I work in the IT field and sometimes I make mistakes and mostly its due to my dyslexia.
I spell names incorrectly, incorrectly categorize tickets in the system, accidentally click on buttons I should not have, or send e-mails to someone that should not get them.
I also misrepresent numbers as letters and so on, etc. In the past I have lost opportunities, not received raises, and been punished for this.
I have to go over things multiple times and read sentences over and over again which is exhausting for my brain.
I have been ridiculed by other colleagues which makes me feel dumb or inadequate and I just recently thought "well, this isn't really my fault and that maybe I should have a note or something from a doctor or psychologist to protect me or give me some accommodation to help me with this disability."
I live in Costa Mesa, California and work in Fountain Valley if you have any referrals.
I also have PTSD from the military and I am bi-polar, which I have a note from the VA for.
