So I’m still getting teased at school, for self harm etc but today has been terrible bc of it. So basically if you’ve seen some of my other post you’ll know I have anxiety tics and today has been the worst day for my tics EVER! My tics literally threw a pencil across the room in tech and my vocal tics were rlly bad too. Like my tics said the n word and now I feel so so so guilty like I would never never ever say that!! Before today only my close friends knew abt the tics but obviously today they were rlly bad so people asked me abt it and now most of class know! So now my new nickname from my classmates is ticky Issy or tic girl. So now I’m getting teased bc of that as well as being suicidal, depressed and self harming, and me and my friend group are now being called the suicide squad. I’ve tried to ignore it but it’s rlly getting to me. What can I do?

Have you told teachers? (I know that’s a dumb thing to say, but just on the off chance there is a nice teacher out there). Have you told your parents? Maybe if you can get ‘evidence’ of some kind to give to the principle. I honestly have no idea how to help you I’m so sorry. I’m probably not even in the same country as you!

I’m so disappointed that people out there would bully someone who is broken, it’s disgusting and horrible and that’s what stops them from being human. You are amazing. Worthy. Smart. Beautiful. Brilliant. And so much more important than you think. I really really want to help you but I have no idea how. So if you eve want to talk and lean on someone, I’m here for you. No one should have to go through that hell. Please, just remember you are so much more than what they think. You are so special <3

Oh, an idea, my school has an ‘anxiety’ class, for kids like me with mental illnesses and stuff, where we can skip class, go there and just chill and study. The teachers help us by talking us through our problems :)
