I am being bullied at work and I just don't know what to do. It's to the point it's affecting my health. A coworker (our board runner) befriended me, for me to find out she just wanted to find my weaknesses, and she's managed to turn everyone in my area against me. She does our assignments so everyone's deserted me for fear of her. I get talked about and ignored. No one helps me admit patients and leaves me alone in procedure rooms with patients.
I'm a very experienced, compassionate, good nurse. I am very well liked by the doctors and at one time by all the staff. She is very abrasive and rude to other depts and to pts and families. She told me she was going thru so much when she was pretending to be my friend. I started to trust her and confided in her (big mistake) I even got her started running. I used to be an avid runner till I started getting sick all the time
She told me I am too nice and forgive everyone. That really hurt me. So I told her that's just the way I was raised. After that she had taken some days off and I had to run the board. I got many compliments. Well when she returned she stopped speaking to me. Would just be rude to me. Give me bad assignments. I got sick and while I was out I guess she managed to bad mouth me. Over a period of time she's managed to spread ill rumours and turn everyone against me. I get sick often now. All with doctors notes. True illnesses. I feel sick before I go to work and I worry. I just get the silent treatment. It's so hard cause I had no friends outside of work. Now no one calls or talks to me, during or after work. If people are at the desk socializing with her and i try to join she sends me to do a crappy assignment .Feeling very sad, isolated and alone. I cry a lot. Especially with the holidays being here.
The docs even notice the change The docs noticed that I just keep to myself and look very sad
I can't sleep at night
I just have no idea what I've done wrong. I work hard when I am there. I stay late. I still help others despite being shunned and ignored.
I over heard people in a room talking very ugly about me. Making fun. It just really hurts. Makes it hard to go to work anymore. It's ruined my confidence and my health is suffering
