So, what did I do, you inquire? Did I have an anger outburst? Did I throw up my hands and quit on the spot, without a fight (civilly of course)? Did I seek mental health “therapy,” when in fact my abusers were the ones who needed therapy to deal with their issues? The answer is NO to each. Instead, as I advise readers of my book to do, I kept my cool and I DOCUMENTED the blatant unlawful retaliation. I used their very own collusion against them, which left no doubt to any impartial judge that this was a gross abuse of authority and discretion by management.
The happy ending? I have returned to excellent health, working out as a hobby, and living a stress free life. I now am free to use my experience and expertise to help people address workplace bullying worldwide. Oh, and by the way, management’s vile and malicious abuse – fully documented by me as an attorney and anti-bullying expert – helped me prevail in my legal action against one of the federal government’s largest agencies – notwithstanding their army of lawyer hacks.
