Is 'agoraphobia' considered a disability?
I have always wondered, if whether having this thing, this 'disease' is a disability. If so, my questions are why? Can the government give benefits? and Should people treat us differently?
i guess it is down to which country your living in...here in Australia it would be recognized as an illness and a government benefit would be paid and rehab assistance into work would be offered.
I hope not. I wouldn't want to feel like I am disabled in anyway.
In the UK, it is a disability that MIGHT qualify for disability income. It would qualify for disability accommodations and help from vocational rehab.
I have to do jury duty in a week and I am so nervous about being cooped up in a room with guarded doors. I wonder if having anxiety might be a valid excuse...
It is considered a disability. I get disability money from the government every month. It's not much, but it helps. There has to be some benefit from having severe anxiety!
It should be. We need help.
