In reply to girls and bullying (quite long), posted by amy_oz on November 17, 2003, at 21:11:16

Hi Amy,

I was tormented by my bully brother throughout my childhood. Girls are just as evil. When I was 14, my only friend teamed up with a girl bully and openly teased me and ripped me apart. My reaction was to blame myself, I deserved it, I'm worthless,etc. My therapist says the combination of bullying traumatized me.

I, of course, still blame myself. I also don't trust anyone. My therapist understands that and is working with me to heal my damaged inner child. Right now we're on a break from it as we need to deal with other issues, the evil trio: bulimia, depression, and social anxiety.

I think therapy can help. I also have a guided imagery CD on self-esteem. It's too early to tell if that's working. I'll keep you posted.
