I'm having difficulty obtaining reasonable accommodations in the workplace, and it's causing so much stress trying to prove that I have a disability that needs accommodation.

I'm currently trying to establish reasonable accommodations through my employer (we have an entire team dedicated to this), and I'm having such a hard time! My case keeps getting kicked back as they request more and more clarification from my provider about my accommodations requests. I'm not asking for much, essentially just trying to establish a hybrid schedule so that I can work from home when it's unsafe for me to drive due to my condition.
This whole process feels so disorganized, confusing, and stressful. This is the first time I've ever tried to request accommodations in the workplace, so I'm not sure if others experience this much back and forth and confusion? Accommodations are supposed to make it easier for us to perform in our jobs but the process of setting it up is far from easy.

After I cut ties with my former employer, I closed out that role on LinkedIn.
I'm finding that the interest I received previously especially from recruiters has vanished. Did I mistake and should I have kept that role listed until I found a new position? If so, is there anything I can do in the interim to pickup traffic again to my profile?

Toxic Work Environments:
I see so many conversations on here about toxic work environments. People discussing what is vs isn't toxic and the like. I would love to have a post dedicated to that topic. What is YOUR definition of a toxic workplace? What are some of the toxic behaviors you have dealt with that encouraged/forced you to leave OR how you handled it to make the situation better?

I have a moral quandary I'd love some insight on. I spent all fall legally breaking my company into entities. Recently, my small company divested of one of those entities, and that entity wants me to come work for them. There is nothing against it in the inter-company agreement. I feel a great loyalty to my boss, but don't have much confidence in Senior Leadership and this new offer is infinitely more fun (although along the same lines) as my current job. So, we'd haveto handle the transition carefully so as not to damage relationships. What would you do? Are there any other factors I'm omitting to consider? Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts and expertise.

I've been invited for a second interview and am so excited!
I love the company and what they do, and I have all the skills and experience they are asking for. How can I avoid my enthusiasm being perceived as too confident, arrogant, or pushy?
