This was my 4th job I’ve been fired from since being diagnosed.
When I say diagnosed it’s not just my Mixed Connective tissue disease, I have bipolar disorder, PTSD, Fibromyalgia, anxiety disorder, and depression.
I had been sick a few times within 4 months and actually felt I was doing well adjusting to a sales line of work I had never done it before. I’m typically in administrative positions.
Continuing on; I had enough when my manager tried to make a joke about me wearing a dress one day and reported him. I was told he had been written up.
Since that day my performance was scrutinized repeatedly I was made fun of because I stopped using alcohol. - my flares were out of control.
I was told I wasn’t a team player but also since I didn’t volunteer to move hot tubs around I had lost “points in the game which my coworker had been winning” at the time. (I was unaware of a game)
Two days later I was terminated for “not following policies and procedures.”
I have tried contacting an attorney which I have been informed many times there’s a conflict of interest , the EEOC which the soonest appointment available is in mid May 2023.
I need help- I’m not married, I don’t have savings. Why was I the one let go?
