Harrassment At Work?

Recommended Posts

I had to deal with people at first too.

One of our older employees retired, and they had the back breakroom set up with cake,snacks, ect.Due to a deep fear of cross contamination,I won't touch things set up like a buffet,even if they seem safe, and my boss actually accused me of being rude for not eating.Boyfriend writes it off as "not that serious", and I've had the usual silly comments about how"most women would love to have my problem"(have no real appetite,lost 70 pounds in a year after figuring out what was wrong, and can't seem to stop losing).Yeah, let's trade..I'll enjoy a beer and you can have my staggering medical bills,paranoia about touching anything I didn't see made in front of me, and intense stomach pain.

You are being harassed due to a medical condition that is not your fault.No different than someone teasing a disabled person, or someone with cancer.Go to corporate and get it stopped.If they try to fire you, sue the crap out of them.

How's about "I'll eat that pastry if you share in the fun that follows by chugging some drain-o."


Receiving a qualified diagnosis of Irritable Bowel Syndrome is as useful as a Psychiatrist giving you a diagnosis of "Doesn't Think Right".

Are you kidding me? A science teacher and she thinks she knows about medicine?????? What an idiot. Yeah, because she had to do what, get a bachelor's in some sort of science and take a test for her credential? Last time I checked that doesn't make you a doctor. I hope your mom doesn't listen to her.

The teacher has friends with this disease supposedly. They don't worry about CC or crumbs. I'm not going to worry about their crumbs either. My mom told her my docotor wants me to be more careful. I told Mom my MD doesn't know much so I'm getting my info from U of Chicago Celiac Center. Gave Mom some of thier info. My Mom now thinks they are my docotor. If these experts tell me - them its right & her friend doesn't know. In your 80's, having a prestigous MD is worth bragging rights. Parents said they are happy to eat anything I make (don't have to keep eating if odd).
