My name is Marlene Trimble and I am 18 years old. When I was younger I believed what I was told, that nobody younger than you could be described as bullying and it couldnt happen if it was from a friend. I quickly found out that the assumption was wrong in the last few months as I finally realised that the person I counted as a friend was actually bullying me. It took the bullying to begin online before I finally realised. The person was having a fight with my best friend who was also friends with this person. She stood up to a post made about her online and I liked this as it was true and brave. I then began to be targeted by her. She sent me vicious and horrible messages via facebook and began to post stuff online about me. It was very upsetting and I couldnt handle it because it made me feel so sick. I never once sent her a nasty message, only defended myself as politely as I could. My sister told her to back off and it continued worse than before. She told people I had suicidal thoughts and I cried for hours because I dont want my mum or people close to me to worry about me. I reported her in school and she got up in my face and posted more stuff online, such nasty things. I received messages again, more hateful than the last and had to report them to my vice principal after I slit my wrists because I couldnt deal with the bullying anymore. It will get better though, I just know it will
