Imagine being afriad to go to school every day. Trying to fake illness after illness just so you don’t have to show up. Teachers can’t help, they’re one of the problems; friends ca’t help, you have none. This is basically my life - and has been for a long long time now.
The ones who I called “friend” act like I don’t even exist. I’m being exiled by the whole school because of them. I can’t move schools because of two reasons: my parents can’t afford it and they don’t seem to notice something is going wrong there…
A diverse range of different teachers have insulted and humiliated me. I’ve been called things like stupid and idiotic, to being called a lazy git. (Anyone know what a git is?) Teachers have told me that I should have been drowned as a baby, that I have no purpose in life and that it would be easier if I ended mine now. I don’t know if they mean it, or if they’re trying to “motivate” me. It’s not working if it’s the latter.
The social side of school is my least favourite. I’ve been completely isolated and excluded by all the students - from grade seven to grade twelve. This is the result of one girl who is my ex best friend. She’s been making up all kinds of stories about me and spreading them around. I hate it, and I hate her.
I just need a wise word of advice….
