Well it appears that they are trying their best to sack you, especially with written warnings and the like.
All you can do is have a report from your doctor to confirm that you are stressed from your employment.
Once that is obtained, it will be used against the employer.
Secondly, you can seek a lawyer, but you can also speak with the fair work ombudsman and they can investigate.

Is there any further assistance I can be of?
