#7 Real places to get help if you need it...

Posted by Shane Dawson on 14 July 2013 - 09:19 AM

Hey guys, this forum is supposed to be a place where you can talk about things with people who are like you. But sometimes it gets REAL and you need to talk to people who are trained in helping you get better.


Here are some phone numbers and websites, but remember that if you or someone you know is ever in serious danger, call 911 immediately.


National Suicide Hotline:


1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433)
1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255)
National Eating Disorder Hotline:

Teen Support Center

#50860 UPDATE: What the "help line" is for - Please Read

Posted by SD Army Admin on 25 July 2013 - 10:24 AM

Hey guys, it's the SD Army Admin.


I've been going through the forum over the past week learning about what you guys like to talk about and how I can make improvements. However, the "Help Line" has really stuck out as a very hot topic area.


For the most part, there are some GREAT discussions going on in here. People are talking about having a hard time in school, with their families, their weight and so on. However, there are some posts which are going too far and saying things like:


"I'm going to kill myself"

"I want to die right now"

"Goodbye everyone"


We all know that teen depression and suicide is a real thing and when it comes to very deep feelings of inner hurt, as a community we have to recognize that these kind of posts are serious. So serious that they're meant for you to call a suicide or help hotline. Again, that number is: 1-800-SUICIDE. 


"The Help Line" on the SD ARMY is a place for you to discuss issues that happen in your life. It is not a place to say you want to kill yourself or that you want to die as this is a serious issue which demands professional attention, not feedback from peers.


We all want this forum to be a fun, safe place for people to talk. Use the help line to ask for constructive feedback on tough things, not a place to cry for help and have other members talk you off a ledge. This behavior actually makes others feel helpless because they want to help you, but are never sure that it will work. It's emotionally exhausting. Imagine doing that with HUNDREDS of posts every day! And the facts are, it won't help either person feel truly better.


So. Please be there for each other, but always ask yourself before you post: How can I ask for help in a way that will make me get the answers I need and so that other members feel like they've helped me.


Be well. Be happy.

#8141 Shane Saved My Life...

Posted by kenzie99 on 21 July 2013 - 06:17 PM

Hey guys! So I just wanted to talk about how shane saved my life. Right before shane came out with **** up, I was depressed and didn't think much of the world. But right in my darkest time of life, shane came out with **** up and said that he knows how some of us feels and that he hopes it helps. And it did help. Shane's song helped cheer me up and realize that it's not my fault people don't like me for who I truly am. And when I make a mistake, it's ok and you will be forgiven. So thank you shane lee yaw, for making me feel like I belong in the world. How has shane helped you guys? I really want to know! Thanks for reading and you all are gorgeous so don't forget it ;)

#177523 ***please Read Before Posting (Lauren Edition)***

Posted by KidCheno on 09 January 2014 - 02:01 PM

I've been meaning to write this post for awhile.  





All the Lauren threads are getting really annoying and it's pretty obvious that you're only making them to get noticed by Shane.  But in reality they are all the same and don't need to be made. 


It would be nice to see some new content on this section and to actually have more discussions of the actual Podcast. 



Bumping an old topic is 1000 times better than having the same topic made 1000 times.  It just creates forum clutter and looks ugly.  





Thank you.

#40683 Reason Why People Cut Themselfs

Posted by CheyenneLovesFoodBro on 23 July 2013 - 08:55 PM

Okay excuse me children, but you're acting like 5 year olds. Arguing is dumb. Cutting is a serious thing and it shouldn't be called "dumb" that's insulting, even if you didn't mean it that way. It's not like people who cut say OMG THIS WOULD BE SMART. No one thinks that. It's just something that helps sometimes. I've only cut myself once about a year ago, and it was number 6. It just let all my emotions go. And after crying for days before that, it stopped the crying. I wouldn't ever do it again. But, that doesn't make it dumb. Its peoples escape. You can't judge them for that.

#14640 I Don't Like This Section

Posted by Iggy on 22 July 2013 - 01:51 AM

It upsets me to see that there are kids and teenagers on this section who are talking and discussing the lows in their life. I don't like seeing people who are depressed and are in need of some help in their life.


PLEASE listen to shane and seek some professional help. Coming onto a forum and discussing problems may seem like a good idea to begin with, but will eventually lead to becoming an area which is pointless and just a discussion of problems. I once was a victim of bullying, so don't start hating on me.


I know how it is to feel like you're all alone and i also know what it feels like to think of these thoughts. Remember, suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. 


Please actually try to visit some of the links that shane has posted in this forum, or try and seek some medical help. This condition is a serious problem, and needs to come to an end. Not only is suicide a terrible way to end your life, but suicide is also one of the biggest reasons for deaths in this world.


Remember there is and always will be someone who does care for you and will help you through your problems.


Love you all <3

#40489 Reason Why People Cut Themselfs

Posted by Hayden on 23 July 2013 - 08:28 PM

None. I never cut myself because I love myself and smart enough to know that this is the dumbest thing to do. EVER!

Some people really struggle with self harm and calling it dumb is actually majorly offensive. Please think before you speak next time.

#197830 Shane Literally Saved My Life. Can You Relate?

Posted by NerdyDeductions on 22 April 2014 - 04:38 PM

After my parents divorced my life flipped. My dad hasn't been the best. He's lied to me for nearly 7 years. And although 'everything is gonna be ok', it never is.
My first problem was when I was 9. my dad's new girlfriend and her daughter hated me. One time, her daughter locked me in her room with her and drew all over me, proceeding to throw and stab things at me. My dad was so blinded by love, he couldn't see anything. I cried to him but he'd just shout or cry back. 'What did I ever do to you?' 'Your pathetic and worthless!' 'If you don't be quiet, I'll shove my foot so far up your ass you'll never cry 'mummy' again.' And her daughter would always tell me I was useless and to go die. I slipped into depression after crying myself to sleep every night, even when I was with my mum. My hair was a mess because I kept pulling it out (of my scalp, not a bobble. I didn't cut because my mum would notice and I probably didn't know what it was), so I began to get bullied at school too. They called me 'dirt bag' 'ych a fi (welsh for you are yuck)' 'specky foureyes' 'p*ssy' and 'vampire' because I have unusually sharp canines and I'm very pale. I cried every day at school, but often in the toilets where no one could see me. I felt like dying. Hell, I even sat on the windowsill, ready to jump.  After I refused to see my dad, he broke up with his girlfriend. I thought everything was over, but it wasn't.
About two months later, the council turned up at my school. My aunt had reported me for things I didn't do. Terrible things. I was scared id be taken away from my mum, so I developed separation anxiety. And once again, depression came. My dad argued with my uncle and aunt and we haven't seen her since. My uncle has made more of an effort to forgive and forget. I was still emotionally scarred and with comprehensive school (middle school) fast approaching, I thought I was going to die.
For a while everything stood still while I attempted to make friends. But no one seemed interested because of my pessimistic personality. But I found a small group of friends that started to help me get back on track. Then I found out.
My dad had drafted a text on Notes to my mum. Of course, I was intrigued. So I read it. 'Im sorry, this has happened again. The test results came back and it's my son.' I confronted my dad. He told me that he slept with his girlfriend's (see above) babysitter to get back at her for something. And then got the babysitter pregnant. So I have a little brother.
I was back to square one. I was failing my classes, losing friends and getting bullied again. This one boy thought it was funny to tie me to the stairs, empty my bag in the bin and run off with my music folder. And music is my life. My one career path. I cried myself to sleep for the first time on nearly six months. School was getting harder. From the age of 8, I was looking after a girl with learning disabilities. I would teach her spelling, take her on trips, help her not to cry and bully her bullies. Suddenly, it was vice versa. And I was too afraid to tell the teachers. My little brothers mum was harassing my family. And my granddads health wasn't great. So one time, he collapsed when she came at him. I love my granddad and I was petrified he was going to die (hey I was 10).
For nearly a year, everything was ok. My dad was getting a better attitude but I still couldn't laugh or smile. I had this feeling that there was something else.
There's ALWAYS something else.
Me and my best friend (who puts up with all my sh*t, thanks girl) were at a Les Miserables workshop with my cousin. 'He's nuts,' she laughed 'he told me his 'biggest secret' ever.'
'Which is..?'
'That your dog you had before your parents divorced, didn't die.' I looked into space. I had a dog before my parents divorced. She 'died'. She was old and it was understandable. So she had to be dead. I shook it off and ignored it for about two months. I was at my gran's and me and my cousin were designing some new sketch videos for our future channels. 'I have secrets I'm not supposed to say,' he whispered. I laughed.
'My dad has a picture of your brother. But not your sister.'
'My sister?!'
'Yeah she moved away or something,' he shrugged.
'Anything else to add?' I snapped, not believing him.
'Yeah.' He leaned over and whispered the secret he told my best friend. I told my mum and we both confronted my dad. It was true. All of it. I had a SEVEN year old sister and my dog didn't die, she was given away. My heart was broken into pieces and the past three years came flooding back. But then I was healed.
One girl in my PE class was laughing about this thing called 'YouTube' and these guys called 'Shane Dawson' and 'Joey Graceffa'. So I looked them up. I watched one of Shane's videos and something weird and unusual happened. I laughed. Not a fake or sarcastic laugh. A real genuine laugh. And a real genuine smile. This random American dude had managed to do something that no one I knew could do. And that was make me happy.
Now, you ask my friends 'is Ella always sad?' And they laugh and say 'no!' I can sing happy songs and enjoy life. And I wish I'd found him long ago. And even though my dad is still making problems, I don't give a sh*t. He might get his licence taken off him, lose his job and our new house. But that's not my fault. And for once, I'm not depressed about it. Shane Dawson taught me not to give a sh*t about haters. And to prove how mic I don't care anymore, I'm cutting 7'' off my hair to give to a cancer wig charity, the day before my 13th birthday.
So shane dawson, I owe you my life. Why? Because you saved it. I was suicidal before I found you. So if your reading this, I love you love you love you love you forever and ever!!! I'm so much happier now. And I don't pull my hair out, ever! I may get the odd emotional breakdown but that's because comprehensive is STRESSFUL. You never get a motherf*cking BREAK!! To you Americans, Comp is middle school with high school drama. It is... *shiver*. And I get panic attacks because that part of my life will never leave me. But I have friends to help me through it now.
Anyway thank you shane!!!!

#197794 What Do You Guys Think About Muslims?

Posted by KidCheno on 22 April 2014 - 08:53 AM

See, what people don't seem to grasp is that Muslims and Christians have the same beliefs they just differ in one major way: the role of Jesus.


Muslims, just like Jews, recognize Jesus as a prophet... Not the son of God.  Just like Muslims and Jews split when it comes to the heir of Abraham (for Jews it's Isaac and for Muslims it's Ishmael).


But like, all The Old Testament/Torah/Qur'an s**t is THE EXACT same thing with minor differences.  They all have the flood story, they all recognize Abraham as the founder of their religion, and they all start in the Middle East and expand outward (Sorry everyone, but Jesus wasn't white)


Muslims only have a bad image because of extremist terrorist groups.  But thinking all Muslims are like that would be like thinking all Christians are like Westboro Baptist. 


In summation, Muslims are cool.  Terrorist aren't.  People should do research before they blindly hate a group of people.

Posted by KidCheno on 15 November 2013 - 05:57 AM






Like, you can't deny the chemistry that you two share.  The fans demand less #Shoey and more #Shamp in your videos and Podcasts.  Especially after this: 





Come on, do you really think we wouldn't notice?  I've never seen you look this happy with Lisa or Joey.
