I am a 16 year old monster and I will share some of my story.
i have struggled with harming myself for 4 years now and eating disorders for a year, due to bullying. It really has had an effect on my life and I have tried to kill myself 4 times because of it. I used to have friends that didn't like Gaga and I thought that I shouldn't either. Deep down inside, I just want to tell them that I didn't care, but I didn't my depression developed off of my low self esteem. I am still struggling day by day and I have been pulled from school because it was getting really bad with kids. I would have stuff thrown at my face and it happened numerous times. People I didn't even know would tell me I was fat or i was weird. I just didn't understand. Why do these people torture me when I haven't done anything to them?
I am telling you this because I want others to know that i am afraid. I want them to know that they aren't the only ones, they aren't alone. Together we can raise this money and maybe bring the BORN BRAVE BUS to CHICAGO again. I want the kids who struggle with the same thing as me to have a chance to be themselves. I know that if the BUS came to Chicago, they would free themselves and feel like they belong.
Thank you Gaga for giving me the chance to look up to someone. Because of you, I am still here. You have no idea how many times you saved me from ending it all. I love you.
I would greatly appreciate if you could help me and donate. A $1 would even help! My goal to raise at least $500.
Thank you to everyone who took their time to read some of my story and to those who donated.
