How workplace bullying can ruin your health

In an article that discusses how widespread workplace bullying has become in Macedonia (a recent survey shows that 41% of workers say that they have been bullied at work), the author provides the following quote from a victim who describes the impact that her hostile work environment has had on her health and on her career:

“I have 15 years seniority over the human resources officer and the highest level of education. Eight years ago, I was the head of the department, but in the last two years I have been [systematically] demoted. Now I drink daily, take 10 pills, and have been referred to the neuropsychiatry patient clinic – all because of the pressure on me to perform in a new managerial structure at the organization where I work.” Declining to give her name for fear of retribution, 42-year-old A.S. says she doesn’t know what to do or where to complain.
