Re:im being bullied

Hi i too have had really bad experiences at a school for the blind. I got picked on by this 1 girl who could see a bit but was losing her sight and picked on me because i got around the school better than she did. The teachers and the girl told lies about me, and the head of the school was a real dragon! I only managed to stick it for about 18 months. I am over it now though. it all happened about 11 years a go now but i can still remember how hard it was stuck there on my own.

I know the feeling. I'm a sixteen year old girl who is struggling greatly in school. My tc told lies to my teachers about what I can and cannot see and now school is pure hell. I get yelled at my my teachers all the time for not getting work done or demanding why I can't do diagrams because my tc said that I could. I'm almost positive that I'll be leaving the school next year because its so bad. I totally know what you are going through! Feel free to e-mail me at
