Afternoon my lovelies xx
How are you all today? Good I hope. I can finally say that I’m starting to feel that way – for the first time in a very long time.
So, as you can see; it’s been quite an incredible two weeks. In fact, its been an incredible two years. Since I discovered I was autistic, I have travelled a very long and difficult road. A road which has eventually led me to today.
Today is a significant day; as it’s the day many people in the past have told me to aim for. So many people before today have told me to do this and I’ve always found an excuse, but no more. No more excuses, no more avoidance tactics, no more “I can’t”; for whatever reason.
Today; I can, I will and I did.
I reported the crime to the police. Finally, reported it to the police and asked for something to be done about it. I feel like a massive; massive weight has been lifted from my shoulders. And I feel good.
The police have accepted it and I’ve given an initial statement. And they’ve passed it on to the governing force for the school I was at. Time will tell.
But it’s not about that for me anymore. You see now I can breathe again, I can start to live again and finally begin to repair the damage that has been done.
The perpetrators, I don’t care about. I suspect the police will; but that’s not my prime concern. I know they did what they did and it hurts immensely, but it’s time to forgive and forget. A childish prank that went too far.
The school, now that’s a completely different ballgame. They had a duty of care to ensure I was safe and protected; and they failed in that. They failed to the extreme if covering up the incident from my parents and removing the bullies. Ensuring that the whole arena looked like nothing ever happened.
Well it did. And I’m alive to tell the tale. And now it’s been told. And the process of justice for the cover up begins…
