I just started lurking these forums and reading random posts here and there, but your post made me actually create an account for the first time. The world is such a mess, we judge others and portray our insecurities onto them to feel better about ourselves. It has nothing to do with you, this is the world's problem and it makes it a much worse place for everyone. Notice how animals don't judge each other? Every one of us will end up looking identical on our palliative bed, weak frail and with the same elderly face.. yet some people choose to be immoral and bully others because they are weak.
Hang in there and remember this is the world's problem, not yours. Like others I'm curious what kind of bullying you experienced as well, I've seen all kinds of bullying in nursing to a variety of people. I've seen an entire nursing home gang up one one nurse (a beautiful woman who was smart and did nothing wrong). Nursing can be a very toxic environment for sure.
