One thought on “Back to School Bullies

  • August 24, 2015 at 9:09 pm

    Sad that this is still going on with all the anti-bullying talk these days. My kids get bullied at school, a lot is said, but nothing gets done. They are seeing counselors of course.

    I was bullied badly in school many years ago. I already had an undiagnosed mental illness (bipolar, diagnosed years later, but quite active even then). Together with the bullying, I started to self harm (yes boys do it too), became suicidal and made plans to kill myself. I still remember making the plans, and what they were, I don’t remember what stopped me. Basically school was non-stop horror until I got to college.

    Now I see this repeating with my kids, and the school doesn’t seem to be able to stop it.
