Yesterday, my boss told me that she thinks my disability(AS) is just a ploy to get attention and that i need to see a therapist. I was speechless. I guess I shouldn't be surprised. Two weeks ago, I was going to visit my family over the weekend and she told me she better not see me using my forearm crutch when I get back to work. My job has never suffered because of this disease and I have never taken time off because of it. I have a service dog but I do not bring her to work because I work at a college and have 400 young people to help me if i should drop something. My other problem is my boss is head of the HR department.

record and report.
make sure you mention a lawyer...that's always a fun additive to any conversation with a business bully.

Teri,
Sounds like discrimination to me, record everything that is said to you. Unfortunately with my life/work experience, disability discrimination is not uncommon with previous employers, including local government. I myself have been discriminated against in past jobs. My current employer treats me equally as bad as everyone else.
