Doc- I'd like to answer these, if I may, as I am a pending medical whistleblower presently:

1. Who We Are
 2. Advice for Whistleblowers:

Know about law and statutes related to your industry. Learn what quid pro quo, kickback, reciprocity, and such words mean.
Learn about what is evidence and what is not. Overall, anything in writing is golden in a court of law. Emails, documents, and so forth.
Prepare for a long ride. Cases can exceed over 5 years, and it may wreck you and your career. Seek legal agents that will take your case on complete contingency, nd have had success with similiar lawsuits as yours in the past.

 3. Advice for Whistleblower Supporters: Know that some continue to bleed, yet are still thankful for your support.

 4. To Close for Comfort – Impact on Intimate Relationships: Impact, with whistleblowers, I think.

 5. The Spiritual Side of Whistleblowing: It varies between whistleblowers, I suppose. I had to blow the whistle because I could no longer tolerate what was occuring, so I guess it was a bit heroic.

 6. Telling Your Story Anonymously
Cannot, as it is under seal. Pharmaceutical Corporation- one of the top 5 in the world.

 7. How to be a Volunteer for Medical Whistleblower: Support is more important during the crisis of the whistleblower.

 8. Your Problem Solving Personality: Be persistent, and dig deep as you investigate, if you choose to be a whistleblower.

 9. Bullying in the Workplace: Happens the second you acknowledge you no longer wish to participate in the groupthink of the team

 10. Post Traumatic Stress – Psychological & Emotional Symptoms: Your emotions and stress continue to be exhausted from being in 5th gear during the process of whistleblowing.
 11. Post Traumatic Stress – Physical Symptoms: High blood pressure, unexplained physical pain.
 12. The Effects of Whistleblower Retaliation: Once a whistleblower, you are on what is called a PACER system. All future employers do background checks on you and discover you filed a civil lawsuit. You are then no longer a candidate. Retaliation is chronic unemployment.
 13. Grief & Loss: More for damaging the livlihood of my family more than me. That bothers me daily.
 14. Dissociation & Avoidance: Yes, your ego, confidence, and self-esteem have to be rebuilt, so you are and prefer to be alone often.
 15. Anxiety & Fear: Daily

 16. Depression & Social Isolation
Both are bad after blowing the whistle.
 17. Anger & Frustration: Yes, initially, but the whistleblower adjusts in time.
 18. Self-Esteem, Recognition & Self Fulfillment: Being rebuilt that takes years.
 19. Re-Traumatization & Betrayal of Trust: Not much of an issue with me.
 20. Drug Free Relaxation Techniques: Nearly impossible with me.

 21. Partners with Law Enforcement: My legal agents were chosen by me in Boston, as they had previous experience in the suit I wanted to file.

 22. Obstruction of Justice – Witness Intimidation: Not in my case
 23. Crime Victim’s Rights: They maintain their rights, clearly.
 24. Bridging Differences – Communication Cross Professional Disciplines: You divorice yourself from the vocation you performed as a whistleblower.

 25. Crossing the White Coat Barricade ?????
 26. Beyond the Wall of Silence – National Security Whistleblowers: Not my area, but read the last issue of Newsweek.

 27. Behind the Blue Line – Law Enforcement Whistleblowers: Whistleblowers are rare in any industry.

 28. Non-Violent Dissent perhaps.
 29. Medical Ethics: The apex of blowing the whistle for me.
 30. Mandated Reporters – Protection: It is a myth
 31. Mandated Reporters – Retaliation: It is a reality
 32. Mandated Reporters - Restorative Justice: Only time will tell.
 33. Mandated Reporters – Emotional Healing: I can only hope, but it continues
 34. Sexual Assault & Post Traumatic Stress: not applicable
 35. Sexual Harassment in the Workplace: Not applicable
 36. Medical Whistleblowers - Restorative Justice: Time will tell.
 37. Medical Whistleblower Case Advocacy: Difficult to determine
 38. Bad Faith Peer Review: Negative
 39. Medical Board Review: Not applicable
 40. Due Process & Bias in the Court: Absolutely.
 41. Hostile Psychiatric Examinations: Not yet

 42. The Disruptive Physician: Most are not.
 43. Allegations of “Impaired Provider”: Most are not.
 44. Substance Abuse & Treatment: They will not be ostrasized by me.

 45. Licensing Issues n/a
 46. Legislative Advocacy: Yes, they are beneficial. Taxpayers against Fraud, for example.
 47. Judicial Accountability: Dos not exist
 48. The Still Small Voice – Inner Light: Yes
 49. The Media: Plan B if the lawsuit is not intervened by the U.S. government.
 50. Obtaining Legal Assistance Do it on contingency only. If no one will do this, then you likely do not have a good case.
