Alive and Well, It Exists
by So Sad
My husband committed suicide over this issue; the perpetrators took my bright and personable husband and had him questioning his very sanity. It took its toll on our marriage and I could not convince him to quit the job or to seek counseling.
He informed management numerous times of what was happening, but the perpetrators, just like your articles state, became more powerful and influential. My husband was the sole person doing his job at a major company, one brief assistant resigned, saying his workload was that of four or five people at previous companies she had worked at. The work kept coming and coming and the perpetrators kept telling management how easy his job was.
When he died, the work was given to three people plus a contract company. I wonder who they bully now, since it appears the bully always finds another victim. When the coroner called me, I knew exactly what happened, it came as no surprise but it came with great sorrow that my husband would think these horrible people should have so much input into who and what he was and did.
We as a family are agonized beyond belief and cannot seem to find adequate insight into why this happened. Of course, the company wants to trivialize and wash their hands of it, despite my husband's oft reported incidents. His other coworker resigned and found other work... the commonality is that they were the only two workers of color in their departments.
The one who resigned was not going to let the company kill him also. Our hearts are with all of you who have been so victimized, the pain is unbearable at times and although we, somehow, are recovering and not in that place after his suicide, we are tortured and hurt with an undercurrent of prolific sadness everyday.
