I had the exact same experience. Except my f***** up, sadistic, older half brother never forgave me for it.
He was the weird kid that everyone his age picked on, he came home and took it out on me. For years I lived in constant fear of him with good reason. I was terrified when my parents would leave and put him in charge. I got all of my bullying and torment at home. One day I had enough. I was 13 he was 19. My parents were out of town, he was asleep and I knew what to expect when he woke. So I woke him up by spraying bug spray in his eyes and beat him with a baseball bat. I beat him through the house, through the yard and broke the windows out of his car as he drove away. He drove himself to the hospital and never came back home to live. I wish I had done it years sooner. He's in prison somewhere today and I sincerely hope I never see him again.
By the time I got to high school I was pre-bullied. There was nobody there as scary as the guy I already made scream like a girl.
jesus, lucky i dont have the crap you guys had, i've only be attempted to be bullied by, and the two guys who tried that didnt try it ever again after i fought them, ironically this was before i did mma and when i punched like a rtard, still worked though
