Em hotep friends.

Oh, goodness! I feel so loved and protected. <3 Thank you all.

I kept hoping this situation would get better. I talked to HR more than once. I talked to my bosses more than once (the particular cafe I work at has had 7 managers in the last 3 years, what does that say?!). I talked to my coworkers more than once, and as gently as I could, explaining as much as I could without divulging personal details which are nobody's business. People rolled their eyes and brushed me off. People quoted the employee handbook. People got angry with me and stopped talking to me for short periods of time. People claimed that they understood and yet just kept on doing what they were doing.

In short, nobody's heard me.

And apart from affecting my mental and physical health, it's having a direct impact on my job performance--which will get me fired, if nothing else.

To quote Hillel: "If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? And if not now, when?"

Enough's enough. For me and for anyone else who might ever run into these issues with this company.

Thank you all for your good thoughts and prayers and the wonderful, powerful Names you've mentioned. <3 I deeply, deeply appreciate it.

Senebty, and much love,
Gezausenu.

I just want to echo the support that's been offered here and I truly wish you the best.  I will have you in my prayers.  It's a powerful thing to stand up to the unjust and powerful and you're doing good not only for yourself but for others by this action.  So thank you, and may Ma'at be present with you <3

Keeping you in my prayers.  I'm in a similar situation with employers (State of AZ).  I've tried to work it out with HR and everyone else in between but they didn't listen.  I'm looking for a new job and as soon as I find one I will be going to the EEOC and filing a complaint myself.

May Ma'at prevail for your situation.

Prayers, sib. May Mama Sekhmet and Set guide you, may Ptah give you calm and peace, may Djehuty give you the right words to speak, and may Mafdet protect you. In all, may Ma'at prevail.

Em hotep, friends.

Thank you all for the love and support. <3

Quick update: I got written up this weekend for my drawer being off at the end of the day (which I knew was bound to happen). Normally I'd chalk that up to making a mistake and just sign the form and be done with it, but I got to thinking about the numerous times I've asked for accommodations (such that good communication is) and no one's heard me. I got to thinking about the repercussions this has on my mental and physical health; one should not have to grind through a shift-long panic attack because their coworkers don't seem to understand or care about their needs and neither does their boss. At the end of the day, my drawer being off wasn't just on me: it was a direct effect of their inability to comply with what I need.

So I refused to sign, citing that both of my disabilities are covered under the ADA and that "reasonable accommodations" are a legal right. My rather apathetic boss perked right up at that and said "Oh, yeah, I totally agree! What you're asking is totally reasonable!" He said he'd talk to HR; I got an e-mail from the head of HR (the nasty pin lady) later that day and she said "I'm sorry to hear that your reasonable accommodations aren't being met! What can we do to help?"

I e-mailed with her briefly, outlining what's going on, and supposedly she's going to call me to talk, although it's been two days . . . we'll see how that goes.

Update #2: Just talked to her! She said--in a very argumentative, defensive tone: "Well, technically the transaction error is still that, regardless of the circumstances. And anyway, you're special to us, but we've been making all sorts of reasonable accommodations to your position; we've done everything you've requested of us [which isn't entirely true, and the requests weren't extreme or taxing to the company]. There's only so much we can do. It's not reasonable to ask 20 people on staff to have one coworker in mind when they're moving about the cafe. What do you expect me to do if there's someone who just doesn't tell you where they are? Terminate their employment? . . . Well, give me a therapist's note and I'll see what we can do about talking to everyone in  a very broad, safety-related way."

. . . Can I cry "[censored]"? I'm honestly speechless and just . . . Speechless! Shocked! I expected it but still--yikes!

Anyway . . . thank you all, again, for your love and support. <3 It's greatly appreciated.

And Rev. Meresinepu, I'll be keeping you in my prayers as well. <3

Senebty,
Gezausenu.

Em hotep, friends.

Just wanted to bump this to add that on Thursday I had a meeting with the head of HR and the COO of the company. After an hour and a half, it became clear that there was nothing they could (or were willing) to do for me. I put in my two weeks' notice, without another job lined up, for the sake of my mental and physical health, both of which were / still are really starting to slip beyond my ability to cope with.

I'm still going to meet with the EEOC, even though the head of HR, two days after our disastrous phone conversation--about a week before the meeting--slung ADA paperwork at me for no apparent reason.

Thank you all for your kindness and support. We'll see what the future brings. Hopefully it's good.

<3

Look out the window. And doesn't this remind you of when you were in the boat, and then later that night you were lying looking up at the ceiling, and the water in your head was not dissimilar from the landscape, and you think to yourself Why is it that the landscape is moving but the boat is still?
