In 8th grade a new kid came to my school. Me and him got close. Durin freshman year he kept askin me to send him pictures. Eventually I gave in and sent him some, but what I didn't know till about a week later is that he saved them and sent them around. a couple weeks later I took a ton of pills hopin end it all. The pills didn't work and had to deal with it all. I never told anyone cause I was so ashamed and I tried to deal with it on my own. Eventually it faded away, they found other things to talk about, and I started datin a guy. By Christmas my sophomore year we were still together and he bought me a promise ring. He joked and on one knee pretendin to propose, but when people found out they started a new topic to gossip about. People started sayin I was pregnant and that spread through all the grades. I was so embarrassed cause my brother was a senior and I know that even senior class was talkin about it, but worse than that I was told my best friend since 4th grade started the rumor. I remember at one of my basketball games some guys taunted me and I had to pretend I didn't hear them. At the same time a girl on my team announced to her health class that I was a whore. I just remember everyday seeming to last forever, not wanting to go to school, and wanting it to be over everyday. That summer I tried to hang myself but my dad walked in my room and saw. I felt so damaged and I didnt let myself trust people. But now I'm graduating in a month and ill be getting ready for college. I'm better now and everything's fine. I have to thank soccer for that, my team and the game keep me happier than I've ever been. Bein on the varsity team all 4 years has made me feel accomplished and has given me a new family. No one should have to deal with bullying or feel the need to end the pain. I'd love to help and talk to anyone I can. You are not alone
