I never really had a lot of friends to begin with. Then in 9th grade (started in August 2012) I started getting bullied by this one guy. He would do anything to make my day worse. By the time I finally told about the bullying, the pain was already there and the damage was done (November). I have also already self-harmed by then too. I had lost the few friends I have and then after the bully was suspended for three days, his older sister and friends started bullying me. I was fortunate enough that my principle and teacher's did the best they can to stop it, but the truth is the bullying never stopped till I made the decision to cyber school. So by the summer of 2013 when everything kind of stopped. But that 9th grade year, I self-harmed and was ready to kill myself. By April I started starving myself!I was called every name and believed every single thing I was told! Heck I was called slut and I never been kissed or had a boyfriend! I didn't know what I did wrong! I learned through that experience that my personality type is the type to take everything to heart and very sensitive. I always try to please everyone and hated making people feel bad. I went through counseling and can say I was clean and mentally better by July or August of 2013. But, it did take me a year. Then I was also fortunate to gain a best friend in January of 2013 who even though she is 5 years older than me, got me to speak up and gave me confidence I didn't have in myself. That girls is my rock, older sister, best friend, and my guardian angel. That year was a struggle for me but now, I can say am healthy. No one deserves to go what I went through and that is why I am using my voice now.
