But has your family mocked you for being therian? I'm sure they wouldn't; after all, they're your family!
As for being bullied, keep in mind that it's full of good people who are ready to befriend you. And from the looks of it, you seem like a great guy. Being shy is a horrible thing, and I can relate. I'm so shy to the point when someone I actually know talks to me, I respond while looking at my shoes; no eye contact. But I'm lucky that in my school, we all have a close bond, because it's a very small school. So it helped get rid of my shyness a little. But still, when I'm in a new situation, I just lose it.
If for whatever reason you get thrown out, you've got a whole fandom backing you up.
