Thanks, Eric.

Are you available to discuss this matter via 1 on 1 telephone call. It is very fact intensive to determine if you are eligible and a phone call is proper....

That's okay. I appreciate your time, though.

What are the facts behind your separation from work?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
I am still working full-time, but I have a feeling my new boss, who clearly does not like me on a personal level, is trying to find a way to fire me. I am a librarian. I catalog materials for our online catalog so that students can access them. I am the first librarian to tackle cataloging electronic materials and I made a lot of mistakes at first. Mistakes I was the process of cleaning up when she called me into her office and told me that I would have no cataloging privileges for the entire spring semester. There are plenty of books here that need cataloging that I am extremely experienced in handling, but I'm afraid that, because I recently was diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder and Generalized Anxiety Disorder, she will claim I can't do my job.
