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.

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.

Teacher dies of suicide; jumps from roof of school

Translated from Dutch by myself
http://www.nu.nl/binnenland/4392351/doce...redirect=1

Quote:The Stedelijk Gymnasium in Den Bosch sent students home on Monday after a teacher committed suicide. The maths teacher jumped from the roof and died.

The police only has to say that it was a suicide. According to a spokesperson, a few students saw the teacher jump off the building.

Omroep Brabant says that the teacher committed suicide at about a quarter to ten. Many students arrived at school by that time. They were taken to the auditorium before being sent home. The teachers were briefed as well.

The Stedelijk Gymnasium has around 800 students. The schoolyard has been closed off, but the school is expected to reopen next Tuesday. Rector Etha Schoemaker speaks of a "sad day". She said that parents were called after the incident to pick their children up from school. On Tuesday, children were with their mentor.

The school says on the Internet that victim aid is available for the students. Education alderman of Den Bosch Eric Logister says to be deeply shocked and that care goes out to the family of the teacher, the students and the employees.

State Secretary of Education Sander Dekker wishes the students, employees and family of the teacher the best of luck. "What a horrible event in Den Bosch'', said the minister on Twitter.

The direction of the school was unavailable for comment and will come with a statement later.

Teacher dies of suicide; jumps from roof of school

He was actually my teacher. No idea on his motives though.
In 2009 I started at this school. I was so full of hope, really wanted to be there. Sadly a few months prior to that I got lyme disease. It went mainly untreated so eventually it became so bad I couldnt go to school anymore.

The dean wanted to kick me out but my parents begged for me to stay. The teacher that died was my mentor. He should have informed the class of what was going on with me, send cards, send homework (I and my parents asked for that, I sod esperately wanted to keep up with school!). I dropped out in November, the first mail with homework didnt come until February.
And only work from his class (math) not the other classes. So even if my health would have allowed to make all the work that was send to me at irregular timings, it would have never been enough to pass the year.
And never a question of care, of how are you, do you have a diagnosis yet (I went nearly a year without any diagnosis, and 6 out of the 8 years misdiagnosed)...
Only a "hope to see you in school soon". He also made comments, just like others, that he disbelieved I had anything real or too bad.
All in all my treatment by that school was horrible, and he had a hand in it. Because as the assigned mentor, it was his task to coordinate that I would get an education, as good as possible...His task to show care and compassion.

It was definitely not only him though that handled my illness wrong. More people were responsible.
The healthcare in Holland is a complete and utter failure (PM me if you want to know how so).
And even majority of my family didnt understand, gossiped about me and made terrible comments.

By now lyme has given me such complications that I might die. Lyme can cause cardiac issues which is what most likely happened to me, and there is a suspicion it can cause increased risk for blood clots, which happened to me.
So in the grant scheme of the hell year 2010 he is definitely not the person i blame the most.
But he did have a role...

By now I am also a fervent advocate for unschooling, so it is not like I particularly care for school education...But maaaaaan I had wanted to go to a gymnasium and then university since I was 4, this was like a dream for me. And to then see my dream, and also what I thought was the only education (NL is quite anti homeschooling, unschooling, sudbury and any alternative education forms) possible, smashed like that, really hurt.
And how the majority of people I knew (school, doctors, family) handled my illness also gave me severe trust issues and a deep rooted cynicism. So yeah that hurt.

Everyone is mourning him at the moment. I am sad he committed suicide, as that state of mind is not a good one to be in. I have had suicidal depression in episodes since I was 7, and also in 2010 when all this occurred*, so I can imagine how he must have felt, and I wouldnt have wished that upon him.
Due to my own situation though to see all the comments saying he was a brilliant teacher, they hurt!

Anyway that school situation is over, I cut ties with those family members, and I dont have to get my yearly stay at home dispensation anymore (long Dutch story again) and walk past this building. So other than the lyme is all over...A
And that feels strange. Really strange. Because it is over but I am still affected by it, and the lyme isnt gone ofcourse.

*In 2010 I eventually got the diagnosis CFS/ME and the prognosis of "25% get better, 50% stay the same, 25% get worse". I was 12 at the time and had terrible joint ache, muscle pain, fevers, and so much fatigue I spend about 9 months in my bed...What is worse than that? Stagnant 50% so there is a 50% chance that would be my life?! As I really didnt see the chance it would improve without any treatment or the "treatment" (fucking medical abuse!) that I was receiving. Which was walking therapy which is shown to be terrible for CFS/ME and only made everything worse. So yeah that made me very suicidal and it has been one of the darkest years in my life...And to then have your school and nearly everyone else drop you like brick and go through this all alone...Horrible.
