My name is Lisa Anne Chasten....I have been through every form of abuse that anyone can ever imagine, starting at the age of 7 years old. Then when I started going to school I started being bullied for being the foster child...the child in clothes that don't fit or smell good..the one that no mom or dad wanted ....I already acted shy and withdrawn because of the childhood abuse,rape,and attempts on my life. I went from home to home and school to school...I have been shoved into lockers, had rumours spread about me, called nasty names, been beaten by classmates,even picked on by school administrators even told by the adults in my life that were supposed to protect me that I was white trash and that I was worthless...this mindset has followed me into adulthood...I wind up with men who beat me and alot of adults in my life make fun of me and pick on me everyday...I don't know how to make the cycle stop...but I'm learning because my son is autistic ..lower spectrum Asperger's syndrome...he gets bullied sometimes too...he has had to start over at a new school every year since kindergarten...he is now in 5th grade...he said he is sick of changing schools and being the new kid at school...so I NEED to learn how to stop the bullying for me so I can help stop the bullying for my son Kaleb! I am always trying to reach out and help those who can't protect themselves....but I must learn how to protect my family and I from bullies!! I am so honored to be apart of the Bully Project!! Thanks for taking the time to read my story!
