RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

Re: Feeling suicidal? These might help... (hopefully)

How do I get my fear back?

I'm too reckless and carefree, I might as well be suicidal.

I mean I stole a tractor once. and stayed around just so I could look at the contruction worker in the eye and say

SS:I really love Tractors

CW:Your Tresspassing!!

Who am I? That is irrelevant.
What am I here for? That will become apparent.

Because of the risk involved, example, My Driving teacher overreacted and said I almost got us killed. Laugh

being carefree is fun

life is just blah blah blah. we hope for blah, and sometimes we find it. but mostly its blah. and waiting for blah. and hoping you were right about the blahs you made. and when you think you just got the whole blah damn thing figured out, and your surrounded by the ones you blah. death shows up and blah blah blah.

Re: Feeling suicidal? These might help... (hopefully)

I admit I have tried to kill myself more than once. I agree with not commiting suicide. I really wish I knew of this site back then to help me out. I somehow kept going I don't know how but I did. I met a few wonderful friends after I dropped out and got my GED. I couldn't be happier.

Death is the best answer. If you still fear death then you haven't yet won the game of life yet, and should keep living.

Re: Feeling suicidal? These might help... (hopefully)

After some talks with my classmates I think that EVERYBODY have those kind of thoughts I am not sure tho whether it is because of the age or courent situation. If you are alive that mean it ain't that bad, if you are talking about it it is not bad at all. When the brother of my clssmate killed himself it was quiet, no signs he went on the roof top with his pall said "bye" and that was it. I'd say that if someone is talking about it, he seeks help of some sorts.

Re: Feeling suicidal? These might help... (hopefully)

Neh, i need help with suicide.
I've attempted 6 times.
three times trying to jump, once attempting an overdose, well really twice because i tried disolving a whole bottle on pills in my soup...it made the soup taste terrible and i couldn't eat it. and the 6th time, i tried cutting myself and bleeding to death.

Now i know i'm always going to attempt suicide, and i'll probably try 10 more times in the next 3 years! But what i tell myself is: Killing yourself will only make them happy, they won't have to deal with you anymore.

Of course after that i attempted murder... And THEN i told myself: Death is an excape from pain, you'll only be helping them.

Sigh ;_;

ughhh. My brother always says im to cocky but i guess its true. If you look into life and keep cutting at the only real point for life is desires. Nothing else matters because it'll be destroyed. The only reason i probably havent killed myself is that i rather not the people who care about me have to deal with such grief
