Medical privacy violated & used to discriminate against me

In the recent months my health status has changed dramatically. I have had to take sick days but all under doctor's care and with the documentation for any time missed. I had noticed a change in my treatment from my supervisor as far as what was considered acceptable from other pharmacist if they had to be out that day was not acceptable for me. I also was given a warning for leaving a message about having to be out when I couldn't reach my supervisor directly. This has been done by others in the past with no incident noted and they didn't even have a doctor's note. This past week I was late getting to work (I over-slept) which fatigue is part of my health issue, and i had asked for part of the week off as vacation days but was denied. I knew that working 80 hours in 7 days was pushing it but i couldn't get the time off. Well, I was late and that is my fault but that very day the pharmacist that I was switching shifts was 45 minutes late.I got written up but the other pharmacist did not and 2 pharmacist were late the next day again no one written up. My supervisor even told staff in the pharmacy he had called the hosipital UNC and I was not there& I lied about my illness.I have to work with them do I have any legal recourse?
