I really love my job and don’t want to take a break until I have to, but I am having a hard time coping with the new way people view me after my diagnosis. Hard to explain but no one acts normal around me anymore, they are overly nice, feel bad for me, and I can tell that my boss is worried I won’t be able to perform my job properly. How do people deal with this? I am also worried that clients will not want to work with me because I am a liability. My job brings me a lot of joy and purpose so I do want to stay, I just need to find a new way to approach the workplace right now.
