Hi,

I am a student at University. I had to move flats because of this.
They kept telling me I was lying about my illness because I refused to show them proof. It is hurting my mental health and I am at the point where I feel isolated.

What can I do?

Why don't you want to show them proof of your illness?
I know discussing medical conditions can make people feel quite vulnerable sometimes, however this may well resolve the situation.

who asked you to show them proof? the accomodation manager? the disability department at your uni? your former housemates?

what did you need the evidence for?

Out of interest, what did you do to merit them demanding proof of this hidden illness? It sounds somewhat odd that they would randomly demand proof of it unless youd been doing something to irritate them and used this as a justification?
