Hi, I am Jenn, I am 16 years old, turning 17 in July 8th. Since Grade 1 I have always been picked on. Been named called, been called all the names under the sun that you can possibly think of. I am now in grade 11. I still get bullied. I have now finally been diagnosed with Bipolar, Depression, Anxiety. Being bullied isn't very nice. I struggle keeping friendships and relationships. I am medicated and getting help each week. Being bullying has led me to many different complications in my life such as, wanting to end my own life, wanting to self harm myself. In my darkest times, I lock myself away from everyone, I stop talking to people and push loved ones and close ones away from me. I don't handle being bullied. I can write student staatements after student statements and nothing yet get's done. I am starting to get annoyed with being bullied. I will admit it I have been a bully myself but that is because I went by the old rule of "treat others how you want to be treated". If people want to bully me and then I had always thought I would bully them back to see how they felt when it happened to them. It didn't work, nothing I tried worked. I guess over the years many, many, many people have told me, that all I have to do is just ignore them. The more you ignore them then the more they will get sick of picking on you. I don't see how that works. So I guess my advice for people who are going through the exact same thing as to what I am, just know your not alone. There are people out there who are willing to listen and help you. I see a psychologist and a pasychiatrist each week and I find it helps me being able to talk about the issues that occur. So please go get some help! Maybe try these hotlines: Kids Helpline - www.kidshelp, e-headspace - www.eheadspace.org.au, lifeline - www.lifeline.org.au or you can go see your nearest GP. Don't ever think your alone. I really hope this inspires people and helps people with the same amount of problems with bullying as to what I have.
