    I've recently returned to live in the place I grew up in since leaving my ex who was subjecting me to domestic violence. I was bullied at school, abused by my mother, and had other traumas and then had domestic violence for over a decade. What's in the local newspaper headlines? A girl at my old school (aged 13) is being bullied, poked, prodded, tripped up, followed home by a group of boys who are also cyber bullying her. Reading it I had a major panic attack, flashbacks, it was horrible. That school was full of asshole bullies 20 years ago and has fresh ones now and a fresh victim :( my heart goes out to her, she, like I - has no evidence of the bullying so the police can't do anything. I feel sick, disgusted, and angry as hell. I wish I could help her. I hate that such humans exist. In a way, it's kind of validating too, but it's mostly making me sad and angry.

    I am so, so sorry, CJ. It's awful. I am praying for that little girl and for you. Don't know what else I can do.

    Thank you Hodge, that really means a lot to me. That school was hell and I thought maybe it would have improved. That poor girl. :cry:

    Grrrrrrrr........

    I hear ya'. Bullied much of my life, too. I remember reading about somewhere in a big city some folks started volunteering to walk kids home because of the bullies and such. While that's a great thing to do to help protect some of the kids, as long as it's closely monitored as to who is doing the volunteering, of course, it still doesn't hold the folks accountable for the bullying behavior, nor does it prompt those who can readily enact change to do anything more about it. It's one of my major trigger trippers, too.

    Well f*ck...

    Where is the short-tempered neighbour with a shotgun that is ready to take law into his own hands when you need him!?

    I've had lots of such fantasies throughout the years of bullying. But you know, I never really had people who saw it and understood it much.

    Just thinking, with all that energy going into anger and sadness, could something else, more useful, be done?

    From what I know about england/UK in general (which is mainly the experiences of some Londoners), people are at quite the distance from others there.

    But here it would be sorta normal to approach such a person.

    Yeah, we're cold towards each other here, wary. I guess if I could speak to the girl and or her mother I'd ask if she can move schools..she apparently is lonely at the school already anyway (exact same as I was). I'm angry that the school still does nothing to help the victims of bullying and denies it's even happening. The girl is self harming regular because of it and they're denying the bullying is happening?!?

    Schools in general will try to deny any bullying, trying to save their reputations and so on.

    Went through the same shit.

    I hear a mother abusing her toddler through my apartment wall 3-4 times a week. Talk about triggering. I have reported it several times to autorities, but nothing can/or is done. I offered to let them sit in my apartment and listen through the wall, like i hear it, but no one took me up on it. I guess i am a wacko to them??? I paly music through the wall to comfort the crying child....If i can hear her, then she can hear the music from me, right?

    I wish I had been there. I had quite the reputation at my school and used to scare the bullies to death...didn't matter, group of 5 sure no problem I'll watch every one crumble when I confront them. People would actually run through HS looking for me when a girl got hit by her boyfriend or a group was bullying a friend of a friend..or...etc...I'd have helped you...Nobody deserves to fear for their physical,emotional, psychological self. Sorry lil...
