  • If you can tell me to cope with burying my sister and brother both younger above other psych injuries I’ll not have ptsd I fight or run. It’s scary but I know it’s life a timer! ❤️

  • Was surprised to hear about the fight flight or “freeze” response. First time hearing that and I do freeze a lot. A lot of people have ptsd and don’t even recognize. I had to hear from someone else in the medical field. Ehh it’s nice to know now that I can recognize some of my behaviours. I like to talk about it now that I was diagnosed a few years ago, it was a fluke I was just talking about my story and upbringing and bang. I

  • I’ve been abused as a child, I’ve been beat up by a group of guys, I’ve done the beating, I’ve been shot at, I have been hit by cars, I have been left by everyone I thought cared.

I lost both my daughters, Point is I have many PTSD triggers I just want you to know you aren’t alone reach out your hand and ill reach back and pull you back up to your feet we can help each other walk the rest of the way.

  • I get bullied in class by this girl called “Samaira” I don’t know how to spell it correctly, anyways I am a new student and obviously I have no friends so of course I’m the target! And the next thing you know is you will see her making fun of me or trying to find a way to belittle me, during class, she told me to sit next to her and obviously I didn’t want to because she’s always rude to me but nice to everyone, I didn’t want to but she kept shouting my name so I did, once I sat next to her she kept saying crap about me and kept talking about random stuff that I didn’t know about, I got used to her annoying me and belittling me but this time it went to far, she kept making fun of me for having no friends and saying that if you have no friends you’ll never survive as if it was the end of the world for me, I was upset and started crying.. not that type of crying where you scream as in the quiet cry, she started to be nice and say tht she was sorry and repeated it several times, she then asked for if I was her friend and I said no, she stopped talking to me along and stopped annoying me, she probably realises that what she’s doing is wrong but she doesnt seem to be bothered. I’m happy that she doesn’t bother me as much now, I guess..

  • I’ve been diagnosed with ptsd and I can’t reach out to swipe my card at a cash register without my hand involuntarily getting shooketh. I don’t think ive had any trauma related to cash registers, but I do know that people don’t like talking to me at the gas station anymore.

  • I was bulllied in school when i was teenager and I’m on medication, i have ptsd and I’m 23 years old.. i still get ignored and bullied from time to time.

  • I have experienced a lot of traumatic Experiences in life giving me sever flashback and traumas to many things including noises and loud Audios. Even though I am in a deep sleep my body feels like 100% ready for an extreme adrenaline that even a single sound can wake me and make my heart to beat fast, muscle stiff and feel like I am ready to run and survive. The bad thing is that everytime I hear loud noises while I sleep, there are times that it synchronizes to my dreams and it is creating bad nightmares like War, volcanic Erruptions and Earthquake… It’s just sad that I don’t even have the ability to get diagnosed for it is expensive or to seek help. Nobody knows what I am going through and still joke about me being paranoid to loud sounds ������

During my 4th year i met them and they were shocked by how I phisically changed, now they try to flirt with me but it’s so cryingy that it makes me wanna throw up everytime lol

    But guided MEDITATIONS have HELPED me very much ❤️

  • I just had a trigger last night and couldn’t sleep the whole night, I was harrassed at a very young age for years and that left a huge impact on me the symptoms you mentioned I had a few of them like lack of sleep, increased heart rate,difficulty in breathing and fear. It’s just so hard for me I wish I could just erase it all

  • I was 12 when war started in Syria, I’m now 21 and the worst PTSD is this haunting thought that my youth was wasted in horrors and sorrows. Wasted..forever.

  • My child is being bullied and I am at a loss as to what to do.
    Went for a sleepover on the weekend and bully came over and peed and put cleaner on the toothbrush.

  • I know this was two years old but idc so I have C-PTSD (complex post trumatic stress discord) I want to tank you for making this video they showed this at my school because I had attack in class and now my life is so much better thanks to you everyone is more understanding
    (Side note my C-PTSD came from multiple dog attacks) C-PTSD definition Complex post-traumatic stress disorder (complex PTSD, sometimes abbreviated to c-PTSD or CPTSD) is a condition where you experience some symptoms of PTSD along with some additional symptoms, such as: difficulty controlling your emotions. feeling very hostile or distrustful towards the world.

  • What’s fun is when you go to a psychologist and they diagnose you incorrectly and give you medications for all the wrong reasons, and create yet another PTSD situation.

    Go to a psychologist at your own peril.

  • im being bullied for walking on my toes and i cant stop people calling me tippytoes even the people who i thought were my friends and it makes me so mad at myself and i cant help it. even a teacher told me to stop but i just cant

  • I had a neighbour who would repeatedly blast bass heavy music. He doesn’t do it anymore though, I think he’s been silenced. But now whenever I hear low freqency sounds, doesn’t matter what it is, I think it’s him staring up his music again and I get all anxious untill I find the source of the sound. I HAVE to be sure that it’s not him again. Is this PTSD?

  • I was bullied in all throughout high school but looking at me as an adult(27) you’ll think I was happy and popular. Many people keep asking me why I I’m so quiet. I’m quiet because I don’t want to attract any bullies. I noticed that I’m really affected by my childhood. I refuse to date a guy that looks like anyone who bullied,
    I avoid having female friends, and I don’t want a daughter who looks like the women who bullied me.

  • please don’t use this kind of animation style anymore.

    why? Because it’s stressful, and some of us are a lot more sensitive than the others. People with PTSD and/or other mental problems might come here to seek help, to discover how can they deal with it better. And they’ll see this, which might in the best case stress them a bit, in the worst trigger something very bad. I understand that the artists tried really well, and I’m not going to deny they did a good job. But these visuals might actually be harmful. Please, if you can, stop using them. Please, use something a lot more safe, soft and welcoming. Even though we’re talking about a serious mental problem we want to help them, not to stress them even more, right?

  • I’ve had a few traumatic experiences in my life. I was physically abused by my father, I lost my sister in a car accident, I’ve seen my father beat my mother and brother, seen my father have bad trips when he was on drugs, was in a car accident myself, and I found my mom dead in her bed after she took her own life. PTSD (or as I like to call it, Spicy Nostalgia) definitely affects me. I have nightmares and I’m really jumpy. Somedays the spicy is just a bit mild, and I’m able to function. But I do have my days where it’s MUY, MUY CALIENTE. I try and soothe the pain by talking to a friend or working out. It’s no cure, but it definitely helps!

  • Our whole society is traumatized from watching people being killed live on tv and the dark corners of the internet amongst other things.

  • Hello Tamzin My name is Jason Barnett I’m a former teacher and now lead a campaign group of families that have lost children to suicide because of bullying and school violence in schools. We recently went to Parliament in February to challenge the Government on the issue. This is our video story which we hope will give hope to anyone who needs it. https://youtu.be/98rGW2xTCjs

    something wrong with me?

  • I’m 25. I still can’t sleep. I still cry everytime i hear their names. They get to go on with their lives because they are not traumatized. I’m still stuck in the past. I’ve been ”free” for five years. But my mind will probably never be fully free

  • It’s been 4 months since my parents passed away. My dad passed just 3 days after my mom did, and I keep having bad dreams since then.

  • PTSD must be one of the most awful mental disorders. You believe it’s all over, but then realize it’s not and that you still have a long way to go before healing completely.

  • Just subbed, I’ve know you since you did my labret at the Venice shop ages ago. I seen your transformation first hand. your an inspiration. At 35 I’m finally feeling that I need to do something. I switched careers last year from a desk job to physically working building heavy shit with my sweat and blood. I’ve dropped from a size 46 to a loose 42 in 9 months. My weight is hovering but my cloths are getting bigger. Every time I leave work tired and a soaked shirt, I have that same feeling I had when I’d leave The Dungeon. Oh and Princess Peach is still looking good.

  • I’m 25 years old and im still struggling with everyday life from the long term affects of bullying. I don’t think it’s something you can ever fully recover from.

    One and only youuuuuuuuuuuu….

  • I recently graduated high school and started college and I began to realize how much it has impacted me. Every now and then I would get horribly depressed.

  • you seem to me a lovely, young lady who is very confident. I don’t think it unfair to think that you have a low self esteem. You are just wounded inside because of what had happend and time will heal your wounds.
    I feel that you are strong and brave person to talk about bullying publicly and this is the beginning of the healing process. Well done!
    I am sure your video will help many many people. God bless you and lots of love.

  • This video truly represent the nightmares i had in my childhood…. Gives me goosebumps exactly the same feelings of sinking the entire earth or just getting huge and crushing my teeth while eyes are closed tight….. For a 2 year old it was crazy….. Really appreciate the creative team of this video ��

  • “Bullies will also struggle as they get older; they might end up in jail” ������ (as you can tell, I’ve never gotten over what my bullies made/make me feel)

  • I’m 35 years old and there’s not a day that goes by where I don’t have flashbacks from being bullied in school. As an adult it has caused me to have several lash outs. I used to get beat up and picked on by kids and when I got older I learned how to fight and started to take it out on people. It’s really said and it’s really scary.

  • I was bullied mercilessly from age 12 until I graduated and it made me fucking insane. Which is why I don’t get bullied anymore.so here’s my advice to anyone who is getting bullied. You get bullied because people don’t respect you. The only real way to stop the bullying is to stand up and fight start taking boxing classes so if someone tries to bully you u can knock them the fuck out then you wont get bullied anymore. If you can’t afford self defense classes tell someone to meet you after school and bring a weapon NOT A GUN something that will hurt them but not kill them or fill a thermos will boiling cooking oil and throw it in a bullies face you’ll face consequences but u wont get bullied anymore. You might think it sounds extreme but take it from me someone who was bullied mercilessly by everyone including girls it is the only way to make it stop now I’m 23 and whenever I see anybody that use to bully me I look them in the eye and let them know they’re an inch away from death and dare them to bully me and I don’t have problems with bullying anymore so if u want the bullying to stop take my words it is just necessary.

  • Hi everyone, it looks like we made a mistake. Our apologies! Please note that the fight-or-flight response is characteristic of the sympathetic, not the parasympathetic functioning of the autonomic nervous system. Thanks to those of you who also flagged the error. We’re working on updating the video.

  • I totally understand where you are coming from. I dealt with it when I was a kid for being the scrawny kid that even my “friends” picked on. I used to wear clothes that were way to big on me to hide how small I was. I’m sure that’s where a lot of the anxiety I suffer with now came from. You have a lot to be proud of, and I am happy to see that you are accepting yourself. The first time I saw you in your shop I never would have guessed you were big at one time. You look ripped so while I did not see the transition, since I only met you 8 months ago, you should be proud of what you have achieved!

  • Ive been suffering because of being bullied, i need to take medication life long.
    The world is a sick place.
    Animals have more feelings.
    I hope god will end the world soon.

  • …..one time I handled bullying by violence…10 ppl were believing lies and rumors about me and decided to bully me….I gave them a beating….

  • Just beat their fucking ass that’s what my mom said. She said she doesn’t care if I get suspended for doing it as long as I’m standing up for myself, which I was surprised that she said that bc she’s strict

  • this might be true but i low key hate it when people say “ ppl bully because they’ve been bullied in the past “ if u were bullied in the past you should know how painful it is to get bullied. don’t attack me.. this is how i feel. i’m getting bullied by a group of boys and i’ve thought about ending my life but why should i? their the ones who are ducked uo

  • I’m pretty sure I have some sort of trauma from my migraines. I get really spooked by floaters and I’ll often pause whatever I’m doing until it goes away, I hate certain patterns (it’s hard to describe, but anything with a sort of uneven checkerboard or psychedelic looking pattern? It’s fairly specific) I cannot drink room temperature water if I’m not thirsty because it makes me feel sick, and I hate swallowing pills. It’s not so bad though, so I’ve never tried to get a diagnosis or anything.

  • I’ve been bullied when I was in my kindergarten, highschool
    and YES it has severe impact on my behaviour, especially when it comes to anxiety and paranoia.
    Please don’t bully anyone

  • Well done you’ve won because your now at university with a life and prospects all the shit you’ve gone through and to come out the other side better
    Best of wishes

  • we all have our stories and lots of the damage is done to us when we are very young and undeveloped. I am a 37 year old man and was bullied terribly from the time I started kindergarten up until I graduated from high school. I was a very sensitive kid and lots of these creeps out there see that and they take advantage of you. When I was in high school what made it really bad is I started getting bullied by girls in school. That’s very messed up because that is not supposed to happen. I had mean girls putting down my intelligence and treating me poorly and I saw them treating other guys like they mattered. I suffered in silence and now as a adult I would say the most challenging effect for me is the ability to trust people. I have terrible anxiety around women and my biggest concern is everytime I meet a female is ”Is this woman going to treat me poorly and does she care how I feel”. I do meet lots of nice women out there but there are some real mean ones and it’s very scary and disturbing how some people out there can treat a innocent person like garbage based on nothing. This world is not made for nice people it’s made for creeps.

  • Bullies can fuck off. I was maliciously bullied from elementary school through high school and beyond because I’m gay. To the point of me feeling that my life was in danger to multiple sexual assaults (1 at school in the bathroom). Just because they got shit at home, doesn’t give them an excuse to be psychopaths. I got shit at home, too. And I didn’t take it out on people who weren’t responsible. Because of the literal 10+ years of the bullshit, I struggle with depression and anxiety, and attempted suicide multiple times. Yet, even though I have serious rage issues, I don’t mistreat people.

  • I’ve been bullied since grade 2. I’m in middle school still bullied because because I have Cancer and I can’t go to school without being made fun of for it… My cousin is always there to protect me though

  • When you see a kid being bullied or an adult or anyone anywhere…stand up for them. We are damaged adults not living life strugling with depression and anexiety and isolation and feeling suicidal, yes we answer back the bullies but still it becomes worst we have hearts and feelings we are humans…. if we get hurt we are not weak we get hurt because we would never hurt anyone cuz some pple are have no feelings at all cyz they are bad pple with no feelings, but pple have no humanity kids teenage even grown uos it’s awful.

  • Bullies don’t have abusive life but they bully you to feel funny cool and strong or have fun. Just like that with no reasons… they just wqnt to hurt pple.

  • I do not know how to deal with what I went through. I walk around with a great deal of anger. Some days are better than others. I have a son now but I don’t see my emotions getting more stable. I need help but don’t know where to start. Therapy was unhelpful and expensive medicine made it hard to do my job and think clearly. I am having a very hard time coping

  • I feel like all this starts from the bully having a narcissistic parent that’s my conclusion cause I saw my bullies dad and he seemed quite mean to the asshole kid who bullies me so yeah.

  • Both me and boyfriend have ptsd..He’s helped me a lot and I think I’m mostly over with it now after many years but I’ve tried helping him which I’m unsure of his state as of now.
    Ptsd is hard to explain, especially when you don’t have the “typical flashbacks”. Mine is mostly emotion effected but I have my triggers that send me into a fight or flight or freeze mode, my boyfriend gets flashbacks sometimes and nightmares most nights (unsure if he’s gotten better about this) and is also effected emotionally. He jumps at certain noises and reacts out of instinct, if someone broke into our house I wish them luck on dealing with my boyfriend as he’d likely go into instinct infused ptsd mode which could kill them.

  • I’m being bullied for being “smart” and flat-chested. I stuff my bra often but my peers always figure out that I stuffed it. Another girl just hates me because.. well, I don’t know why. She tries to make sure that I feel left out by my friends. She tries to make me feel like I’m a loser. Me, her, and my other friends (fake) were talking about what we’d name our kids, if we’d have any once we were older. I said Argentina, (yes, as in the country) and she said “Um, why can’t the kid have a normal name? I’ve literally never heard of a kid named Argentina. Ew.” and my other “friends” looked at me weird, laughed, and agreed. I only hang out with then because they’re the only people I have a friendship with, and because I hope to restore the bond.

  • I beat my father when I was a child cause he pushed me pushed for years. I flipped my switch in a second and fucked him up..years of an abused relationship can result in serious problems. Doesn’t matter who you are or what type of relationship youre in… FYI

  • I want people to know the long term affect of bullying is depression I am currently going through depression from being bullied because of my disability

  • I left my school the teacher was a bully hated me and my friends in 5th grade the 3rd grade teacher was great he lived me And my friends

  • I get bullied every single school year. There’s nothing I can do about it. I help my friends when they get bullied, but they don’t help me. The only people who know about my situation are my ex best friend and my brother and sister.: ‘) It’s a living hell. I have depression and my mother thinks it’s a phase. My grandparents keep calling me a skeleton because I’m “skinny” (even though I’m 10 pounds over weight) and tell me to eat more. My siblings act like they care but don’t actually. I’m only eleven. I thought that your childhood years were supposed to be the best years of your life, I guess I was misinformed. (Thanks for letting me vent.)

  • I’m sorry to say this but every school year I’m bullied the schools don’t do anything to help yeah they might tell them to say sorry but they don’t prevent the bullying I’m also trying to convince my mom to make me take online school for highschool wish me luck.

  • I was bullied throughout my childhood and no teacher ever cared even though I told them, I told my mom, my mom emailed them. One time they even blamed it on me???????? Im now just a fucking messed up teen that cant even take “thats not how you do it, this is how” without crying for 10 minutes because im so goddamn sensitive. Last time I was bullied was the beginning of summer last year when about 40 people were on me bc I asked a question. I wanna die.

  • Depending where you want to be in life… Rewire yourself for the impossible. Sometimes consequences and challenges in life appear and only the fittest can make it out alive. Only the ones who is determined to make it happen will make it.

  • I live a normal life without exclusive thoughts, until it’s night, that s when nightmares start, almost everyday making me wake up irritated and confused between dreams and reality.

  • I get it, I understand bullying should not be acceptable BUT, it will not officially stop. To think it will is to be naive, that’s like saying we stop doing drugs,”illegal ” it won’t stop. Best thing and ONLY thing is to educate the young on mental health, there IS a such thing as “enabling the weak, into knowing or thinking they are weak or not good enough when indeed it takes alot to live, this is where everyone says its “soft” not soft. Just uneducated not to care.
    Kids will bully other kids. There Kids! It what you should expect, not everyone will learn. But WE learn to be stronger then that. Move on and Plot that come up!

  • I got silent bullying for several months people scowling at me and running away from. Her parents allow it and I am humiliated in public. I am now agoraphobic and very low. I gained a lot of weight as well from overeating also have insomnia.

  • How long after a traumatic event should you expect that fear/stress to go away? Once I had a fainting spell paired with confusion and weakness due to low blood sugar and pressure. It was so bad people thought I was having a stroke. It lasted quite a while and I was super scared. After that day, without my meds, when i got hungry at night I would start having panic attacks and have to eat to feel less anxious. On my meds it only happens occasionally. But I don’t get intrusive thoughts or flashbacks. I just start feeling this overwhelming sense of dread and fear and often become paralysed the moment I realise my hunger

  • Bullied from my home life, then school. Now in the work place. There is no escape. Other than turning into a complainer or a bully myself.

  • Just subbed and just saw this video. I was bullied all thru my developmental years. Middle and high school. I had no friends. Whole school/peers shun me.

  • Its crazy how many things so many people can relate to in this video, it goes to show no one is alone and its important we all know that. I feel like a lot of people may feel some very similar things to you and think theyre crazy for it, I know I did, so its good to know other people go through similair things after being bullied.

  • My PTSD still resurfaces from time to time after 45 years. My recurring nightmare stopped once I realized it was an actual memory. As long as I don’t talk about it, or dwell on the memory I am able to avoid the uncontrollable emotions. I pray that anyone with PTSD is able to find peace and serenity one day at a time.

  • Thank you for sharing this. I think it’s something that a lot of people have experienced but struggle to talk about it, so well done you for being able to put it out into the world. Also you look gorgeous in the thumbnail for this!!!

  • I’ve been bullied from 2nd to 5th grade until I moved somewhere else, and I’m in 8th grade currently. And even though I don’t get bullied anymore, I still feel anxious about somebody trying to knock me down, which then I try to isolate myself to avoid that.

  • This was so good! You did such a great job with this. I think it’s important that we hear how the impact of bullying doesn’t just stop as soon as you’re removed from the situation, the long term effects are often just as bad, if not worse, than the in the moment pain. I’m sorry you went through this but you really are doing so well now and being aware of these things and being able to talk about them is another step in the journey to healing from the damage. Big hug. xx

  • I relate to this, and have experienced some of these things too. I think it’s important to talk about it, so this was a good video to film x
