I was bullied from third grade all the way until I lost my weight and my self confidence with it, my life was an absolute hell, but I had no idea what was coming.

I have been multitasking with school, sports, planning my immense college move, making sure I do outstanding on my college placement test and, all in a matter of not burning myself out. I kept letting myself down and continuously telling myself that I can’t do it. Recently I just got out of my first relationship with the person I would consider to be my first love.
