My Story Has Touched Hearts In Virginia, Oklahoma, Idaho, Kansas, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, And More. I Want Ellen To Read This.My name is Kia O'Donnell, I am 15 years old. I oppose bullying. I have been bullied for about the last 8 months.
I was new to a different school, my first thought was to make friends as soon as possible. Well, I did. I got in with the wrong crowd. I changed to "fit in" with them. I did things I never thought I would. I met a guy, a guy who was about 4 years older than me. We started talking, and eventually became a "thing" this wasn't the crowd that I wanted to be in, but it was the crowd that I thought would only accept me. I fell head over heals for this guy, knowing age did matter, but not caring. I gave up my virginity to him, hoping he would stick around after and be everything we talked about being. Well to make a long story short, he didn't. I got multiple unknown phone calls, calling me a "****", telling me I was only a one night stand to him, I was ugly, fat, I needed to kill myself, and etc. A twitter page was made about me. It was called "I hate Kia" The tweets were horrible. They told me to drink bleach and lay in a corner and die, they told me I was gross, I was a "****", and multiple other nasty things. I was lying to my mom to stay the night with him, telling her I was other places. Eventually a friend called my mom and informed her of what I was doing, and whom I was doing it with. At first I hated my friend for doing this, for telling my mom. But in the end I knew it was only to protect me. Well soon enough, I had no friends. I would get shoulder checked in the hall way, they would tweet about me, text me mean things, and talk bad and make fun of me at school. I have thought about suicide many times. I mean I ask myself "Why am I even here?" all the time. Things got to the point that I cried myself to sleep every night for 4 months straight. My mom was devastated she didn't know what to do to help me, but she did try. I cried on her shoulder many of times. My step-dad was there, when I collapsed on the floor telling him I wanted to die, I didn't need to be here, he held me, and promised things would be okay. My 4 year old sister would cuddle with me and tell me that she loved me and needed me. &that is why I am still here, because of my family. I did inform the school about what was happening and that only got me called a "snitch" as I walked down the hallways, and dirty looks every chance they got. I have been called fat, I eat once a day at that's at school because if I don't people think I have an eating disorder. I weigh 114 pounds and I am 5'5. I do want to be smaller, and people called me dumb and stupid for wanting to be. but I am sick of being called fat. In all of this, I am just trying to say don't let what others say to you, hurt you. Stand tall, never stoop down to their level, they are just another face in the crowd. & now, as I have maybe 8 friends, I am happy again. Please always be strong, and get help if you don't think you can. God is always with you take a second and pray for help, I promise you will get it. ♥ My name is Kia O'Donnell and I oppose bullying.
