Hi Amy. I think you could be quite right. Both my therapist and I chalk up a lot of my problems to a sort of post traumatic stress syndrome from bulling in middle and the first year of high school.

When I chose a school for my very sensitive son, the school attitude towards bullying was my number one concern. I found a "progressive" school with a zero tolerance for it. Kids will be kids only as long as that's the attitude adults have. And my fury is directed as much as the adults who failed to protect me as the kids who tormented me. That's why I get on Dr. Bob's case so often. :)

I'd love to pull my thoughts together and write more on this later, but I'm really not feeling well today.

In fact, I think that if I do go back to school, I want to go find a career where I can work with the whole concept of peer bullying and its long term effects.

At one time, I probably had every book written on the subject. But a lot has come out in the last year or two, so I've probably fallen behind.

Give me a few days to recover from yesterday's flaming amygdala attack, which has left me with a nasty adrenal hangover, and I'll write back.
