A Place In The Sun's Laura Hamilton reveals she felt suicidal after being bullied at school

Laura Hamilton has revealed she was left feeling suicidal after being bullied during her school years, in a recent interview alongside her mum Lynn.

‘I remember getting called into the office at school and them saying if I didn’t want to come in, I could do it at home.’

Going onto dub her alma mater ‘a tough school’, she claimed that ‘only about four people in the whole year’ wanted to work.

Laura’s mum Lynn, 67, added: ‘She got top of the class again and the teacher called us in and said, “I’m really sorry, I’m not going to be able to put Laura at the top of the class because she’s been top of the class for the last however many weeks.”‘

What is Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP)?  

Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is a disorder that can lead to easy or excessive bruising and bleeding.

The bleeding results from unusually low levels of platelets — the cells that help blood clot.  

Formerly known as idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, ITP can cause purple bruises, as well as tiny reddish-purple dots that look like a rash.  

Children may develop ITP after a viral infection and usually recover fully without treatment. In adults, the disorder is often long term.

Immune thrombocytopenia usually happens when your immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys platelets, which are cell fragments that help blood clot.  

In adults, this may be triggered by infection with HIV, hepatitis or H. pylori — the type of bacteria that causes stomach ulcers.  

In most children with ITP, the disorder follows a viral illness, such as the mumps or the flu.
