Re: Peers tease me about my disorder

Hi Teen16!

I'm not sure if you're looking for advice or just venting, but I want to let you know you're being heard. I'm 21 now, but in school I was teased a lot, too. For just the opposite reason you are. I was in advanced and gifted classes. I know it's hard to deal with and it hurts every day. Just rest assured that it's because of their own insecurities. More than likely, you get a lot of attention from teachers/counselors/etc.. for your disorder? The other kids are just looking for recognition, too, and are, in many ways, jealous. Once you get out of high school and into the real world, you'll find that people aren't nearly as cruel. I know it seems like a long way off, but trust in yourself and you'll be out of there before you know it.

Hoping Some Kind Words Could Help,

You just gotta try to ignore people, at best as you can. And don't keep your feelings inside, either. Express them in some way, it'll make you feel better. Talk to someone about it. I know how hard it can be, and I also know you arne't doing yourself any good by keeping the feelings inside. Good luck!

That makes me so mad. Kids are cruel - that's a fact of life. But the teachers & other adults who ignore it are worse than the kids themselves.

Re: Peers tease me about my disorder

Kids are so cruel, i had alot of problems at scholl with bullying and most times would go home crying and make myself sick. It was because i could not answer questions on the spot, or speak out infront of a class and i could not read or write properly.

Be brave please, you are only young and you can show them that it doesnt effect you.

I am now 28 and am doing the job i set my heart on when i was 6 even though the teachers and students said i would never accomplish anything worth while, but i had to prove them wrong - and that i did.

Last year i went out to a few pubs and clubs and bumped in to some of the bullies, 3 of them appologised to me for being so horrible to me and i just smiled!

Anyway, morral of the story - keep your head up high, make sure you all ways smile and dont let it get to you. They will soon see that you are not bothered by them - it will be difficult but TRY PLEASE, believe me it will work <<HUGGS>>

Re: Peers tease me about my disorder

Speaking from a teachers point of view, tell someone. I teach special education in a Middle School in NY. One of the things my students fail to do is tell us when they are being harassed. Many students think that they shouldn't do anything, or that if they do say something nothing will come of it, but I have to tell you if you have a teacher who cares something will be done about it. I had a student who was being harassed sexually by an older student, she is learning disabled and didn't know how to handle it and never told anyone. Things got out of hand and she was attacked after school by this boy. If someone would have known what was going on we could have helped her and this may have been preventable.

If you're looking for the reason they do this to you, you won't find it. You see, the problem is NOT you. It's THEM! They have the problem. They're the idiots who are doing this stupid stuff.
I used to get teased in school. It hurt really bad. But now I feel sorry for those peole who did that to me. They had a lot of problems. They seemed normal and I thought I was the one who wasn't normal. But the truth is for whatever reason, they had problems-they're homelife wasn't good, they had emotional problems. They were teasing me to get the focus off of themselves and their insecurities about themselves.
My son has ADD and learning disabilities. He was teased HORRIBLY in school. He's now a sophmore in high school and volunteers at our local tv station as a camera man. He found something he LOVES to do and has made friends doing it. He has much more confidence in himself and he LOVES to go to school!
There are two things I think you should do to help yourself.
First, tell someone you trust who these kids are and what they've been doing to you. If you find it too hard to tell someone face to face, write it down and mail it to that person you trust.
Second, find something that interests you (baseball, track, theatrical club-whatever interests you) and join it. Focus on that and your school work. Soon, you won't care so much what others think of you.
You can't control what these bullies say or do. But you can control how you react to it. If you do nothing about it, nothing will change. Tell someone!
Stay strong. Keep your chin up and be proud of yourself. I'm proud of you for posting your concerns. That takes a lot of courage.
Please post back and let us know how you are, ok?
Live, Love, Laugh.
