I pretended not to care and tried to smile, relieved that they wouldn’t see the tears on my already wet face. ‘It’s only a joke, Steve, don’t be a baby,’ they’d say. It wasn’t very funny to me. I couldn’t swim. Every time they did it, I was convinced I would die. The bullying started a lot earlier than I even realised at the time.
