I was struggling really bad this past winter with generalized anxiety and panic attacks then developed into agoraphobia. I started struggling with my busy full time job. I ended up on stress leave but only for a short a few days then went back to work the following week. Realizing I needed more time off.. I went bacj to my doc to leave work again and they refused to sign the paper work. I stuck it out by seeing my counsellor and trying medications. I had bad side affects and ended up missing a bunch of work which later ended up in me being layed off and not rehired. So long story short I feel my anxiety made me lose my job. I was open and honest about it with my boss in hopes of getting my job back. It was a very well paying job and I'm so sad and disappointed and am wondering if anyone else has been through this and what else can I do for support? Is there any legal action I can take?
