What would you do? I'm pretty angry.

Ok, so I work 2 jobs. One is 5 days a week, the other 2 days I spend at one I hate, but it pays the bills. Either way, I'm manic depressant and bipolar and a few months ago I finally made the decision to start on some medication,  which has been great for me. Every couple weeks I speak with a counselor, answer some questions and see where my depression is sitting. My score for this has doubled in the past month so she basically told me I need to get a day off a week because I'm driving myself insane. So I told my boss that I would like Thursdays off from now on and explained why. Come to find out today, (an employee called me), shes telling everyone that I need Thursdays off to go she a psychiatrist. Now, I am very open about my mental issues, I am not ashamed of them and don't feel like I need to be. But it isn't even true, not to mention not her place to say anything to anyone if it were. As the general manager I'm shocked that she is  so unprofessional and disrespectful, not to mention stupid. I used to work there 60 hours a week long before she came along, shes there because I chose school over her position so you think she'd know that it would get back to me from coworkers I've know for years. Alright, I'm done.....

That is not appropriate at all.  I would be angry too.

manic depressive IS bipolar. Manic depressive is no longer used as a medical term. I would calmly expain to my boss why that was not very sensitive and even unprofessional and to please keep personal issues private from now on. Are you being granted your request?

You're "manic depressant and bipolar." Is that not like saying you live in a bigness, huge house? There's no way that was a doctors official diagnosis.

That constitutes a hostile work environment.

I'd be pissed too.

When I found out I was pregnant one of the managers at my then-job knew but I specifically asked her not to tell anyone. She told everyone and screamed at me on the sales floor when I confronted her (nicely) about it.

The DM was called in and she hated me even more when the DM told her they'd choose me over her lol.

Go to whoever is above her and talk with them about how she broke confidentiality.

I know I didn't have to, I chose to though. Scheduling has been tight so I felt bad.

I would be pissed as well.  I would file a complaint with HR right away.  She would be fired for that at many professional places.
