A Girl Was Bullied So Badly That She Ended Up in Hospital – But Her Mom Isn’t Letting the Perpetrators Get Away with it

A Girl Was Bullied So Badly She Ended Up in Hospital - But Her Mom Isn't Letting Them Get Away with it

Whether cyber or in person, studies show that bullying at school can have some truly devastating consequences for victims. From the development of anxiety disorders and depression, to the onset of physical health issues, these effects don’t necessarily end when childhood does, with many recorded issues carrying on well into adulthood.

Although one in four children will be bullied by their peers, the figures aren’t as shocking as seeing the results firsthand. That’s why a mother has shared a photograph of her daughter in hospital, after anxiety caused by bullying made her ill.

Carrie Golledge shared a snap of her daughter, Sophie, sleeping in a hospital bed after bullies caused her so much stress she threw up 20 times in one hour.

In her Facebook post, she said: “This is my child with such a caring heart that despite being so ill ‘doesn’t want anyone to get in trouble’…

This is my child who has stopped eating, has cried herself to sleep, had anxiety so severe she’s up sick over 20 times in an hour through the night…

This is my child whose ‘best friend’ has emotionally abused her for so long she thought it was normal…

This is my child who has been in and out of hospital for countless trips due to being so sick with anxiety…

This is my child who was told off for ‘telling tales at school’…

This is my child who has been mocked on social media by the bullies parents for just having such a pure heart…

This is my child who when addressing the issues with her school we were told ‘Its just 6 year olds being 6 year olds’…

This is my child who was told by the school she should be the one feeling ashamed and be snuck in a side door of a morning…”

The 29-year-old shared the image in the hopes of raising awareness of bullying, after her daughter’s school refused to help resolve the situation. So far, the post has been shared more than 240,000 times by people touched by Sophie’s plight.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, the mom said she has been swamped by kind messages from strangers as a result of the post.

“You are all incredible I’m restoring our faith in people that has been stripped from us over the last couple months,” she said.
