Mom Shares Daughter's Story Online Of How Bullying Put Her In The Hospital

After her daughter, Sophie, was hospitalized for extreme anxiety caused by bullying, 29-year-old mother Carrie Golledge had enough.

In an effort to show people what an awful effect bullying can have on someone, Golledge posted a photo of her sleeping daughter on Facebook and spoke of the horrible treatment she'd received from her young friends and teachers.


The photo quickly went viral.

Many parents were terrified at the idea that a child could become so anxious through bullying that they become sick "over 20 times in an hour."

In her post, Golledge wrote:

"This is what bullying does...
This is my 6 year old daughter, hospitalised, due to bullying...
This is my child with such a caring heart that despite being so ill "doesn't want anyone to get in trouble"...
This is my child who has stopped eating, has cried herself to
sleep, had anxiety so severe she's up sick over 20 times in an hour through the night...
This is my child whose 'best friend' has emotionally abused her for so long she thought it was normal...
This is my child who has been in and out of hospital for countless trips due to being so sick with anxiety...
This is my child who was told off for 'telling tales at school'...
This is my child who has been mocked on social media by the bullies parents for just having such a pure heart...
This is my child who when addressing the issues with her school we were told "Its just 6 year olds being 6 year olds"...
This is my child who was told by the school she should be the one feeling ashamed and be snuck in a side door of a morning...
This is my child who her school failed her so badly that we had to move her schools..."


She concluded with an emotional call-to-arms for parents everywhere:

"This is my child who is one of too many that are going through this...
This is my child whose story is being twisted and manipulated by the very people that were meant to protect her at her school when she was in their care...
This is my child who doesn't want this to happen to anyone else. So this is my child's story we are sharing but she is one of many....too many!
Please help us share her story. Lets show her the support her school couldn't afford her.

No child should have to go through hospital treatment for these reasons.
