Thumbs down I wish we could still use this forum to ask for advice

I got my dream job almost exactly a year ago. And itís become a nightmare. I was really proud and on my way to financial security, but I may have to quit for my mental health. The technical, intellectual, and physical aspects are challenging and I am performing at a high level...but a lot of people donít like my personality because I donít talk enough, Iím not outgoing, but Iíve offended people by asserting my opinion on how standards should be raised. I hired 3 people in the last year and they are high performers and nice people who respect me. Many people outside my department who have the ear of the ceo are talking shit about me and are trying to gaslight me into thinking I suck and itís kinda ruining my life. I donít really know what to do about it. I have such bad social anxiety, I try to talk and stick up for myself and end up having a mini panic attack and crying. Which is interpreted as me not having my shit together.

Also, someone was shot behind my house the other day by a group of teens who got away, then a day later I was driving home from work rounded a corner and heard gunshots. I missed being in the middle of a gun fight by about 2 minutes. I was more calm and measured during all that than at work when I got an email from someone that questioned how I was spending my time.

Anyway thanks for listening old message board. Iíll be 40 in July, fuck.

Thanks, appreciate the response. Since posting this, I found out a lot more about whatís behind all the drama, and I understand a lot more about everyoneís behavior now. Resolved some conflicts, but basically coming to terms with the fact I should probably move on to a healthier environment because the drama is ingrained in the culture and I donít have the power to change other peopleís perspectives. Now I know itís nothing I did, Iím literally being judged based on problems I didnít create, other peopleís past behavior, and straight up imaginary problems.

Anyway jobs suck, I dunno why itís so hard to find a workplace where people arenít dicks. Prob gonna have to start my own biz.

They sure do. Iíve been dealing with a narcissistic woman at my job. It isnít so easy to ignore her. Plus, we are nurses so her actions affect human beings. She is a terrible person.

That sucks. Some people get so wrapped up in their personal identities at work. Iím just like can we please just do our jobs? This one woman was a friend and I knew she talked mad shit about other people, so I shouldíve known sheíd do the same to me eventually. But sheís ďpopularĒ, and kinda curates social activities, and Iíve been excluded since I got promoted, which is sad. But I just have to get over it. I pissed her off at some point probably because I took away some of her duties because her work was too inaccurate, it was just unacceptable to me and the previous supervisor hated it too but never did anything about it. She just doesnít think any of her mistakes are a big deal, one or two ok, but it was like 40% of the time. Thatís too many mistakes! Geez! Iím not mean because I wanted clerical errors to stop happening so often.
