I was born with a rare disability called Dandy Walker Syndrome. I was bullied first in first grade. I thought nothing of it. All through elementary school I thought nothing of it. When middle school hit, I was still being bullied. I thought that if I looked different in a cooler way, people would like me. So I turned emo. When I was in eighth grade, that's when I started having suicidal thoughts. When middle school ended, I thought the bullying was over. Then high school hit. In high school, that's when the suicidal thoughts became actions. I tried committing suicide about nine times now. Fortunately, I started being home schooled in the middle of my junior year, I am no longer emo, but I still am a cutter. When I say I tried committing suicide, I tried EVERYTHING. Drowning, overdosing, hanging, cutting, shooting, you name it, I tried it. I made zero friends at my school. I was being bullied so severely, and NOBODY did anything about it. But as I said, I am being home schooled now, I actually have friends now, I am no longer emo, I am still a cutter, but I am getting help and seeing a counselor. Still, it sickens me that anyone can be okay with the fact that someone is bullying someone else so much that they harm themselves. Bullying needs to stop, and it needs to stop NOW.
