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.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

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.

-SoulRiser

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. My contact details are here.

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.

Yeah, it mustve been part of the bone that did that, and the repeated kicking. If only I was bigger or stronger then her, I couldve escaped. But I was tied to a post.

RandomHuman you are my role model.Well second to SoulRiser.

Congratulations humanity,because you refuse to let go of the old and evolve you actually make people believe in 2012. Not only that, but you're the only species on Earth that were able to make it possible, now we get to sit until we die because we couldn't get to Mars. We have failed as a society and don't deserve our gifts to survive for this long. Maybe this is why dinosaurs are extinct, we sure aren't any better than the dirt you say we're created from. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pla...DvwSOFto#! Noo

I am not. I wish all this bullshit had never happend to me. If it hadnt, I wouldnt have this crappy leg witch will be giving me problems for a long time. And I wouldnt be stuck in the shitland that is the junky part of detroit. And wouldnt have to worry about the idiot possibly getting out of jail. It must be kinda hard to belive because not many people have idiotic parents who do this shit. And apparantly by all the shocked posts, not many people can walk on a ruptured achilles. It rook me a long time to realize not all parents do this to their kids. It took me years to realize what the idiot was doing wasnt right. I thought everybody with normal parents was lieing. It pisses me off to think of anybody who would lie about anything like this. Why would anybody do that? I wish I could just wake up one day and have all this never have happend to me. But, I cant get whatever I want. I am really lucky I got the idiot in the slammer before I would go crazy and turn into the jackass type she is.

^ I guess its hard to belive this. I understand. I had a very hard time beliveing everybody who had normal parents. I thought they were lieing to be annoying, or for me to belive them, and then made fun of me for beliveing it. I am really glad I stumbled upon this forum, it helped me realized my mom was a nut and I had to get out. Thanks to everybody who helped me realize I had to call the cops. When I am an adult, I hope to somehow help kids who have an idiot as a mom.

I'm glad to see you're still capable of compassion. Many people in your position would sooner shun the whole of society.

I try not to do anything like shuning the whole of society because I want to be unlike the idiot. She probally wanted to turn me into a cold hearted asshole like her for her own enjoyment, and I dont want that to happen.

In that case, take care of yourself. Living well is certainly the best revenge (nay, justice) in this case.

Yeah, leave if she gets out... even if by some chance she learned something in the program and becomes nicer, she's gonna have to do a lot of hard work to earn your trust again, if that's even possible. And you shouldn't have to live with her until she does.

RE: Surviving this year

The dont know when she will get out. They say she will be in there for at least a month, potentially longer, depending when she passes the program. The cop that she beat up said he will try to give me as mjch advance notice as possible. If the idiot comes back and i cant run away, I will never trust her. If she gets out and I have to run, I assume I will need more money then needed to live here, I have heard it is one of the cheapest places to live. I would try to live somewhere rural, so she would never find me. And in really rural areas, they may not force me to go to the hellhole called school! But if I run somewhere nice where people follow te laws, I wonder if I would be allowed to live myself. But random strangers would be better then the idiot!

I'm not saying I told you so, but I suggested running, so yeah. (I'm not trying to be insensitive, I just react to situations like this online). Anyway, how far south would you go? I doubt she's going to find you down in Brazil. And you have some seriously epic survival skills, being able to walk on a ruptured achilles. You should consider using that to your advantage. Tribesman perhaps, or solider.

I miss the trolls,they made us feel smarter.We need to rant on our own forum on a famous pro-school website and argue with trolls like the good old days.

Not only that, but you're the only species on Earth that were able to make it possible, now we get to sit until we die because we couldn't get to Mars.
