Thanks Willful. In the absence of Dr. Bob's intervention, the community standing with someone who is under siege is very effective. There is something about a respectful but strong and unified multi-voiced objection that diminishes the impact of a verbal bully. It sure worked in my case... it's what made it possible for me to continue forging ahead to get the help I needed.
