There's new evidence that depression is not just a disorder of the mind.

Even sadder are the victims of bullies who are victimized at home by both parents. I was, at school and 'home', for 13 sad. lonely and terrified years. I have never shown any bullying traits, not then, not now, not ever. I cannot understand how anyone who has lived with such torture can carry it further. I despised my parents, and the kids around me who all supported each bunch of bullies, (we moved around a lot, due to my 'dad's' inability to hold down a job for very long). Knowing how much I hated those people, it seems a nonsense to take on that hatred myself. Interestingly, when I attempted suicide, the first person to come and sit next to me, and apologize, was the head bully herself. I wonder how many bullies, whose victims have succeeded in their suicide attempt, have changed their ways?
