Today is the first day I realized that my bullying did not just start from this job that I've had for almost 10 years. It started in High School where I was severely bullied. I'm almost 46 years old and when I went to school nobody cared about the ones getting bullied. Anyway, I think I buried the trauma I suffered in the 80's only to have it come back now. Here I am a grown adult working in a medium size company, only to have the same feeling from High School crop up again. I don’t know what you'd call it actually. They don’t sabotage my work and I'm not verbally assaulted. I'm completely ignored. Nobody talks to me anymore. Ever since I complained seven years ago as to why my cubicle was always decorated in Black & Cobwebs for my birthday. That was it... I have been ignored ever since. Birthdays, baby showers, lunch, anything that has to do with contact. Sounds trivial compared to some of the other stories I have read. But I think that because of the torture I suffered in High School, it brings back those memories and feelings that I thought I had under control and obviously don’t. I'm just saying that if I wasn't the butt of everyone's jokes in High School, I may have turned out a better person today and I may not miss so much work because I just have to get up and leave.
