Hi,
I am new here and desperation has made me post because I have nothing left I can do. I have spent the past 20 years dealing with a very rare MI which I have just been told is called "Confabulation".
Basically (and I mean very basically), I tell extremely detailed lies about myself, however, I COMPLETELY believe they are true events. I have just lost my ONLY friend because of this and today, only two days after telling my friend, I have also been fired! My work was the last thing I had left and the only place I was "normal" for 8 hours a day.
Is it against the law to be fired from a mental illness??

Theoretically a person cannot be discriminated against because of mental illness, but If you have been working there for less than 2 years you can be dismissed for no reason whatsoever and there is no protection for you.
