    Dino, I don't know anything about you but I have a son that seems to have all the same problems you have. So I would say I have a unique perspective on your situation. If you are like my son I could sit here all day and give you solutions and you'd tell me I don't have a clue to what I'm talking about. You said you don't have anywhere to turn to but you were given another forum ( http://www.algy.com/anxiety/ib/index.php )that will be alot more capable of helping you then anybody here. You should give the forum a try before you say that you have no where to turn.

It sounds like you could be suffering from a bit of depression (the comments about wanting to die, etc.) I also had a very rough life growing up and as a result I have severe depression problems along with Social Anxiety Disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The forum above is a great place to vent your frustrations and get advice from people who have been there. There's even several sections where people just post "Vents" and tell about a really bad day or whatever.
    And you'll get much better replies than you would here. I agree with NepG- this is a CP forum.. so it's not a good place for stuff like this.
    By the way, my name is WildFyre on those forums. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    Not a bit of depession, a lot of depression.

    All the more reason to try the forums I gave you a link to.. please just give them a try. The people there were there for me when I had no where else to turn to as well.

    Yea, I agree with bonnie... CP forums arent the place to unload your stress on everyone else and get everyone else worked up [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    That's true. Bonnie is right. However, don't think we don't care or that you can't post your problems here. It's just that you should ALSO try there, and you may find that the advice is better.

    The only thing we necessarily have in common is an obsession with these crazy plants.

    In the situation you describe, ignoring the bully would probably have ended it - this time. And it sucks that it's always the guy that retaliates that gets in trouble. It's that way in my hockey league too. One guy is hitting, grabbing, slashing and all the rest, but if you turn and give it back, you get called for the penalty.

    The one bit of advice I have for you is a difficult, but important piece. It's about what to do in stressful situations. The best way to handle them is to force yourself to be EXTREMELY calm. Don't raise your voice. Don't give ANY indication of being upset. Simply explain why you did what you did. But do so in a way that shows that you were NOT out of control, and it's the other guy who's out of control. From the tutor's perspective, he just saw that you were raging against another guy, and he wanted to stop it. But if you were rational and calm, you can explain the situation in a way that doesn't make the tutor defensive or nervous. This is hard to do because it's always a situation that is VERY tense and emotions are high. But it you can do it, you'll win in these situations.

    I am a teacher, and I can assure you... you are not the only one who goes through this. Teacher's are human and make mistakes... they can only watch so many kids. If I was built perfectly as a teacher, I would have 28 sets of eyes on the body and sixteen arms sprouting off my torso.

    Name calling is a no-no... Ask your teacher for a meeting time where you can express your concerns with her/him. Explain what is going on. This will make it apparent to the teacher so they can watch more closely... but again... we teachers only have so many eyes and cannot watch just one, but we have a large population to watch.

    As for the name calling, well, everyone is called names at one point in their life. Calling another person names puts you at risk as well as you are just as big of a violator and 'troublemaker'. Let it roll off of you or take it to a teacher. Kicking a chair or what have you, is not appropriate steps and will earn you bad credibility... such as you are experiencing by not being believable. Gain credibility by doing the right thing, not by retaliating.

    cough I cough told cough you.
    you could have ignored him and if that didn't work, just tell the teacher... better than making all that mess.
