I was bullied throughout second to fourth grade. After attempting suicide four times I demanded to be pulled out of school. The pain that the kids did to me caused my other three attempts. I was in the mental hospital for six days in March 2013 after the seventh attempt. I am medicated now and safe, but I wouldn't have gone through any of this if those kids hadn't bothered me. I am now a freshman and dealing with worse troubles, but this time I'm prepared to live with them.
