My name is Erica, I was a small girl in Elementary when I was getting beat up and picked on. It went on everyday without stopping. I was terrified to go to school I hated it so much. I moved alot and no matter where I went I was always getting picked on. I remember everything that happen even the people who did it to me. I was one of the kids that would sit in the back of the room hoping no one could see me. Hoping they would just leave me alone so I could go about my own things. I never had any friends back then. I remember everything they called me, Flat face, big nose, and even things you would never think an elementary kid would say. I even tried telling an adult about it but it made things worse for me so I never told anyone anything anymore after that. Boys would actually beat me up, the girls just stayed out of it for the most part besides calling me names. By the time I hit 5th Grade I started to cut myself. I started in the palms of my hands then it went all over my body. I did it for many many years after that. I even still have dreams about it happening to me to this very day. I hated myself so much I actually started to do drugs. I got to the point were I had over dosed on pills 3 times! Somehow I was saved every single time. I was terrified to tell anyone what was happening to me because I thought things would just get worse. When I got into middle school I was still being bullied but this time I had enough of it and I started to fight back. I did not care about anything anymore back then because I was so numb from everything that had happened to me and all the drugs I was on. I got into so much trouble and ended up hurting my parents more then anything. Now that the years have past I am better but it still hurts to this very day. Please whatever you do, don't give up and never stop believing in your self.
