I was lucky, that my school wasn't quite as cruel as hers. But I suppose my school got used to me. ha ha, I didn't lose it in highschool. I lost it when I was three or four, so they had to accept me from the beginning, ha ha. But I guess it just depends on the kids. My graduating class were actually pretty decent people, well... sort of. So, they knew me from the beginning.

I remember this episode and I was in tears at work because all I could think about was my daughter. Luckily her classmates didn't tease her because they seen the transition of everything but I fear for her everyday.

wow!!! I could not even imagine. Luckily I had hair then. I'm sure I would have been a train wreck! I am as an adult.
