“When I was bullied in the mid-1980s, there weren’t any resources to help me cope and heal.” Nerona said. “The internet, support groups, and even Oprah’s self-help influence were non-existence.”

Nerona hopes to not only create more awareness of bullying but to share coping mechanisms that might be helpful to older adults. “One of the important lessons I’ve learned is that self-care is not a project but an everyday practice.”
