My freshman year of high school, I had met some friends online and we began video chatting. One of them flirted with me and I flirted back. I found out he had a girlfriend, but he told me they were nothing serious and he didn't like her that much. I told myself, if he doesn't care then why should I. So we continued talking, and eventually she found out. Her and I attended the same high school, she was two grades above me and I never got the end of it from her and her friends. They would spread rumors about me, constantly call me, scream at me in the hallways, threaten to fight me, throw things at me, "pretend" like they were going to run me over with their cars, and even spit on me. I got to the point where if my phone started to ring, I would start shaking uncontrollably and felt sick to my stomach, just from the anxiety of always thinking that I'm going to be yelled at. This continued on into my sophomore year, which is when I ended up getting suspended from school for sticking up for myself when getting confronted by the girl in the hallway. Even though she graduated, I ended up switching schools for my junior year (this year) just to try to forget about it all and put it behind me. Even though the couple broke up, the drama still isn't over, because she won't let it go. And its taken some time, but my anxiety has gotten a lot better.
