"I was bullied throughout my schooldays for being overweight, but in some ways it helped me.

"It hurt me a lot, especially as a youngster, but eventually I just got so used to being knocked.

"Because I got bullied so much, I actually worked on my confidence and somehow managed to build up my self-esteem.

"Rightly or wrongly, I learned to accept the bullying and it made me a better person in the long run.

"Even though it hurt, it was important for me to learn from it.

"I thought if I could try to get some control over the bullying, I could perhaps get through it.

"I don't know how I coped. I just think I got so used to being bullied that I let it go. It almost became a part of my life.

"When people called me fat it would just bounce off me.

"It made me witty because I got so used to firing quick, one-line answers back at people."
