Teen Refuses to Let the Bullies Win

FRIDAY, Nov. 23 (HealthDay News) -- Jamie Isaacs was just 8 years old when the bullying first started.

Jamie said the whole situation was frustrating, and it certainly made her angry at the time. "I wouldn't say that we're angry any more," she said. "I feel like it happened for a reason."
