Her friends seemed to change as they grew up. Jodee ended up feeling like she never fit in. Because of this she felt like an outsider.
One by one her friends started to exclude her and be rude to her. Jodee moved schools because it became a serious issue and the same things happened at the next school and the one after that. People just didn't except her.
After all of the bullying that was occuring her parents were worried and thought she was depressed. This resulted in her having to go to therapy and being put on meds.
At this time and years after her chest issues became noticeable and painful. She ended up having to get surgery for this, because of the surgery she gained a lot of self confidence.
I'm so Happy mom!
