Growing up for me was pretty rough. It all started in middle school. Someone who was once my friend turned on me when she joined up with two other girls who hated me. I rode the bus home with them, every time we would get off at our stop, they would throw rocks at me, call me names, chase me home. In school, they would always say I looked liked a gorilla and even told me to kill myself. Somehow I managed to fight through all of that. Even though I was cutting and even wanted to commit suicide. Finally, I stood up for myself and they never bothered me again. But once I entered high school, boys in my classes would make fun of me, I didn't have many friends, I just didn't fit in. For the first time, I talked to our schools depression counselor and my dad took me to our family doctor and I was put on 20mg's of celexa daily. But I stopped taking it and went back to cutting. This downward spiral lead to me dropping out of school, getting drunk to numb my feelings and keeping myself locked up in my room. Now, I'm still fighting my best. I'm currently on klonopin for anxiety, 1mg three times a day. And 20mgs of celexa every morning. I'm beginning to get better and move on from my past. After watching the Bully movie, I wanted to share my story and make sure everybody out there knows they are not alone and they never will be. Just keep fighting. You'll make it through.
