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.

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.

Thats a good point. Apparantly from all the reactions online and the doctor thinking the mri is broken, not many people can walk on a ruptured achilles. I dont know if I would be accepted into the army or anywherrle to be a soilder, because I am a girl and I am almost 14. And even if I canI will be forced to stay in detroit untill idiot gets outta jail or I turn 18. I bet I could escape, but I will probally want my achilles to heal first.

Too late, the faggy alter ego of zagix is taking a vacation. Try poking people from ScholasticDementia.

I looked it up and I need to be 17 to join the army. And besides I think I might not want to. I dont want to kill other people. Is there another thing I could do when I am an adult? And what is a tribesman?

faggot* (I'm going to have to request a mod to come in here and forcibly fix this aren't I?)

so how about no more posting in here until something happens that doesn't relate to mem being men, women being men, or little girls being FBI?
