Took long time to get were I am and proud of myself . Please don't be afraid of standing up and saying to them you don't like what they say to you I did and did not like it.

    Welcome to the community @hjewry :) How are you today?

    I'm sorry to hear that you were bullied at work. No one deserves for that to happen to them. Have you made a formal complaint, or taken any other formal steps to raise your concerns? 

    And you should definitely feel proud of where you are today! 

    Just to let you know, I've moved your post into our category for topics relating to learning difficulties. I've also renamed your post slightly so that it can be found by other members more easily.

    Hi sorry this is happening to you  has it been happening the whole time you have been working there or just recently 

    Do you have a union rep  you could speak to accas about it or if you think you could manage it take your employer to tribunal 

    If you do take your employer to tribunal you don't have to tell them that your doing this the tribunal will notify them at a time when required 

    Have you put a complaint in to your employer to see if this situation can be resolved 

    I hope things get better for you

    Hi Helen @hjewry Welcome to the forum. Seven years is a long time to be in any job and you are rightly proud of yourself. @Tori_Scope is right. You should think of making a complaint. Are you in a union? If so they should be able to help you. Bullies are awful people and good for you to stand up for yourself. That takes courage. Well done.
