    I don't like bullies

    Voice Hearers Can Be Bullied

    I wonder, do people who hear voices ever get bullied as a result? I have caught sight of people at bus stops (classic), and walking though town, quite happily (and often unhappily), chatting away to themselves. They are of cos, in many cases, hearing voices and responding to and engaging with...

    I don't remember ever being happy.

    I'm talking about for a sustained period of time. Sure, I've had good days here and there, even great days, but it never lasts. For as long as I can remember I've been annoyed, embarrassed, sad, ashamed, scared or kind of numb. The summers of 86 and 95 were probably my happiest times but even...

    I can't forgive my school bullies *long ramble alert*

    Yes, I know, that statement in the thread title is a very VERY unhealthy outlook, but I can't seem to help it. Yes, they were were only children. Yes, they probably had it rough themselves and that's part of why they did it. BUT IT STILL HURTS. I'm in my late twenties and the pain is still...
