I really can't believe this is something that is ritually practiced. I just found out about this today and it is the very thing that has been happening to me for the past 3 years ever since I worked at this nuclear powerplant a year and a half ago and I ended up resigning and became homeless because of it. Is there anyway I can talk to you? russwtr27@hotmail.com.
