As @stormdancer saying it, do not put up with this rubbish. You are already did your best, tasking your companions and I bet you did explain your situation to them already too. If things won’t settle within this coming week, submit an official grievance form to your manager. Do not be afraid to go official about being bullied. Do NOT quit your job.
Like you, as well as myself, we did worked very hard for years to get up the levels and get higher earnings. Especially, now when a good position is hardly around and starting out again is getting harder. Do not give up your position, or job. That will not be your solution. I stayed, and turned off 4 job interviews. I did well for doing that. Moral lifted at work by HR , while I was sick and I am very happy that I listened to my guides, (not knowing what was taking effect in my absence), didn’t quit my job.
Try to be strategic. I know that is especially hard when you already suffering from emotional stress and bullies. But you do have an advantage over them with your spirit companions.

Also, I am so relieved to see how kind and supportive everyone is here. My initial post may have seemed a bit garbled and rushed. I guess I am just used to online forums like Reddit, where the first thing commenters will do is tear you apart and try to insinuate that somehow I brought the circumstances upon myself. Perhaps I did ultimately by working there, but I will say that while I am in no ways perfect, this particular situation literally came out of nowhere. I was, and still am astounded, that something so petty caused such a big row. Everyone who knows about it tells me to be the bigger person and that she is obviously insecure and blah blah, but I am very tied of being a doormat for people to treat so poorly. We have a rather small staff and the tension it creates is very noticeable.
I will be more patient. I am looking to better my life, but it is tough since I have worked hard to reach a level of pay that will support me and it's hard to find something similar. But you are all right, eventually a change is needed to make my life better. I know I shouldn't expect so much out of my spirits so quickly, I guess I took other people's experiences to heart a little bit. I'll try to improve my communication and relationship with them. Maybe my doubts are clouding my perception.
