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.

Serious note, I don't believe I have autism. I might be eccentric and a bit of a megalomania...but in healthy doses ya know. I mean Stalin went from farm boy dreaming of becoming a priest to paranoid dictator of the mighty USSR!

Yeah, I have high functioning autism. It's fine. Can't really picture life without it, but I could really use some social skills. I can't even function in larger groups.

The SS Autism poll

I'd suggest updating the poll (you can edit it), to say something like "autism spectrum," since "autism" by itself might be interpreted as more specific.

You might also consider adding a third option, like, "Not sure / maybe / a bit," but up to you. Personally, I've explored the autism spectrum before as an explanation for my differences, and maybe there's something to that, but I wouldn't say "I have autism."

The SS Autism poll

I wanted to this poll for people who actually have autism, I didn't add the third option because I don't want the self-diagnosed people who may not have it. (Although they are likely to click the "yes I do option anyway"

Fair enough. So, what about Asperger syndrome? It's a spectrum, after all, not always an in-or-out category (though it can be that, too.)

I have difficulty memorizing crap, and I seem to emotionally and socially incompetent. I don't see the big deal in being autistic as I perceive the world in different ways.

Dear Tumblrites: Despite your wrongly self-diagnosed PTSD, no line of scientific evidence suggests people can be triggered over the internet.

The only exception to this is if you have a seizure, but then again, that's triggered by epilepsy (i.e. rapidly-changing flashing lights) NOT PTSD.

RE: The SS Autism spectrum poll

I scored like a 34 or 35 on this test: http://archive.wired.com/wired/archive/9.12/aqtest.html

beat multiple people I know who are actually diagnosed with some variant of autism, one of whom told me that I might have autism. and I exhibit some of the outward symptoms of the disorder, like stimming, noticeable tics (which have been more cause of concern in and of themselves than any prospect of being autism spectrum, and it's currently diagnosed as a disorder on its own in my case), exceptional social awkwardness, preference for sameness, etc. But, I am a sarcastic fuck, which isn't very stereo-typically autistic.

I loathe self-diagnosis though so I haven't drawn any hard conclusions from it, and I'm not sure acquiring a diagnosis would change my quality of life at all.

But I imagine I'm closer to being "on the spectrum" than most people.

RE: The SS Autism spectrum poll

When a pro-schooler sees a child behaving in a way they don't like, they compile said behaviour in a nonexistent disease. Autism is one of those. An MRI scan allows you to really roughly see how a human mind is organized, so of course an MRI scan reflects a human's behaviour. Doesn't prove that the behaviours they dislike are caused by a defect at all.

The SS Autism spectrum poll

Trust me, no one here would argue that autism is any sort of defect, but you won't find many here who would agree that it is as unlikely to even exist as, say, ADHD or ODD.

What it means to be autistic - or, in the case of many who aren't, neurotypical - is another matter entirely.

Wes, yes, In extreme form, autism can look like that. It's hard to argue that isn't bona fide disordered behavior.

However, most on the autism spectrum can probably be described as having a difference, even gifts, more than a disorder, especially if they have access to a good learning environment and a supportive community.

Actual bad behaviours and defects they can't explain are sometimes blamed on autism too. There was a man on TV that just sat there and said "uuuhhhhHHHHHhhhHHHHHHHHHhhHHHHhhhHHHHHhhh" all the time, and then they said "This man has autism.".

What I meant was that self-injury (and the thing on TV, but yes, Brainiac3397 is right, it could be faked) is not part of the "symptoms of autism" yet those linked video's blame it on that.

RE: The SS Autism spectrum poll

Self-injury is more likely in an autistic but not really classified as a symptom. At most, it's an "at-risk" factor that comes into play.

MRI scans difference between activity in certain brain parts and also the reaction to those differences when put into play. This can be contrasted against someone who doesn't have autism and through enough samples can build a criteria of which to base symptoms and behaviors on.

Increasing a behavior doesn't change your brain anatomy just because you do it alot, it matters what your brain actually does and when it does it. Besides, are you really going to say that people who don't even know what autism is have been "faking" symptoms their whole lives to fool MRI scans?

Triggering works through the senses (i.e. smell, taste, touch, vision, hearing.) but it goes through real time; if you're not experiencing it in real life as it's ACTUALLY HAPPENING in your ACTUAL life, you CANNOT be triggered. The only exception to this is if you have a seizure, but then again, that's triggered by epilepsy (i.e. rapidly-changing flashing lights) NOT PTSD. Remembering a bad incident is NOT the same thing as having a flashback. When you remember, you think; when you flashback, you feel.

The symptoms of such a nonexistent disease are (like I already said) a set of disliked behaviors. A person gets assigned such a disease based on which disease's symptoms match with their behaviors. In this case it's autism but it could have been any of those diseases.

Firstly it's not a "disease" it's technical term is "disorder." And no, people are not assigned a disorder based on "difference" it is based on a well-documented contrast of the individual versus an individual without the symptoms. Saying otherwise doesn't make any sense. That's like saying depression, schizophrenia, or antisocial personality disorder aren't "real" disorders because they're just different behaviors exerted that were just "assigned" a disorder. Why single out autism? Disorders are very real.

Aside from that you can't fool an MRI.

TRIGGER WARNING: THIS TRIGGER WARNING CONTAINS TRIGGER WARNINGS!

Dear Tumblrites: Despite your wrongly self-diagnosed PTSD, no line of scientific evidence suggests people can be triggered over the internet. Triggering works through the senses (i.e. smell, taste, touch, vision, hearing.) but it goes through real time; if you're not experiencing it in real life as it's ACTUALLY HAPPENING in your ACTUAL life, you CANNOT be triggered. The only exception to this is if you have a seizure, but then again, that's triggered by epilepsy (i.e. rapidly-changing flashing lights) NOT PTSD.
