I have worked in a well known supermarket chain for 18yrs, can't remember if I told them I had congenital hypothyroidism or not when I started. Having been hypo all of my life I have never known what it is to be 'normal' but when a colleague at work said I 'acted like a dope' when I was merely queuing and going through her checkout (about 15 years ago) it was the beginning of being aware of my condition and how people perceive me. I have been horribly bullied at work for years by people a lot younger than I am who think I am a complete idiot and I have been so slow in thinking that it was only relatively recently when I was seeing a psychologist that she told me I was being bullied and the penny dropped. I have been in so much trouble at work what with one thing and another where things have come to a head but bottom line is that I HATE it there. I would love to leave but can't and besides, in many ways it's a good little job I have but I feel so isolated and shy and fed up. Anybody else had similar experiences?
