I hate how jobs say they care about their employees, but they don't mean it. I take drive-thru orders at McDonalds. My IBS can hit randomly and aggressively. They made me wait literally over half an hour after I told them I needed the bathroom. now I'm literally crying in the bathroom because of how much I hurt from holding it. please tell me I'm not alone

    Would it be possible to reach out to Human Resources Dept to ask for reasonable accommodations? That could make a world of difference

      I've tried. They won't anything without a doctors note and my doctor is refusing to write anything for me

        I'm so sorry to hear that - that's outrageous! Would a copy of recent medical records suffice at all? Surely in the notes they'll have mentioned these symptoms you've shared during your appts?

    I’m so sorry you’re having to deal with this. Why won’t your MD write you a note? Can you go to a different doctor? An Urgent Care centre may be able to give you a note for IBS if you go get seen by them. I agree with you: the work environment in the US is atrocious. I’m sorry you’re being treated this way; you don’t deserve it. Big hugs! 💖

    Your definitely not alone, I feel the pain. Unfortunately because that happens I end up getting fired. So I can't work and now I'm fighting for disability once again. ❤️ 🙏
