A couple of months ago I was outside chemistry class. It was near the end of the period, so I was waiting to do in to the classroom. I overheard a girl in my year group talking to her classmates, some of whom I thought were my friends. It was clearly about me, as I heard my name being used in their discussion. She said something about me which was quite fast so I couldn't make it out. However, what I did hear has stuck with me since - 'he's a freak - I don't like him'.
I have never felt so low after hearing her say that, and there hasn't been a day since it was said (in April) that I haven't been thinking about it and getting upset about it.
I have Aspergers, so I guess that I am a bit socially awkward. I faced a lot of bullying throughout years 7-11, so I thought that when I went to sixth form it would be better (I was in Year 12).
Should I just accept what she said, and call myself a freak for the rest of my life? Was she being mean, or is this true/normal for people to say?
I KNOW that they were talking about me, and worse, she said it to people who I thought were my friends when I wasn't there, and they did NOTHING to defend me. They practically agreed with it...
