I experienced something similar in that my manager increased demands knowing of my ADHD diagnosis. I finally lawyered up and filed an EEOC (US) complaint. It was the best thing I’ve ever done! In mediation, they agreed to call the dogs off and let me function. I’d hesitated so long, fearing what would happen if this “good girl” went after the bosses and it turned out that it was the only thing that stopped the abuse. They had to take me seriously. The lawyer came to the mediation meeting and just her being there was enough to change the dynamic. She cost me $1200, and I probably ran up that kind of tab in the time it took to read my files, let alone her being there.
