I think they may have underestimated this mountain man's daughter just a tiny bit. We shall see and tonight I feel strangely calm.

I am so proud of me!!
I did it! I was shakin, but I had an instant good "vibe" with the guy I talked to - he's about my age and worked for the state 2 years longer... we empathized with each other instantly - and I have now filed an official complaint with the Division of Human Rights for discrimination and harassment of a person with a disability. PTSD is considered a disability under the Americans w/Disabilities something or other - according to the Sr. Attorney of the Commission of (he has a really long title, but this is how it starts and ends..) and Advocacy for persons with a disability. And that man knows his stuff, I must say. I have a lot of regrets in my life - but not going outside my safety zone and fighting what's right this time isn't gonna be one of them. Win or lose, I will have done absolutely all I can do. He said it's gonna be more or less 2 months before we know much... but I feel good.
