    academically I know I will need to play their game, but my #$%@&# brain is screaming "NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!" :banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:

    and that's why I have a T, and this forum.

    Try considering "the game" like kicking information. SAMPLE & OPQRST. You're giving people the information they need most, in short form, in a way they expect to hear, so they can process & act in the best way possible. It's not lying. It's assisting others in doing their job. Just because a field contains info you find irrelevant? Doesn't mean you just skip the field. They want that info? You give it to them.

    Forgive me. I tend to be pretty literal too and continue to amaze my T with how often I miss stuff that's obvious to other people. That incident sounds pretty legit to me. To ME, it's actually worse finding you need to defend yourself from someone who's, theoretically, on your side, than it is to be attacked by someone you might reasonably expect to attack you. If that happened at work (sounds like it did) doesn't it count? It's not acceptable for the source of the trauma to be a fellow employee? That sounds WAY beyond what I'd call bullying.

    If you were reacting to a threat that wasn't actually there, I'd say you probably already had PTSD when that happened. Like I said, I usually miss the nuances of any type of office politics, so maybe I'm missing something important here.

    that's exactly how I see it!!!!!

    The bullying and harassment came after the initial threat from the paramedic, because I reported (a.k.a. narc'd on) a co-worker. Not the done thing. I can leave those latter parts out, as much as I disagree with what happened, because they aren't ptsd worthy. The threat though? that was a game changer for me. In almost 15 years, it's the first time I actually felt unsafe at work. 18 months after my last shift there, I still feel unsafe, too unsafe to return to work there. My "regular" nightmare, is always this incident. They want bad calls and paramedic suicides, ok fine, I can do that too. Why can't I include this though, along with the other crap they want to hear?

    You'd better ask someone smarter than me, because that's exactly what I'd do.
