In elementary school, I was bullied, sexually abused by boys, and ashamed and physically spanked, while told to bend over in a dress by a male teacher in front of my class.. The boys would wait for me in hiding and attack. I was teased as to what i wore, as we were not rich, I was called names, and had few friends.I was even stabbed in the arm once, by a boy with a lead pencil! I spent a lot of my recesses in the Library, alone. I did speak about it to my parents and it was addressed to the Principal, and that Teacher was suspended for 2 weeks, but then returned, and never touched me again!,but the assaults and teasing by the boys did end up continuing. I lived in fear and tremendous stress.. It wasn't until i went to high school that it stopped.Actually I became a little popular, but that again led to trouble. Even negative attention, was attention, and has affected throughout my life, in some form.
