    Hello @ravenracing and welcome to the online community, 

    Thank you for creating this discussion and telling us about what you are going through. 

    It sounds like you're in a bit of a stressful moment right now, which I'm sorry to hear. I hope you find the online community to be a positive outlet for you.

    Have you told them that you don't feel safe at your original station? It is a shame that they have tried to make you go back there, I can understand why it has caused you some upset.

    I wanted to share this page from the Scope website with you, that contains information about ill health retirement, I hope it can be helpful for you. I have moved your discussion over to our work and employment category, and edited the title a bit.

    Outside of work, how are you managing with your autism and anxiety on a day to day basis? Do you have any support in place, from a GP for example, to help you to manage them?

    I have included below a few of the pages I’d recommend having a look through to get used to things:

    • The virtual coffee lounge which is one of our categories, in which we play games and talk about general subjects such as hobbies and interests
    • The recent discussions page, which shows an overview of everything happening across the community
    • The categories page, which shows a full list of discussion groups on the community

    If you have any questions at all then don’t hesitate to ask.
