> That sounds like good advice about the ADD, I think. I had a 'twinge' about it before, that I didn't pay any attention to & when you mentioned it, I realized I'd been concerned that they might use it against you.
That's the thing, its legally a disability and illegal for them to use it against me. And my HR lady is the one who suggested it saying then my boss would have to accommodate me. I tried to explain what the doctor said, but it was like talking in circles. She just kept saying, "But how do we know how we could accommodate you without the doctor writing us a note about it?"
> I'm glad you were able to be so open with the HR lady. She sounds fair. But what's the saying - 'once bitten, twice shy' - I can see how you'd not trust anything.
Well, I don't know if its that I'm able to be open with her so much as I'm at my wits end and just saying it like it is. Ever since our first meeting, when she seemed somewhat compassionate, she is now very indifferent and standoffish. So who knows what's going on. I've got to get back into the job hunting game and try to remember how pathetic and ridiculous these people I work with are.
