Disability confidentiality at work-Hidden disability

I have recently been rewarded reasonable workplace adjustments to work from home. I chose not to share my disability with coworkers but they are now hostile and disgruntled and this shoes with distribution of work, furthermore my managers have told them my arrangements are only a trial which they are objecting to.

    How lovely. I am sooo sorry for your experience. I bet they are all have BE KIND motto on their facebook profiles. It makes me so angry straightaway, as I had also not very nice experience at work. Don't give up and fight for yourself. People can be awful, but please don't give in. YOU are important.

    Hello @delight2107

    I'm sorry to hear that your coworkers are reacting negatively to your reasonable adjustments. 

    It might be worth speaking to your manager regarding them characterising the adjustments as a trial and to clarify the duration and permanency of your workplace adjustments. 

    Have you spoken to your manager or coworkers regarding the hostile behaviour? They may be able to discuss potential solutions to improve the work environment.

    My managers also sadly took their stance and support them
