this is an article my T recommended to me on a study that proves that the effects of childhood bullying often last into adulthood. the study stops at approx 10 years later - after the bullying events - but i think many of us could attest to the fact that the effects can last a lifetime. http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/02/20/effects-of-bullying-last-into-adulthood-study-finds/
