"I was cyberbullied by a girl I used to call my best friend."

She made me feel bad in every way possible. She even turned everyone against me - all the people I used to call my friends became my enemies! I hated my life and wanted to kill myself. It took some time, but I finally went to the school counsellor who told me about Kids Helpline.
