My Story - Judy Wells
by Judy Wells
I was a victim of bullying. My name is Judy and I am one of four children, two brothers and another sister. Bullying is like stress, the acts or symptoms are worse than they sound and if you become a victim of either one, you need to be careful it doesn't make you very sick, or almost kill you! I was a victim of bullying and it ended with my going through a very stressful period which almost cost me my life.
Stricter laws need to be put in place against bullying. I am now thirty years old. I don't work and doubt I will ever work again. I have been diagnosed with a severe depressive disorder and anxiety. In my last company the two supervisors I had even, went against me all because of a male colleague they thought liked me. I have experienced hate, abuse, and being teased for not meeting the standards of other girls in my department, whether it be work related or personal.
I then, tracked down my father who had divorced my mother years earlier and both of us together filed a complaint against the last company I was getting mistreated in. I successfully sued and now although I would need help if ever I want to work again, I have enough money to keep me afloat for the rest of my life. To all those that have been bullied, I suggest doing the same. You may or may not be able to get a parent or parents to help, but do seek legal assistance, because bullying, and any other form of abuse in the workplace is actually against the law.
