Sorry you're going through this. Talking to a lawyer is smart.

My I'm not a lawyer advice: Get everything in writing. If they have verbal conversation with you, email them (HR, your manager) and BCC your personal email recapping/confirming what was said.

Also, HR giving you medical advice really doesn't seem smart of them.


I agree with Creative Director 1. Moreover, I’m concerned as to why HR would give you medical advice...especially telling you to get on medicine. I’m sorry to hear this!


they’re using examples from prior to my ADA, but i had gone to them addressing my concerns about the quality of my work because of my anxiety. they suggested i take a week off (i took 4 days off working on my portfolio bc i know my mental health problems stem from this job). this is also coming from the HR who told me to get on antidepressants (i’ve been off and on... she has no business knowing my med schedule). once i get the PIP paperwork i’m contacting an EEOC lawyer just to see if i have a case when they fire me

Today was my first day at a new company and my anxiety is through the roof - I couldn’t help but feel awkward around everyone, I’m meeting clients on Wednesday, and I’m terrified overall that (cont.)

I always feel like I’m messing up and I have this horrible feeling every time I send out an email that has 3+ people on it that I’m saying the wrong thing or that people just deal with me and not actually respect what I have to say... 😓😓😓 how do I counter this?? I feel so mediocre.


How do you find out if you have a mental issue, or you just suck at certain things? I’m apprehensive of seeing a therapist - maybe just an innate mistrust of people who have everything to benefit by convincing me I have a problem.


I'm really struggling. My company just furloughed some staff and I'm beating myself up about it. I keep thinking maybe there was something I could have done better to get the right kind of leads or maybe I made the wrong call on a pitch that could have brought in enough business to save people's jobs. Anyone else have these feelings? I know its survivor's guilt, but I feel like I've let my coworkers and their families down.


I have ADD and anxiety. I find it impossible to PM creative projects because there are so many elements and parameters are so vague and undefined. Every time a plan changes it gives me major anxiety:(

All I do all day long is mindless tasks and answer emails with the same responses. After 4 days I start to feel this strange feeling. It feels like I am in a haze and no longer have a personality.....

Dad had to get emergency open heart surgery over the weekend. Now me and my family are preparing to help him recover and determine what those next steps are.

While all that is happening, we’re working on a huge initiative at the agency and our client has been super anxious about it. That anxiety is coming down stream so I’m trying to do my best as the PM to alleviate the team’s concerns.

And today, I found out I got a raise.

It’s too much going on the last few days.


I need help. Where do I start? (No I’m not suicidal. I just see the downward spiral ahead.)

It’s been a grueling 18 months, for everyone. There’s a unique story I’d like to share and it’s my own but I have to believe it’s not only mine. I was privileged enough to be able to WFH during the pandemic and change jobs to a fully remote job during this time. The isolation has become so complete, with the lack of connection and professional rapport or daily respect/clarity thru slack convos and sporadic zoom - I’m at an all time mental low barely able to start this Monday morning.
