It can hurt just as much as any other kind of bullying. Gosh, I am so sorry that what she said upset you so much. You do not have to listen to her or have her on Facebook. You can delete her profile and block her from seeing yours. I think you go to your privacy settings to do this. It is quite easy. If she threatens to hurt you in any way, you can call the police and give them her information. I hope you have talked to your family about this as well. Congrats on telling your school principal. It was a very important, smart, and BRAVE choice. I am proud of you 🙂 I am quite worried for your safety and wellbeing at this time though. You took this really hard.
