Just a TW for what I'm about to say. I'm looking for support about SA I guess. A male coworker had said creepy things to me and had touched my back and body in a way I didn't like. I tried to tell myself to stay strong but I'm really struggling with it. I'm struggling feeling safe at work too and I was already not doing well. Does anyone have any advice or coping mechanisms for me? I'm also going to finally tell a management at my job about it and I'm super nervous about it..
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Ps. I already struggle with PTSD and this has made it a lot worse.
Message me, I have some things to share but would rather not post it publicly because of the sensitive nature
Please, please please do tell management about it so they can make a report to HR about i.
If he's doing it to you, he may be doing it to other female co-workers. I also found out a loud but firm "Don't." will also stop them if they're attempting to touch you due to past SH in the work force, and im anxiety ridden, so i tend to freeze too. I don't under stand how people touch others for no reason too and then make everyone else uncomfortable. Just don't touch people without their permission. How is that hard for people?
Im sorry you had to deal with that hun. If a man did that to me in my current life, He'd be throw chopped.
thank you, what you said is really helpful. I will be talking to someone about it now.
I do freeze up and it's hard for me in the moment to day something. I did shut down the creepy comments bc I was feeling done with the whole situation. I cant help but feel like I could've done more to stop it but ik that's not how it works..
