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.

Woahhh. I was just thinking about you coming back the other day. That's crazy.

I think mostly everyone from our time is gone. Or has changed their username. You can do that now. But I think it's obvious who I am >.>

EDIT: Oh, I also got arrested back in January because I beat my mom. Things got out of hand and she got pretty banged up. Charges were dropped though.//

I've been alright. Things have been up and down. Got diagnosed with PTSD, got hospitalized again, ran away like 40 times in a month. Good things though, been cut free for almost 3 months now, on my way to recovery for my eating disorder, been with the same boy for six months on July 1, havent ran away since January, went to drug therapy to kick my Molly addiction. Things are looking up Smile

And lol Hey Anna. Of course I still remember your username lol

I'm back~

RE: I wasn't entirely sure where to put this...

Yikes. I hope things go well for you. PTSD sucks. I know I have it too.

I don't think I've been cut free for that long. my scars are still pink.

Eating disorder.. I can't imagine you with an eating disorder.. well I kind of knew. But you're so skinny as it is..

Congrats on the boy ;P I'll beat his ass if he hurts you.

Congrats on kicking the addiction. Was this recently? I remember last time I saw you.. yeah.

We should chill sometime.

RE: I wasn't entirely sure where to put this...

My scars from like November are still pink and very raised. I'm pretty sure one of them needed stitches but my fear of hospitalization outweighed my common sense.

As for the eating disorder, it really started freshman year. I hit 82 lbs at 5"1' before anyone realized.
