Because Blogger's "Adult warning" often goes into a perpetual loop (isn't working properly), I will be making all new posts at my WordPress blog. You can follow it even if you do not have a WordPress Account. There're also my Twitter and my Tumblr blog, my Facebook and my Google+ page and my group.
(Update: Blogger hasn't fixed its problem with the "adult warning". Will go back to posting at my WordPress blog)

It gets better

If you've been bullied and tormented at school, the scars never really go away, but it does get better.  Don't despair, don't give up.

This great post from the gay author Rick Reed discusses his experiences.

And this Youtube post from Dan Savage and his husband shows you again that you'll survive.  You'll more than survive -- you'll flourish. 

Once you leave high school, you escape the bullies and arseholes.  Oh, they're still around.  But they lose their power over you.

I still find it hard to go into a room full of strange men.  I still bear the scars of being remorselessly and continually bullied for years.  I survived.  You will too.
