Just wanted to say my son gets bullied very badly at school and I feel terrible that there’s nothing I can do. I bought your book and my son was in tears reading it because he goes through very similar things. Great book and thank you for writing it, it will help many children and families.
There’s this boy in my class that always says he’s going to kill me. I never did anything to him. I don’t want to die. In only 13 and want to be able to grow up someday and get married. I hide from him all the time but its scary because he’s in my 4th hour and he sees me at lunch and picks on me. Help me please.
High school fat ass, that’s my name too. I just started 10th grade about a month ago, and I’ve stolen my grandfather’s whiskey twice. I don’t know why I can’t be treated like a normal person. I am the same on the inside as everyone else. I love God. I go to church every Sunday and sing in the choir, I do things for God but every night I pray to him that I can go through school tomorrow and not be called “whale girl,” or “fat bitch.” God hasn’t listened yet, but I won’t stop trying. Someday I’ll be OK, I have faith.
I am Paul from South Africa, I want to tell everyone bullying is not just an issue in America. Here in South Africa it’s a big issue. I come from a very poor family and get bullied all the time just because I don’t have name brand clothes or the new gadgets. I’ve dropped out of school for a period of time because the bullying was so bad I could not concentrate. I hope this issue is resolved soon. It is ruining lives.
Hello High School Fat Ass, I wanted to write to you and tell you my story. According to the majority of my school I am a “fat piece of crap.” I have no friends because it’s true, I AM a fat piece of crap. The bullying is so bad that I’m failing most of my classes because I am so scared to even go, I may not even graduate. I have done nothing wrong to others but get treated like this because something I cannot even control. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and the reason those meds don’t work is because I get so depressed from school that all I do at home is eat junk food, but that’s just a temporary fix. I hope to be better someday, until then I’m in the same boat as you and every one else here suffering from bullying.
Hi, I’m Melanie from Texas and just wanted to say my best friend just killed herself because she got bullied. I am very sad and would take her place in a second, she was so nice and never said a bad word about anyone. She wanted to be a veterinarian. The worst part is because all of the “cool kids” bullied her, no one got in trouble. Personally, I think every one that made fun of her or called her “fat” just be accused of murder.
I am writing on behalf of my daughter. She came home crying from school multiple times a week and everytime I asked her whats wrong she shut me out. After asking a few other parents I heard it was a bullying issue and tried to confront her about it and I got nothing. I was told about this site from a co-worker and mentioned it to my daughter. Although it didn’t completely solve her bullying issue, it made her talk to me about it and she told me she was less embarrassed to talk about knowing that every one of these posts are of kids going through the same thing. So I just wanted to say thanks.
Greetings from Australia. I would like to share that I am very over weight and get bullied daily. it is very difficult to accept and like some others on this site I have contemplated physical harm. I looked to rugby to unleash my anger but I also get bullied there for being slow. I want to quit the team and my schooling but I know my parents would never have it and be disappointed in me. What they don’t realize is that I am disappointed in my life, my path, and my bullies. I can never be happy getting called those things, and unless we can stop the bullying I guess I will be unhappy forever.
Everyday I feel like killing myself. The bullying is too much and the pressure to fit in is just unbearable. I have went as far as putting a loaded guns worth of pills in my mouth but was too scared to swallow. Maybe it was a good day? By good I mean better than headbutting my wall and cutting open my forehead like what happend a few weeks ago. I am thankful for websites like this that truly allow people from all likes of the world to discuss thier bullying problems and issues. Sometimes a public forum is better than a psychologist and It’s cheaper too. Thanks High School Fat Ass, in some way I think you saved my life.
Hey guys Im Carla and my dad is a bully to me. He calls me fat ass, and lard butt even when we’re in public. It makes me very sad and depressed and I actually started smoking cigarettes because of it. I can barely make it through my day without crying but I have no where else to go because im only 15. Please help.
My name is Mike and I wanted to share my story.
I was literally minutes away from killing myself from bullying. Knife in one hand and a bottle of pills in the other. I was so tired of getting called a fat ass every day of my life. I wimped out and just stole some liquor out of my dad’s cabinet. I was very sick and hungover the next day and I spent the whole day in bed thinking of ways to change. I tried alot of things including hard drugs but all it takes is a little dedication. I gave up soda and chips and drank a crap load of water and power ade zeros. Chips turned into kale chips and pork rinds. I am down 80lbs in one year and can actually smile now. I feel for any obese kid, but don’t worry, it can get better.
HIGH School Fat Ass, thank you for this website. My child is obese as you once were and comes home in tears from school because of bullying. I let him read some entries here and I believe it’s helped him a bit knowing that he’s not the only one dealing with this tragic issue. I believe one day you will help resolve our nations bullying problems.
Thank you again, Jeannie.
