Yes, I've been bullied for a long time now, but I think it's time that I vented a bit about my experience.
So today, I'm walking outside on the school field, and an old mate of mine called Joe Cappoci and some new friend he's made who I frankly couldn't care less about, walk up to me and ask me if "I'd like to eat some peanuts." This may seem perfectly innocent on the surface, but I have a fatal allergy to nuts.
So I pass it off as coincidence, maybe some other kid told them that I liked them, but it becomes clearer when they tap me on the shoulder and ask me with a grimace, that this is no misunderstanding. So I tell them to step off and I put the headphones back in my ears to block out anything else.
Then, Lewis Brown (a boy from school who lives near me who bullies people for attention) starts following me around with his cling-on bunch of mates, and I know that something is kicking off. He comes up to me in a sort of waddle, and asks me in a posh accent, "Oh Chris? Would you like some peanuts?" He knows damned well of my fatal allergy, and the extent, but he still enjoys mocking me about it, and sometimes even throwing them at me - once I went into anaphalaptic shock, and had to be injected with adrenaline.
So he is holding something which looks like a peanut, so I back off. He then laughs eccentrically and throws the improvised projectile at me. It misses, so I run. He throws another, and it hits. He's gaining on me, so I have the age old question to answer - fight or flight? I choose to fight. There is no other option - I run, he strikes again, and who knows what that could result in. So I kick him in the leg, and hit, but at the same time it doesn't hit his limb like I want it to, so it is pretty weak. He laughs, and then it seems like the whole of Year 9 is.
There are people laughing at me through the court where they play football, there are people laughing at me from the field, there are people laughing at me all over, and I hate it. It is now that I get hit with one of those hardened-lollies, all covered with saliva. I choose now as the time to run, and I hide in an alcove under some stairs until it's all over.
The school has tried to deal with these people before for similar incidents, but it all ends in nothing, they just take it as a joke.
What the hell do I do? :(
From what you wrote I am getting that you aren' t good in fighting hand to hand so I' ll take the whole fight him hard enough to show him who is the best (which is of course the "easy way" to win this fight) The "medium way" is to find someone stronger and who is opposing Lewis Brown and get under his/her wing for protection. The hard way is of course, well, hard: be defeated, tell him that he is stronger, better, smarter, whatever. Of course from this action you may be targeted by other bullies so I do not suggest this option.
If you were in a school where I have some power I would be glad to take you under my wing but I have no power in english schools, sorry...

If you cant physically kick his ass, I would take it to the teachers/principal or go this his parents
I hate to suggest this but....
I"m a member of the Blunt Object Club.
The great thing about being a member is that owning a blunt object isn't illegal nor will it be confiscated if found in school.
The key about joining the club is to find the right blunt object and make room for it in the backpack.
When confronted with multiple targets reveal your blunt object and threaten to beat the mess out of the lot of them and promise to aim for teeth and crotches as a priority. With a surly tone proclaim loudly that "To DAY IM HANDING OUT LOLLY POPS AND ASS BEATINGS." Pull out your pocket insides then say. "AND I'M ALL OUT OF LOLLYPOPS"
Hey sometimes a bully needs to laugh before they tuck tail.
If push comes to shove, fire on teeth and crotches untill you see blood and then back off and promise more. To the guys you didn't get promise " You better be on my side next time".
The Blunt Object Club: Beating the Hell out of Bullies for 5,000 years
Talk to teachers or principal, bullying is no joke and they'll nail this kid like a hammer. Though in the case that the kid gets kicked out of school or something, people will just blame you or tease you more, never know. In any case, try to switch schools, these people are twats trying to show off. By the time they're in university or college, they'll be nothings.
Well being mentaly strong is a good start, keep telling yourself that your a better human than they can ever hope to be, and if the worst does come and you have to fight learn where certain points are on the body that hurt more than others, such as knee caps, a strong blunt blow to the gut and dont forget the good old groin shot.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.;3516729go this his parents
His family (especially his mom) thinks that the word 'Autism' translates to 'mental case'. When my family tried to make friends with them when they moved in, we were good until my mom mentioned it. She said, "I've heard about kids like yours! I don't want my Lewis messing around with boys like that!"
I swear it.
Kill him. The Blunt Object Club Sounds like a Good Idea, but, try choking him. It's pretty simple, I seem to have a penchant for choking people. If that doesn't work, go to an administrator. I've had a lot of experience with bullies, well, not a lot, but a fair amount.
I'm way cooler than n0e (who isn't though?)

I hope dearly there is sarcasm in that post..
I had the same issue with a group of guys when I was your age, except Im not allergic to anything. My problem was I had a cracked rib at the time for an accident I was in.
Some boys thought it dreadfully fun to, sneak up behind me, and jab me in the ribs. Excruitating pain.
In the end I went to my Year Advisor about it, she spoke to the group, nothing changed. It eventually became more serious and I decked one of them, got a suspension, but at least it never happened again.
Your best bet is to make friends with some generally nice people, it may seem that there isnt many in the school, but maybe there is. And the fact they are playing on a weakness you have no control over, prove you are better than them. Cowardly bastards.

2 things ya'll can do. 1. Go rat on him...in truth with him throwing nuts at you and causing you to go into anaphalaptic shock is attempted muder why? what if didn't have your adrenaline thingy with you and died beacuse of that, whos fault would that be not yours but his. 2. I'd say make peace with him...but his IQ seems to rivile a rock so don't bother with it. You say have autism? Yeah trust me buddy I babysit a boy with Autsim he's more in the higher needs area then you are. Still I've noticed a pattern with people with Autsim there IQ is well above the normal person. If you are better person..shrug it off..but if the nutter still bein' a bitch rat on'em..thats my advice
