Thanks. Is this considered a legitimate disability by the ADA?
It may be. The determination of whether it is a disability depends on how the condition affects you specifically. The EEOC’s enforcement guidance for psychiatric disabilities will give you a good overview of the way these conditions are treated. Note, however, that this guidance was issued before the changes to the ADA in 2008 which expanded the definition of disability. Thus, it is more likely today that these kinds of problems may qualify as a disability than was the case when this guidance was issued.
