I think I would get a letter from my endo stating the sypmtoms you have described. It seems to me that had you let your boss dismiss you …you might could claim discrimination. Since you asked to be let go because of health reasons perhaps you can claim disability….it is after all a temporary situation<usually> before you are euthyroid though it could take years I imagine to become euthyroid depending on treatment. Hopefully you have a doctor who will back up your claim that the stresses of the job were too much for you to handle under your present circumstances.
I can tell you that right now any little thing sets me off<supersonic hyper> even reading passages from books that are suspenseful. You have a systemic disease that disrupts the daily function of your life including work. I have easily distracted attention span and this disease has been accepted by my university so that I may recieve disability accomodations. I am disadvantaged compared to other students as my mental faculties are not normal at this time.
It is a hard road we travel albeit a temporary one<not that there is a cure but successful treatment is obtainable>. Hang in there and see if your doctor wont help you..remind him you are only looking for temporary solutions until you are euthyroid <not wanting a free ride>. If need be print posts from this BB so that he may see the degree of difficulty you are having. Perhaps even a pyschiatrist can help document your mental and cognitive state.
God Bless you Dear,

What state do you live in? No matter what state you live in, all 50 states are covered by the ADA. How many employees are there at your company?
As for sticking it out, nothing is worth being abused, no matter who by. And, no one but you can decide when enough is enough. I am with you kiddo. You are in my prayers.

Sounds like you may have done the right thing due to the stress you were under. Boss sounds like a butt head but then, there are alotta those out there! Now, as far as you giving notice and then him saying he let you go, that doesn’t sound kosher to me. I would seek legal advice there.
Good Luck and wishing you wellness and peace!

Actually, maybe it’s better for Paula that her boss fired her when she quit — she may be eligible for unemployment that she might not have gotten just by quitting.
I think in an at-will employment state, either the boss or the employee can terminate at any time, for almost any reason, with no notice. The 2 week notice is just a courtesy.
