Within the last few months I have been going through some very traumatic events in my life. As a freshman in college and being my second semester, I thought I knew everything i could possibly learn about handling myself, but that just was not the case.

Semesters later, I am still being bullied and teased by peers and straiht up jackasses who hang around my group of friends. It is not okay and it is not fun to be bullied. I get bullied about the literal dumbest things.

The form of bulling that these people take on are name calling, harassing phone calls even though I never once gave any of them my cell phone number, impersonating my friends so they can get through to me, and tag teaming conversations about things that I do when I am near them.

If anybody is bullied, it is okay to rant on and rage, but only when it becoes necessary. I would tell my parents, siblings, and friends about what was happening and nobody seemed to be able to understand me. They were all saying "just get over it"and "you need to be stronger because right now all you do is whine and complain like a weakling and you don't do anything for yourself about it". The truth is though, I have been trying to find the perfect therapist for months so I can talk out my problems without the fear of being judged, made fun of, critisized, or teased. 

It came to the point where the bullying got so bad that I actually attempted suicide at my age, 18. I tried to overdose on pain killers, and it worked for about 20 minutes until I actually threw them up. I told my friends that they were good to me but my time here on Earth was not worth staying. It made me realize after that I do have people who love me and care deeply for me and my safety. MY best friend who lives in a completely different state actually saved my life. She called my parents and her mom frantic and would not give up on me until I was okay. Even the next day she was calling me and texting me things that she knew would make me feel better.

Just talking things out with someone who actually cares saved my life. For any of you reading this story, and are thinking of suicide, my experience has taught me that it really is not worth it. Things really will get better for you, I promise. If you ever just want to vent out your feelings or frustrtiions, my email is in my bio and you can always contact me through it. I will always respond to you. If you don't want to talk, just please for me, call the suicide hotline number at 1 (800) 273-8255. This is the National Suicide Prevention Hotline and they are available 24/7 and have people who speak both English and Spanish. They also have a website, www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org which you can also reach them at.
