I used to have lots of friends. We would hang out all the time. But the something happened. I don't know what exactly, I just know we fell apart. That's when things started to get bad. Really bad. It started with some messages, people from school and complete strangers started sending messages telling me how disgusting, or how stupid I was, or how I should just kill myself. My mom saw one of the few messages that wasn't as bad as some of the others. She called the cops (In our state you have to report cyber bullying to them first) He said that he didn't see anything threatening about it and to just talk to the school. So we did talk to the school. It didn't do any good either. All my principle said was "We'll try and talk to them" After that, it wasn't just my friends harassing me online but the whole school. Kids would moo or oink at me when I walked past them in the lunch room. When I walked into my classes people would shout "Earthquake!" and everyone would hide under their desks. I would get tripped and shoved against lockers. Girls would corner me in the bathroom and spit on me or act as if they were going to punch me and laugh when I flinched. Over the summer, I stayed at home as much as possible. It was a small town with only one middle school and one high school so I was scared to run into anyone over summer. Finally, my mom talked to my dad about him asking his boss for a job transfer in the next town over. When my mom told me I cried in front of her not because I was sad but because I thought, "Thank god its over" but I still had to attend school there until we got the "Okay" from his new boss. On my very first day of high school, i got shoved into lockers and tripped. My principle said it was my fault for being "A defected part in the machine that is high school" That was how he put it. The next six weeks there were a nightmare. Finally we did move. It took me a while to trust anyone and make friends, but, I did. I have also lost weight (something that is now one of my biggest insecurities) and I no longer get sick at the thought of going to school. I know that when people say "It gets easier" it sounds like a lie but I can say from experience that things really do get easier. You just have to keep you head up and stay strong.
