Hello everyone. Long story short: Worked in my job for 15 years. In the last year I had to go out on FMLA twice and a personal leave. I was terminated 3 weeks ago because I could not do the job nay more. I was a Parole Officer. During the past year, Ive had some very mean things said about me while I was on leave, like I was in drug rehab, I was an alcoholic, I got fired... I had a nervous breakdown. All coming from one girl and our secretary at work. Im sure some of you have heard my horror stories. Then when I went back to work in Sept, My supervisor ( I worked in a satellite office)was throwing things at me calling me names as was our secretary. She was even calling me a nut job to my Parolees. I made several complaints to the higher bossed to no avail. All the while being in tremendous pain. Anyway, So I finally left on Jan 2. I had one girlfriend who worked in another satellite office who was very supportive but she was very angry when I decided to leave. She thought I should just sick it up, but I could not. I couldn't stand the pain anymore along with the mental abuse. Since I left, my stress level has gone down tremendously. My problem is is that she calls me everyday to talk about work and how miserable she is there without me. She also tells me what people are saying about me. Some people are still believing the rumors. It upsets me so much that I just cry. Soon as my husband comes home before I say anything he looks at me and says " you've been talking to Mary huh". She also wants to have lunch with me and all the girls from my old office ( who never once stood up for me during the harassment) I have no desire to see any of them or talk to any of them. It makes me sick to my stomach that thoses people got away with what they did to me. My girlfriend does not understand that my family is in deep trouble. We have 2 small kids ( she has no kids and a beautiful house in the riches part of town) no financial worries for her at all. I just sent her an email saying Im not really ready to talk to anyone right now and that Im going thru a very bad time. I also asked her to not relay this info to anyone as we know how people talk in work. I think I pissed her off. Im sorry but right now I need to worry about myself and my family. I don't want to hear about work nor do I want to hear all the gossip because I just doent care anymore. Im also still trying to accept the fact that im disabled. It hurts to even right that. Am I going crazy? Is this normal?
