    Since the age of 12 I was made fun of. Why I would ask myself? Was I ugly, didn’t dress in the expensive clothes? I never understood the taunting of me. I would go on the bus and they would yell “sit down”. Was I slow in getting a seat? My mother heard it and did nothing about it. Did she not love me or care? when I would get to school the teasing would start. Names like scummy, loser, ugly…….was I these things? Did God make me into something ugly and disgusting? Then when I went home I would get yelled at about my homework and grades. Slapped around and god the yelling from everyone. I started to try and commit suicide from taking too much pills, eating rat poision, cutting my wrist, eventually starting to burn myself and drinking. It started to get worse in high school. I felt worthless, something that couldn’t be loved or love. Why, I must be that ugy, gross person that people would talk about. It must be true, people at school hate me and my mother did not love me. I went to the principle, that made it 100 times worse. So I got drunk and took a bunch of sleeping pills and went to school. I think someone seen me drinking and called the ambulance where I told them what I had done.

    Off I went to the hospital to get my stomach pumped. Then I seen my dad over me crying. “Why would you cry when you did nothing” I thought. I spent a month in a mental hospital. After I got out I refused to go back to that school. My mother was not helpful in getting me back and forth, I found my way. Things got better at the new school. No teasing and my mother let up on me. Did she feel guilty? Did my dad tell her to stop? Who knows, but now that I am older I don’t feel shy abou telling how I feel to you. I will not have people be mean to me. I have become more aggressive about how people treat me. I would say a “bitch”.

    I have children now and I have taught them to stand up for themselve and not take crap from people. If someone teasing you get up in there face and don’t back down. Don’t ever show signs of weakness, that’s what they feed off from. If you see someone being picked on stand up for them, don’t let them hurt. I can see why kids go and shoot up their schools. I thought about it alot. But when people don’t turn their backs and start helping that’s when it won’t happen.

    If you have been bullied dont’ give up on life. Get the courage to stand up to those who are hurting you. Go to an adult and tell them what is going on. Maybe start a non bullying zone at your school. Try every resource to help yourself. Don’t try to hurt yourself or others. Even thou people think that you are worthless, your not. They are.
