I worked PT at an office for 5 years, 4 months. In that time, I was hospitalized 14 times for over a week and taken off time when schizoaffective d/o symptoms cropped up. I had disclosed to my HR and my Regional Supervisor right after I was hired and everyone I worked with pretty much knew something was “wrong”.

Well this last year has been very hard because our roles changed and we would be losing a huge client. The FT employees feared their jobs.

Long story short, I was set to start work again on NYE and the minute I walked in one of my coworkers said, “Oh, no…” I immediately walked into a private room and called my Regional Supervisor. She said she was glad I called, because she said she needed me to do something for her. She asked me to draft an email stating that I am resigning as of that day due to medical reasons and not go into details. Then she thanked me for my years of service and prayed for my future. She had me do it while I was on the phone.

Then I left. It wasn’t until I got home and told my mom that it seemed…wrong. I don’t plan on fighting them, I just wanted to vent.


I’m sorry they did that to you. That’s rough.


That’s illegal.


I know. But it’s sooo hard to prove.


Not with a phone in your pocket recording the conversation.


I don’t think there’s anything you can do now that it’s over.


Like I said, I don’t intend on fighting. It’s more heartbreaking because we have had such accommodations for YEARS.


Too bad, the settlement would pay for a serious chunk of a new home.


It’s just very, very sad. I ache for you.


Hmm. Yeah, I suppose. Not sure it’d be worth the stress


I’m sorry that this happened to you!


Thanks. I’m aching myself.


I’m sorry that you have gone through this I hope that you find a new job that treats you well.


Thank you. It will be a challenge to find something as accommodating as my former job. But I have dusted of the resume and applied to one job so far.


Are you in the USA? If so you should qualify for FMLA (google it).


Thanks, I will.


It must have been unpleasant and sudden attack on you.It’s good you posted here your problem.You are ok.


If you’re in the US, that’s illegal because it’s discrimination. I’m sorry this happened to you.


It was just shocking. My boss has been nothing but … accommodating!


It’s rude.Just evil.
