Re: Recently Diagnosed NS Still got suspended from work - Help?

Is there any way you can get a brief on the accusations before the hearing, or do you have to go in blind?

It might be worth getting a note from any docs or therapists you've been involved with, and to ask for representation. If you're unionised this can be your union rep. If you're not unionised, there might be an advocate of some sort for people in your position. Ask what your rights are with respect to this hearing. Get those rights in writing.

Other than that, the most you can do is to be honest. Don't volunteer information beyond the questions they ask, and it sounds like you're doing your best to take responsibility for your earlier outburst and to improve your performance. Hopefully you will have the opportunity to demonstrate that.

Regarding your outburst, you can't undo that; the most you can do is stress that you regret your actions, have done your best to take responsibility by apologising and taking steps to both address the underlying problem and to repair the relationships involved. You were upset, and felt like a legitimate medical issue was being ignored. If your leg had been broken and your GM had said "I don't care if you're still bleeding: You still have to do your normal shift" you'd probably have been pretty upset about that too.
