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.

I'm slowly forgetting the English language

Aside from my friends, you guys and on MSN (1 third spoken 2 thirds typed) I never use English. Never. At the moment I am speaking more Japanese than English. In a conversation without any of the previously mentioned things/people I am gradually having more and more trouble finding the right replies. Sure, I can start a conversation, but what's the point when I can't reply?

Also, it doesn't fucking help that I'm being forced to go to the school councillor today to assumedly put on drugs for clinical depression and speech impediments. Fucking shrink.

Re: I'm slowly forgetting the English language

I too am forgetting part of the English language, but I'm sure yours will be a lot better than my own and I have problems when it comes to looking at the right response so I have to notify people of what is the source of the problem. I'm slowly am forgetting to produce the exact linguistic thoughts and my mind seem to moving to the vision part. Since when these drugs help on the language issue anyway and lack of socializing isn't an great sign of clinical depression.

Isn't there something that you can refuse treatment or drugs...?

But my only suggestion is that you try to speak more in English. Even when you're speaking Japanese, think: What would I say in english? Hope it helps

Re: I'm slowly forgetting the English language

You guys are pathetic.

The inability or lack of desire to socialize is a disorder. It may not be depression, but it's definitely something. Humans are naturally social; we depend on our social behavior to survive.

When I started learning Japanese, I started forgetting how to spell a few English words.

Also Bobman is just trolling. Smile

I'm not in my basement, I'm in my room. The term "basement dweller" is incorrect. Furthermore, "basement dweller" only applies to an adult who doesn't have his own place and lives in his parents' basement.

And I'm willing to bet you've never been laid either. Not by someone of the opposite sex, at least.

Have you ever considered that there are asocial human because of the reason is that they can't deal with the people's rejection and they decide to depends on their own to survive simply because they don't trust other and they do got the brain to solve things for themselves or they have an loss of sense to deal with hearing which have an major impact on these people socializing time. The only reason I socialize is that I like to do it sometimes, but I don't socialize for my survival at all nor I find it that useful unless for getting a girlfriend or boredom which led my instinct to talk to a female or doing an certain job, other than that I find it completely unnecessary to socialize in the outside world. The only thing you need to survive with your life being solitary is your senses and your brain.

So there's something wrong with me because I hate socialization- and that hate came from other people messing with my life.

Actually, I'm gonna have to agree with BobManPerson. I'm not saying there's something wrong with you, but it's not like you don't have a choice here. Quit acting like the world owes you something.

AWOL - don't worry. There's nothing wrong with you. Just try to speak english more, and Japanese less. Or try to translate Japanese speech into english speech so you dont forget.
