What does it feel like to be bullied?

Over 700 secondary school children in England were asked about bullying. Those who had been bullied said they found it stressful. Boys and girls both found the most stressful type of bullying was having rumours spread about them. They also found it very stressful to be physically bullied, called names, deliberately kept out of things or being threatened. Almost half of the victims said that they felt irritable, while just over a third said they felt panicky and nervous.
