Hi There,

I feel stupid as a 40 something posting on a bullying forum. I thought those days were behind me. I suffered for 6 months from a bully at school. I swore to never let a bully win ever again. My life was made hell.... 

I’m now suffering daily torment online with my business page. Stems back from a family feud with my sister, haven’t spoken in 12 years and she continues to tear me apart, now aimed at my business. I’ve had this for 12 years and police involved....everyone says I’m the strongest person they have ever met - but I’m now realising she will not stop, this torture won’t end unless I die. I’ve never felt so weak in my life. This vicious online attack has been constant and sustained for a week and an admin of a community page keeps sharing this to get it viral - she’s a friend of my sister. 
I just don’t get the mindset of these people - I feel stupid, lost and probably the lowest I’ve felt in years 

any pointers please?

Hi, I understand that this is a difficult and upsetting situation. Depending on what website these instances are taking place, all social media sites have ways of reporting people and blocking them for contacting you. A lot of online information is aimed at children, but online bullying and harassment unfortunately happens to people of all ages, so the wording might be aimed at young people but the information is still useful. Internet Matters has a lot of information that you might find helpful. You may also find it helpful to read our articles on cyber bullying. If you feel you need further support please e-mail us at askus@familylives.org.uk or call our freephone helpline on 0808 800 2222.

I tried to commit suicide on Saturday evening. I’m not proud, I’m thoroughly ashamed of myself, as my parents, brother and boyfriend could have woken up to a different world on Sunday.
im learning that nobody helps, I can sit here minding my own business, and I can have my business, and my own being, maliciously berated, and nobody will help. 

Thank you for your post.

I am so sorry that you felt that low on Saturday evening that you attempted to take your own life. What you must be feeling, I can only imagine and I am really sorry that you are going through this. Do you feel able to seek support? I do appreciate you may not have the strength to seek help, but we are here for you. How would you feel about talking things through with our team of trained supporters? You may find it more useful to use our Live Chat service which is open 1.30 to 5.30pm, Monday to Fridays. Please get in touch with us so we can help you by talking things through and help you plan a way forward. 

What you are going through shows how cyberbullying affects people of all ages and backgrounds. Are there practical things you can do such as removing the page and setting up a new one. That may give you more control over who is on your page, etc. Can you remove the Admin of the community page? Please do keep all the evidence as you may need this at some point as it does sound as though you are being harassed too. 

It is appalling that your sister has pushed you to this point, does she understand the seriousness of her actions? Is there a family member or a friend that could talk to her about how she is behaving and her bullying to get her to stop? Would you be able to get her blocked from your page? I would also recommend that you report her and the admin. I am sure that you have probably done this so apologies if I am repeating advice on action you have already taken. 

I am concerned about your mental health and how you are feeling so please get in touch with us on a more private platform so we can chat about this in more depth. We are here for you ok so do not feel alone.
