Well hello there RShields Shay here. I just want to let you know that you are not alone in this world and going through this certain experience by yourself. I'm Bi sexual and I am a nurse here in Toledo, OH. I'm not from here I just moved to Ohio a couple of months back to be closer to my children and girlfriend.
Things have not always been easy for me as a female and being of Mixed descent, It's always been a struggle for me but when faced with those kind of experiences I choose to take the high road and report that person and or group to my HR because I come to work to feel safe and get my work done not to be criticized treated unfairly or made fun of. That's harassment something that should NOT be tolerated in ANY facility. That's not right.
What I say to you is to stand up for yourself and let your HR department know and remain anonymous. I'm here if you EVER want to talk.
