    Hello @just4once and welcome to the community, well done for reaching out. I hope you have been able to get some sleep since posting.

    I can tell you are feeling overwhelmed by this all, and asking for help is a really positive step. Can you tell me if you've contacted any support organisations such as Citizens Advice, local to you?

    I would encourage you to contact ACAS if you're able to, they have information on disability discrimination at work.

    Another organisation who might be able to help practically is Advice Local, under the employment category.

    Thanks for explaining what support you're receiving for your conditions at the moment, you've mentioned you're "over medicated", have you spoken to your GP about your concerns at all? Is there anyone who could support you with speaking about your medication?

    I hope this is useful for you, and please do say if something doesn't make sense. Keep us up to date with how things get on, and make sure to look after your mental health if you need to- it's okay to take a break :)
