They dread getting out of bed on school days knowing the torment will continue Bullied victims feel like there is no point living and can lead to physical side effects e.g. vomiting, self harm and suicide People can still feel the negative side effects physically and mentally at the age of 50! Only a small percentage of people who have been bullied have spoken to someone about it
