Have You Ever Been Let Go...?

With this recent story out of the U.S. and accusations against Amazon, click here

Fired Amazon employee with Crohn’s disease files lawsuit over lack of bathroom access

It begs the question, has anyone else been discriminated at work because of their illness or condition?  I know I have and it got to the point where I was fired so I filed a Human Rights complaint against the company because they knew about my Crohn's Disease when they hired me AND it was actually my second time round with this particular company.
But after many, many months back and forth with lawyers, with the he said, she said, the case was finally dropped....only because the company closed its doors and no longer existed. I had no case if there was no company.
The point is, if this happens to you AND the employer knew about your condition, don't let it go.
You have to FIGHT for your rights !!

Remicade : Day 2384

Second infusion at the higher dose. I don't notice any difference, other than it really knocks me down after. I was very tired the next day and now this is the second day and I feel drained. Could be something else maybe, but we'll see after the next one in March.
I don't know about anyone else, but when I go for my infusion, I like it a bit quiet. This last infusion, some 20 something came in near the end of mine and sat in the chair next to me, which is all fine and dandy, but then proceeded to Facetime his buddy, without headphones and without turning the volume down. Like it was it house, or standing outside, or something. His mum came in to ask if he wanted anything and he basically ignored her and kept talking to his friend. They were both swearing back and forth, etc.
The lack of consideration and the utter rudeness to his mum I think is the sign of the times for 20 somethings. Not all, but a good many. It's not the first time I've experienced this.
My kids won't and aren't brought up that way. Have some respect.
