> Bob, I admire your guts. I don't think I could ask for that kind of help from a boss. Question: who decides what "reasonable" means in "reasonable accommodations"?

Noa, I didn't need any guts, I was far to p*ss*d off to need any courage -- she was trying to maneuver me between a rock and a hard place, so I pulled out a jackhammer ;^). Anyway, what is "reasonable" as a "reasonable accommodation" under the ADA has been left to the courts to interpret. The National Alliance for the Mentally Ill has a wonderful brief on the ADA, including in its section on Title 1, the part that deals with workplace issues, a list of reasonable accommodations that have been upheld in the judicial system. I happen to have that brief stored as a PDF on my website -- the URL is I recommend it for everyone who has any concern about discrimination due to your disorder at work, in housing issues, or in dealing with any public or private organization that needs to comply with non-discriminatory practice assurances due to federal or state funding, or whatever. It does a great job of explaining both your rights and your responsibilities, and it does so in a concise, mostly-jargon-free manner.

... ritalin for depression?

> LOL about the baby bin.
=^P ;^)
