn't have IBS, but at the age of 55, my right hand began to numb. And I worked as a loader, and after the progression of this disease, like you, I couldn't work at all for periods. In the end, I got fired because I didn't meet my work quota. But I don't regret it. My friends, older people who are already retired, advised me to look for apartments for seniors on the seniorsite.org Senior site. I was shocked by the conditions some communities or nursing homes offer. Now, instead of working 8 hours 5 times a week, I sit with a cocktail in my hands and admire the magnificent view on the terrace, or I visit interesting places and have fun with other pensioners.
