I have been following this site, as i have the same problem trust me i know how you feel. I have tried a lot of different things and so far no results for me either. I too am a pin cushion for my co-workers. I am seriously thinking of quitting my job before long to try to find one where i can work away from others. I have been in a factory for my entire adult life and it has been nothing but a misery for me. I had to endure it while i had kids and i couldnt let my wife down. Now that the kids are long gone and seems like my bo has gotten worse with age i think it time to get out. I dont think i will ever have a good paying job like this one again but i have had all i can take.
