I have this situation: I suffer from PTSD and have many triggers especially mainly bullies or retaliation.
In the place where I work there is a person who has been bullying me for awhile. This was perceived by me as a trigger, but in my situation I find it really difficult to talk with appropriate manners since it overwhelms me with rage. This is not counting the amount of stress that induce in me and the lack of sleep, etc. All things that make it more difficult for me to speak appropriately.
I've read posts here about how to handle similar situations but I did it too late, since I did what most of those post strongly recommend to avoid doing. One day with apparently no reasons, after a night of no sleep, because of another very stupid joke he said to me, I went to talk to him in the workplace face to face and I used foul statements because I was trembling for hours before I decided to do this.
I spoke with my supervisor about this since he has hints about my situation, but I have been told that I must learn how to talk with people. I cannot talk normally with people in these situations. I know that now the thing is escalating against me due to what I said.
I don't know how to handle this. I like my workplace and many of my colleagues, but I'm thinking about quitting before further escalations since I do not know how to act.
Can anyone give me some advice? Have you dealt with similar situations? Can you help me to understand the outcomes of this?
