    We are both thankful for the prayers and encouragement. My wife has more meetings with people tomorrow; I'll be able to update you more then.

    Thank you all.

    She talked with three people today who were very supportive, and quite cross with the way she has been treated. They offered some helpful suggestions ie: talk to Human Relations (Personnell) about the situation, and to the Occupational Health doctor.

    The manager of her unit was compassionate, listened carefully to what my wife had to say and responded with "Why didn't you come to me sooner with this?" My wife responded that the person harrassing her, her immediate supervisor, had said not to say anything about it to anyone else. It will be interesting to see where that goes.

    Now to top it all off, she pulled a muscle in her back over the weekend, so her doctor signed her off work for two weeks. :dontknow:

    I'm just glad God is really in control, whether we remember that or not.

    Thanks again for the prayers, all. Will continue to keep you posted.

    Thanks again, all, for the prayers. My wife just asked if I could put this update on the thread:

    Could you please pray that this would be a profitable meeting and that the bullying, intimidation, and personnel mismanagement would come to light and be dealt with. That the right people would be at that meeting who would present a balanced, true view of my wife and the situation. At the very least that this supervisor would get off my wife's case.

    I will continue the prayers as well, BlackEagle.

    And to any that read that insulting and belittling message before I got it deleted:

    Christ was very clear that we are to come to God in prayer over EVERYTHING, not just life-and-death issues. In fact, we are to pray "without ceasing".

    Many thanks for the prayers all;

    Will keep you-all updated as things develop.

    My wife is watching this and is encouraged by the responses here.

    Terry, thanks. I didn't see the post.

    BlackEagle, I hope the best for you and your wife. Its a difficult thing when work goes that direction. We do spend a large portion of our lives out in the world earning money for neccesities and entertainment to enjoy our one shot at life. I think its a shame when coworkers/bosses act like that. God Bless You and Your Family :)

    Sorry to chime in here so late - I went through a similar situation that lasted three years or so. It's a hard thing to endure. The hardest thing for me was learning to forgive them 70X7. Once I learned that, and it was difficult, the situation seemed to get better and better.

    I'll be praying for you and yours.

    All, thanks for the ongoing prayers.

    My wife had a good meeting Thursday with her supervisor's boss and several other people.

    The upshot of the meeting is that, as much as possible, the problematic supervisor will not be on the same shift pattern as my wife and there will be some other changes that should make the work environment better.

    Things seem to be resolving themselves now. It's not all over yet, but is closer to being done.

    My wife has been greatly encouraged by reading this thread and by your prayers and says a big thank you to all.
