From 1st grade through 6th grade, I was bullied by students and teachers. It had gotten to the point where I would come home crying every day because they made me feel stupid, worthless, useless, etc. The teachers would punish me just for getting confused on assignments and quizzes. They would also get in my face, yell at me, and they would verbally & emotionally abuse me. My math teacher even almost backed me into a corner once just because I got an answer on a test incorrect, and that’s just to name a few incidents.
Ever since being taken out of that specific public school 4 years ago, I’ve been suffering from nightmares, flashbacks, and anxiety attacks relating to my traumatic experiences. I’m reminded of the pain I felt so many years ago every. single. day. I just want the bad memories to stop… I wish they would just go away… but they won’t.
