The kids were so mean. They called me 'gay' and other names like that. They told me to go die in a hole and that nobody would love me, that I would die alone. They told me I was worthless. I was diagnosed with depression and tried to self-harm.
Then I found Kids Helpline and everything changed.
The counsellors on the phone told me things that changed me for good. I no longer believed all the horrible things that the kids said. I still have depression but I no longer need tablets for it because I can control it more. I am so much happier! I'm no longer being bullied and I love life.
