Have I got a right to be pissed off?

I live in a sheltered living complex and we have staff here supporting us paid by social services, this particular member of staff I like but something he did upset me the other day and I don't know whether to pursue it further with management.

I live in a large terrace house directly on the road, the other other day I had my window open and heard somebody quickly knock on the door so I stuck my head out the window and heard this member of staff (he has a very distinctive voice) say to other person 'that'll set (my name) paranoia off, hahaha' I didn't hear what he said after that.

Am I making a mountain out of a mole hill? Should I tell management because it is a breach of confidentiality... I like the guy but feel pissed off at the same time.

He should not be taking the piss out of someone with Paranoai no way especially given his job roll, I would report his Arse but then he might only get a slap on the arse and you will have to put up with his mind games and it could make your Paranoia Worse.

What about confronting him and asking him not to do that again???? might be a better way to go!

Yeah 'mind games'. Its true. I have a psychiatric outpatient meeting in a couple of weeks with everybody there including the house manager of this property , I might mention what he said in front of everybody and see if the manager can wiggle out of it this time, the same manager who called another tenant a F-ing moron while ending a mobile phone call to a support worker while me and my housemate were sitting at the table, we could hear her on and loud as day.... And they wonder why I'm paranoid!

Raise this issue in your outpatient appointment where you have witnesses to your complaint, have it documented and followed up. This is totally unacceptable behaviour taking place within your home and you have every right to be upset. These workers are in a position of power which cannot be abused. Good luck and let us know how you get on :goodluck:

Well its up to you what you do, but for anything much to happen the incident needs to be reasonably serious and you.will want to have evidence supporting your accusation.

If it was me I'd let an offhand comment about paranoia slide or bring it up direct with the person.

Having lived in shared environment before, I try to make peace with others unless a matter is quite serious.

This was not nice and very wrong of him. You have a good reason to be angry. I dont think you need to report this unless it happens again though.
