I’ve been managing with Crohn’s disease for years. I’ve also had acute stress for some time. The combination feels like it’s putting me over the edge of my ability to cope. Would a claim for disability benefits include Crohn’s because it complicates my stress?
The claim would include the Crohn’s disease since it is relevant as a contributing factor to a disabling condition. That you have had Crohn’s for many years should not prevent you from pursuing a disability claim.
