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.

This is why I never trust mental counseling unless I'm forcibly and involuntary committed to it. In which case I'd probably be enough crazy to again distrust them.

Man existed fine without having shrinks insulting them(minus the crazy rulers and their insanely spoiled children. They may have benefited from therapy)

I'm glad I'm avoiding special services (on purpose) as I enter university... I've been through enough of that shit in school. I don't need that crap pestering me for the rest of my life.

Plus it's like a criminal record(no matter how minor). They see anything about getting "psychological/mental" help and suddenly they suspect you of being crazy, and any action you might take(no matter how harmless) will be exaggerated in their mind as a sign of insanity.

^Yeah, that's pretty much how they operate. There's a "suspect" way of doing things, and it's pretty disturbing.

today i added another comment to the article....i'd appreciate everyone's feedback, and if they feel so inclined, to add their own comments to article....

what i said basically in my newest comment is that it is possible the staff made ian feel *worse* -- thus violating one of the oldest principles of the medical/helping profession: First, do no harm.

Thanks to the fucking cocksuckers at my old school, I'll never be able to buy a gun. They called me crazy and committed me to an insane asylum. Communist faggots.

You can actually get that contested in court and even wiped from your record.

Barring that, you can still buy a gun from a gun show/friend/black market without a background check.

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. Remembering a bad incident is NOT the same thing as having a flashback. When you remember, you think; when you flashback, you feel.
