So, three years ago I decided to share a story. Being another 3 years on and on the odd occasion, I still get what I used to get.
Most my life I've been in and out of hospitals to find out "what's wrong" with me - I'm partly deaf, short sited (I wear glasses but have a broken pair), I've got bent fingers that are embarrassing, and my elbows touch. But the most obvious was my jaw. I was told at 13 that I have a missing chromosome and instead of my jaw and other bones growing "normally", they were obviously growing differently. I was bullied for it. Called a freak down the high school halls - or animals names such as birdy or sharky.
But then one day, I thought I had the confidence to post a photo online and it got out and I was then bullied ONLINE - BY PEOPLE I DIDNT KNOW - for years. 11 to be exact. I HAD a Wikipedia page made about me. I heard a new type of bullying. "Kill yourself you chinless freak."
You know what - I'm 26 yrs young - despite STILL being called a chinless 40 yr old junkie - I'm proud of where I am now. And I'm so much better than the people who THINK they know me.
