In homes all across America, young people are frantically trying to come up with an imaginary illness, because they can't bear another school-day filled with ridicule and torment. Mothers are crying themselves to sleep because they see that their child is in pain, but feel powerless to help. Friends and acquaintances are "looking the other way" because they can't stand the thought of being verbally and emotionally tortured themselves.
