well then, I think ( and so sorry about your eyes) that this ended rather well...it could have gotten ugly, and I am so glad it didn't.
If your parents freak out and want to know why you didn't tell them, be honest....tell them to your way of thinking, it would have made things worse, and that you wanted to handle this on your own. I am happy this is resolved and that she got arrested!! glad you told

I've been watching this thread and I wanted to give all involved here in this discussion (especially Gracianna) a big (((HUG))) because I think this went very well, and its wonderful to see that a place like this could have an effect on a situation such as the one asked about here.  

School was scary enough for me when I was younger and with the world changing since then like it has, I could imagine that it is even more dangerous these days.

The very first time I stood up for myself in the face of a bully was a totally refreshing experience that left me smiling and confident all day. Little did I know I had a longer battle to face, but still that was my jumping off point. This isn't the way it should be done, but I actually started to hit back at one point because telling wasn't helping all that much. Another way I dealt with it was when anyone confronted and threatened me, I just got really loud with them. Sometimes it worked. Sometimes they left me alone because by being loud I had drawn attention to them and they got sort of uncomfortable with an audience and the possiblity that an authority figure was in that audience somewhere.  

Anyway, the situation was never perfect, but I managed to stand up for myself more and more as time went by.

LOL! Okay..rambling me. Like I said..I just wanted to let everyone know I think you all did a wonderful job in this thread. It makes me smile and I had been concerned.

ohh..and for some reason I was always lucky enough to avoid being seriously "beaten" on, but I believe if it had come to that point I would have fought back without even having to think because I had such a temper.  

The guys who picked on me were always amazed when they threatened me and I stood my ground..telling them to "go ahead". I figured if I was going to get beaten up I was going to go down with a fight. LOL! lucky me..I've never been in a real fight.


I'm not saying fighting or hitting back is the way to solve it though. Geesh..people bring more weapons to school now more than I ever knew they did, so if I were in school today, I'd probably be more reluctant too.

anyways...I came back to ramble..I'm finished again.

I will not be on for a while, I think. ANyway, I just found out about 10 minutes ago that I was moving. See you around. By the way, if you want to e-mail me, the one listed is not  my real one. They are trace-able, you know. I might e-mail one of you guys on my real e-mail sometime. Bye!

Justice is being served now that the girl is arrested and expelled! Now she is the one who is going to get pushed around in juvenile hall! (hugs)
