I'm being bullied, please help.
After school, I walk home alone. Almost everyday, this group of girls (Their names are Alissa, Grace, Lula, and Leslie) walk up to me and say things like
"You're ugly and stupid."
"Why are you so weird?"
"You are such a loser."
"You have no friends, admit it."
"Nobody likes you because you're annoying."
"What's that gross thing on your arm?" (My PICC)
I've tried things like ignoring them which makes it worse, talking back to them which also makes it worse, and just giving them a dirty look and walking away. Then they will get really close to me and say
"What was that? A face? Wow. Do it again, see what happens."
Then I run away because I'm scared. They've never actually punched me before, just a few light hits on the back. But it still hurts. I am really scared of telling a teacher because then I think they will hurt me even worse. Please help, I don't know what to do.
