Campaign: To encourage victims of bullying to stay strong

I was bullied in school because of my Tourette’s and Asperger’s syndrome.

 

It was like a nightmare and I would dread going in because I knew every day would be the same.

 

People would mock, laugh at me and just generally single me out.

 

It got so bad that I had to be home-schooled, but it didn’t end there.

 

I started getting death threats over the phone and loads of abuse on social media.

 

I stayed strong and got past it, but there were times when I thought I couldn’t do it anymore.

 

I’m working with Fixers to show others who’ve experienced bullying to stay strong no matter how bad the situation gets - things do get better.
