Been at job for 1.5 years without disclosing. I’m bipolar type 1 with psychotic features and also adhd and ptsd. I have struggled with things that aren’t acceptable in consulting like needing to miss calls last minute bc of emergency situations and just general inconsistency in my work - periods of it being very good and very bad. I work at an HR company in a small subsidiary consulting group (mainly compensation consulting). The whole time I’ve been here people incl. very senior people have been talking about me - have received calls telling me what people are saying about me and emails they accidentally cc’d me on about how I’m not trying, making excuses, inconsistent, with some of them having HR copied too. It’s really wearing me down and making me feel uncomfortable here but i don’t know what reasonable accommodations to ask for or if it’s not worth it because of the stigma.

In an almost identical situation. What medications do you take if you don’t mind sharing?

Sorry you’re going through this, OP. What reasonable accommodation do you think would help?

That’s what i can’t figure out. It would help to not work really late so i can focus on sleep (super important for mood). It would help immensely to be in an office or have office space that isn’t my bedroom, but nothing they can do. Mostly just want people to stop talking about me so it’s probably just not the right place and im kind of thinking i shouldn’t be in consulting at all

Deciding that next year (ideally before) is my cut off for leaving this job; whether it’s through a new career path, manual labor or just quitting without a backup plan. My mental health deserves better, sticking it out for one more year as I aim to to be vested in my 401K and save up for 6-9month emergencies. I feel insane for leaving consulting especially with only 1-2 YOE but it’s just not worth it anymore.
