She was being cyber-bullied through the social networking website Face book. Amanda was being blackmailed, bullied, and physically assaulted. It was said that she e-mailed an inappropriate photo of herself to an anonymous man who later on revealed it to the internet . After the police informed her that this photo of her was being circulated around the internet, Todd experienced major depression and panic disorder. Amanda and her family moved many times hoping to begin a newer happier life but where ever she went the pain followed her. After changing schools Todd began chatting with an " old guy friend" who apparently liked her, but had a girlfriend. Amanda and the guy friend had an affair while his girlfriend was on vacation. When his girlfriend got back, she and a group of others attacked Todd at school; shouting insults and punching her to the ground. After this incident Amanda attempted suicide by drinking bleach, but was rushed to hospital to have her stomach pumped. Although Todd took counselling trying to get back to normal, she was still experiencing major depression which caused her to start taking drugs.

I Am – By Laura

I am the person you bullied at school,
I am the person who didn’t know how to be cool,
I am the person you alienated,
I am the person you ridiculed and hated.

I am the person who sat on her own,
I am the person who walked home alone,
I am the person you scared every day,
I am the person who had nothing to say.

I am the person with hurt in her eyes,
I am the person you never saw cry,
I am the person living alone with her fears,
I am the person destroyed by her peers.

I am the person who drowned in your scorn,
I am the person who wished she hadn’t been born,
I am the person you destroyed for ‘fun’,
I am the person, but not the only one.

I am the person whose name you don’t know,
I am the person who just can’t let go,
I am the person who has feelings too,
And I was a person, just like you. http://familylives.org.uk/news-and-discussion/blog/i-am-poem-laura-bullying-uk THE END. . . I hope that now you will think twice before you bully someone and I hope you will now know what to do when you are being bullied
