It all started in grade 6, I no longer seemed to fit in with the other kids at school. I didn't understand why they started being so mean, they would call me names all day, they would poke and stare at me like I was a lab specimen, and it had just continued to get worse as the days went on. Then it got so bad that they would push me off the top of the play structure or push into it and laughing every time I yelled in pain. As I got older things seemed to have settled down when I started at a new school in grade 8. I thought "Hey new school, new people, new start." I was never more wrong in my life. the poking and staring turned into open mockery and tripping, they started to take my things and throw them down the halls. Come grade 10 I was getting tripped and hit and called very mean things, I had become a very angry person, my anger started to control my life and I never knew why I was so angry all of the time or at who or what. Finally grade 12 everything started off great until people started to return to their old habits, people even started ditching me at lunch. On a good day I would get ditched once, on a normal day I would get ditched two to four times, and on a bad day five to six times in a period of only one hour. It had gotten so bad that I had wanted revenge. But before that in grade 11 and some in grade 12 I had made 3 attempts at suicide and even gone into depression so bad that I was tired all of the time. Anyway, finally things are starting to turn around, some of my long time tormenters are even being nice to me. One day a group of them walked by and started using my lunch as a soccer ball, but one of the guys told them to stop and picked it up and gave it back to me. For all those being Bullied I say hang in there because there is a turning point and things will get better!
