Have you ever been bullied?
I've been hospitalized numerous times in high school for various things such as: extreme sunburn from being duct-taped (naked) to the football upright all day long, being put in a trash can and rolled down the bleachers, I've had to be medicated and have my stomach pumped due to ingesting whatever I was getting a swirly in, been hung upside down from the auditorium catwalks, etc....
Damn, I almost forgot my favorite one: I had my leg run over because I ran...
Thats horrible. I'm left wondering what was the root cause.
Not really. I've had some jerks say rude things to me but it's never been repetitive, and never really physically.
All my life. My mother was. I married one.
In middle school, there was a guy that sat behind me. He would flick my ear. I made it known for him to stop. I even stood up and made a scene one time. Told him if he did it again, he would be the one leaving next time. And I walked out of the class. I had it. A few days later he did it again. I turned around and busted him in the face with the text book. He had bloody nose. I meant what I said. I meant business. The next day he was switched out of the class.
Thanks for sharing your past experience.
