What Every Target of Workplace Bullying Needs to Know

No More Work For Me

by Makysha
(Snow Hill, MD)

I haven't worked for 3 years. Why? I was so tired of being terrorized at work. The false rumors and constant physical altercations proved to be enough. I feel I made the right decision, because I would have done something violent to retaliate against my co workers.

I am a former victim of child trafficking and domestic violence. Work was supposed to be an escape and a way to provide for my children. It became a haven of hell.

My former child sex attackers were also friends with my boss. My boss started telling my coworkers that I was a liar and his friends do not attack girls. Soon, I was accused of being a criminal with taunts of "whore" and "slut" constantly. This place was also featured in the motion picture "Runaway Bride."

I have worked at other places, but in a small area the sick treatment is carried on. I got tired of changing from job to job. After my last employer treated me the same way, I say no to working. As a minority there is nowhere to get help.

I hope there is hope there

I am so very sorry to hear how you have been treated all of your life. Like they are victimising the victim over and over again. And you are being traumatised and re-traumatised over and over again. Is there a woman's refuge or something that can help you and your children relocate to a safer place and start again, even though you shouldn't have to, but it might be possible and a bit of hope.

Double victimization
by: Anonymous

we have to ask why you would work at a place that was populated by people who sexually assaulted you as a child.

It would be more healthy to put as much distance between you and them as possible - like maybe several thousand miles.

Surely, if you found torment at every place of work, then you probably carry the demons inside yourself. Until you can face them, your demons will follow you wherever you go whether it is a workplace or otherwise.

I hope you are getting professional help for your struggles. That would be a good place to start.

Re, no more work...

I hope you can get away from these people as soon as possible. I have had similar experiences having to go from job to job. It must be awful having to go through that; it is like being tortured over and over again, and through no fault of your own.
It's as if society wants to punish you for something you haven't done.
I wish you all the best and hope you can find an answer to all of this. Peace.
