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.

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.

So we talked about suicide at health class.

They just made fun of it and laughed.They made jokes about people jumping off of buildings like that's the only way of suicide.I never new people could be THAT idiotic to laugh at the third leading cause of death in the U.S to young adolescents.They called people who do suicide crazy and of course there was bias opinions about it's never the way.I'm starting to be convinced the people who do suicide are very smart because I don't see people's ignorance turning around ANY time soon.I hate people who can't take serious topics like this seriously.

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

RE: So we talked about suicide at health class.

The people who laughed at people ending their own lives are idiots and should be ridiculed accordingly. Yeah, while some who commit suicide are think things through and can change if they seek help, others people's life is just filled with so much crap and strafe that suicide is there final option at peace.

People who commit suicide are usually not in the right mind frame. I wouldn't say that the decision to commit suicide is very smart, but for many people who seriously contemplate it, it seems as if it's the only option.
But I agree with you that people should take these kind of topics with a more sensitive and open-minded approach.
Maybe they were just laughing and making jokes because the idea of it was to intense for their small minds to comprehend, and felt uncomfortable with the topic.

Ignorance is a common side affect of attending public schools. I view suicide as a serious topic. Maybe they aren't familiar with the subject?

RE: So we talked about suicide at health class.

Most of the time, people who want to commit suicide don't reallywant to do it, they just think they do. If they wanted to be dead, they would be dead. Failed suicides, unless by some freak accident, are your subconcious' way of telling you "don't kill your self"
That's really fucked up that they laugh at suicide though. That just means they have never been down that dark path of depression yet.

Actually GreenLamp it's a charter school,I guess it's true that people need jokes because their too ignorant to talk about death.This was around sixth grade actually,not to day so sorry if I mislead you.I'm in seventh now.I guess I was getting flashbacks of worse than usual memories of more human ignorance.

RE: So we talked about suicide at health class.

I don't think we ever talked about suicide in my health class, but we did talk about other things like AIDS (to which my idiot redneck classmates knew plenty of because all they want to do is have sex with the school sluts while they date the nice virgins to make themselves seem respectable) and all throughout those kinds of talks I pretty much just tuned everything out because we get taught about it for a total of 3 years and 18 weeks (health class was required in middle skool and only 1 semester of health class was required in high school) so I atleast knew enough to get past it while being able to ignore the dumb jokes that people just would not stop making...this is why i hate my skool and can't stand my math classes (i never have any friends in them and i always get put in the class with the most rednecks so it's rarely quiet)

I have to say though, if I ever hear someone on the street joking about anything suicide related I may just walk up to them and punch them...or it their car if I know it's theirs.

The problem is that a lot of people don't have balls if you want to do it fucking do it. Properly, tie the knot well if you're hanging yourself, and don't shoot yourself and become a brain damaged vegetable.

that's a bit tougher to do because you tend to flip and spin around while falling if you're not careful...although i have to admit, the way that blood splatters when someone hits the ground is kind of cool (i'm not saying to go out and do it or anything, it just looks cool is all)

Shooting yourself in the heart still wouldn't be recommended, you'd have to wait to bleed to death and for your heart to shut down, and I imagine it'd be a lengthy and painful process.

RE: So we talked about suicide at health class.

we probably really shouldn't be talking about ways to kill yourself here, but for using bullets...if you wanted to make it quick you could set up a reeally complicated system that when triggered will fire either

A) two 12 gauge shotguns into your head
or
3) several different caliber guns that will fire into your main parts of your body and thus making the bleeding happen faster

those are 2 more options from me, give me reason and i can think of more (most of my ideas will include complicated mechanisms most likely though)

The less you try to control things, the less you need to.
