Growing up, I was a normal girly girl who got along with everyone and never had problems making friends. When I hit middle school, I began to gain weight and that's where everything changed. I began to be bullied by kids at school and from the neighborhood. I remember being told to move my fat ass one day at school. That day became one of the most memorable days of my life. I decided I would loose weight. I began starving myself which then developed into bulimia. The bulimia took over my life. I became extremely ill and could have killed myself because of it. Now 4 years later, I have been in treatment for bulimia for 6 months and am realizing that this will be apart of my life forever. My body has sustained permanent damage. I hate the thought that I am not the only one who has had to go through this. Bullying has to stop! It's time that people acknowledge that bullying is an epidemic that is effecting every town and school around the world.
