"For 17 yrs of my life, I lived, ate, and breathed that org, 24/7. Then you came along. Unlike you and those now involved there, I actually HAVE the very illness that you pretend to understand and represent. I was so ill with late-stage Lyme as well, and getting sicker daily. I tried to tell you this. It all fell on deaf ears -- more denial. Wash, rinse, repeat . . . After all, who wants to work with sick people, right (or so I've heard)?"
"Ironic, isn't it? I got the very same "but you don't look sick" speech that we had fought so hard for decades to erase in the medical/lay communities. You even told me daily that my work was horrific, my skill-set was lacking, and that my writing was atrocious (yet you still sell the very books that I wrote)? That's rather remarkable to me. I mean, how did I manage to go from a top-notch employee -- the "backbone of the org" I was called many times over the yrs -- to a blithering idiot in a matter of months (after 17 yrs)???"
"But I also know that you feared and resented me quite a bit (as did others on the BOD and staff) because I was much smarter than average, much thinner than all of you (LOL), and was a more honest human who would not so easily lie on command -- a truth seeker/moral compass who questioned before merely following commands from a dictator. I actually dared to have opinions, as I always have and always will. In the end, you got what you wanted and I was forced to resign or literally be hospitalized (or commit suicide)."
"So, you took away the only source of pride that I had left in my life. You took away my sole source of income. You refused to acknowledge just how sick I was or that my disease even exists. You pretty much destroyed my life to its core. And you did this to a person who represents what you are supposed to be advocating for. Talk about kicking the "cancer patient."
"But Karma's a bitch and does not suffer fools easily.The secret is exposed. The cat's out of the bag. Your underhanded ways, cruelty, and corruption will surely come back to bite you, and hard. Maybe they already have."
"I may be sicker now, thanks in part to severe, documented PTSD caused by your insidious, precision-like, planned and executed mistreatment, but am also way, way smarter, even leaner, and I am a part of an outstanding and ever-growing community of anti-workplace bullying activists (and Lyme activists, too) that are organized in your state, in our country, and throughout the world. We mean business. We are not laughing and smiling w/you in your faux Pollyanna reality. We have much more important work to do."
"You still invade my dreams nightly and turn them into nightmares. But one day I know that you will reap what you've sown. I have faith in that, if nothing else."
And you keep believing your behavior does not affect lives, it does! Get some help and serious counseling, these "Dear Bully Boss" comments are not made up or imagined. These are real people with real lives, you are not the only one in the world. That's right, to the bullying boss, the world only centers around you. My Dear Bully Boss letter is this blog and as time moves forward, your wickedness will continue to be revealed.
