Girl- you are so very brave for sharing all this. I checked out your photos-you are a lovely young lady. These kids in your high school will mean nothing in your future life. I am sorry you let them affect you so much. I went through school pretty much as a loner & since i never got along w/kids-i made the decision to never have any of my own. I have had a horse (or more) since I could work-kept them through thick & thin. But-I retired at the end of last year, bought & moved to a sweet little ranch. Then my husband had to have a life-saving surgery-(no insurance & he hasn't worked for over 3 years)-so yesterday I gave my horses away to a family that can support them. I am devastated, & can really relate to what you are feeling. Be strong-stay independent & get horses back in your life as soon as you can. Rejoice in a good day or having good times-we never know what might be lurking just around the corner.

I'm really sorry to hear about everything you've been through. I also have spent much of my life dealing with weight issues, self esteem issues, eating disorders, and cutting. You're decision to seek treatment and consult a psychiatrist is very mature and responsible, and I commend you for taking those steps towards recovery. As far as the bullies go, "bully" is just another word for coward. They all probably have problems of their own and are too immature to resolve them, so they deflect onto another target. Here's an exercise for you to try: whenever someone says something nasty of hurtful, simply smile and say something nice in return, and say to yourself "I forgive them". By erasing negative thoughts right away, you won't be holding in any toxic emotions to dwell on, and it will help the recovery process. It won't be easy, but trust me: it gets better :) We'll be thinking of you :)
