HI there and welcome to HealingWell,
I am 22 and I spent most of my school life (From about age 10) being bullied. It was mostly emotional and I became a real loner at school. When I went to college, I thought things would change but they didnt so I was stuck with the same problem. After 1 year at college, I got bad exam results and so I dropped out for a year. I got a job in a local supermarket and stayed at home. After a year out, I went back to college and started from scratch. Even thought i was 2 years older than most people in my classes, I got on better because none of them knew me so they had no preconceptions. I completed 2 years at college, got my A levels and went to Uni where I have been for 2 years now. I have some amazing friends and I truely believe that taking the year out really helped me. Even though my parents, teachers etc... thought that it was a bad idea, I still did it and proved them wrong.
I suppose what I am trying to say is to persevere with your education. Take a gap year if you need to, and then go back and work your socks off. Things will get better and I hope you can find the strength to find that out yourself. Also, by not considering a therapist as a partial solution, you are cutting yourself off from a major source of help. (As Kitt has said)
