    Hi @Clairegaynor and welcome

    Anything that affects the things you can do with regard to daily activities could be classed as a disability. However, not all disabilities qualify for disability benefits which currently is Personal Independence Payments.
    In the first instance you may want to take one of the online self tests

    It depends whether you're asking if you can see yourself as having a disability, or whether you feel you need help with extra costs of your disability from the state, or both. Also I have pernicious anaemia/folate anaemia and I don't class this as a disabling illness but someone else may feel differently. Only you can answer that question.
