If you have a disability, you employer has to provide you with a reasonable accommodation. Your employer cannot retaliate against you for this as it a legal right under the ADA. Understand that your boss can be mean and abusive and it is your right if you are an at-will employee to find new work. If the abuse becomes excessive the you could have a cause of action such as libel or slander under principles other than employment law. In order to have a cause of action under employment law, you need to be discriminated against because you are part of a protected class (gender, age, race, etc.). You would be a member of a protected class if you have a disability (your depression and anxiety would count). So if this abuse is stemming from that then you would have a cause of action against your employer but you normally need to file an EEOC complaint or a private complaint and retain an attorney so if that is not what you want to do it could be difficult. So if this abuse is because of your disability then you have a cause of action if not, you might not.
