Jeff, it is absolutely true that, if what you went through, you suffered as an adult, you would have an air tight case in a court of law. Why does it not occur to people that it is an even worse offense when it happens to a kid. I have overcome a lot when it comes to my bullying issues, and I haven't seen such a level of public humiliation, but I still find myself fighting negative feelings when I hear people, especially girls, laughing behind me. It's like they are all still laughing at me. I have to remind myself that those days are long gone.
