Going to school are the best days of your life! You've got no responsibilitys whatsoever unlike adults in the adult world worrying about bills your unable to pay etc! Putting food on the table etc etc.. being an adult is even worse!

Life can be stressful and at times it can feel like too much to handle. I often recommend that people do take time to slow down and find something they enjoy doing in order to make life a little less stressful for themselves. Talk to a friend or even a professional, like a school counselor or even a therapist. Talking through your stress is another helpful way of breaking it down and making it more manageable. It's never really good to just let that stress go unchecked and fester inside of you.

I dont want to live right now, school is super stressful, what should i do?

You can only fight stress with stress in your situation. Make yourself more stressed out for studying instead of getting stressed out at school without studying. If you're smart, get useful stress and study, get your head out of the sand. Whining won't help you. That's exactly how I did it and completed my studies with perseverance and discipline. Everything else came last for me.

i had 12+ subjects a month for 4 years.
English
German
Latin
psychology
philosopy
chemistry
Physics
mathematics
Music/Art
biology
History
IT
and many more crazy stuff..

It was stressful but I kicked my ass every day trying to learn everything and I had fun. I learned in the car, at home, in the disco, on the beach, in the toilet no matter where I was I always had something with me to learn.
I was not a Nerd just Smart;-)

Now it's your turn, prove you have the balls and can do just as well as I did

Honestly, the best way to put things in perspective and to distance yourself from stressors is to make meaningful social connections - personal social connections whenever possible. Try to meet new people, talk to friends, spend some time with them etc. Playing video games etc. can be helpful in the short term, but for the long haul that's what I'd recommend. The more alone you are, the more insurmountable whatever issues you'll have will seem.

Things don't get worse - it's always a balance/trade-off. You gain stuff, you lose stuff.

There's always reason's to be miserable, but there's also reasons to be happy. If you can afford to log into a video game forum you have more reasons to be happy. Overwhelmingly so.

It is just phrased as dismissal of whatever OP is going through right now, "talking about real stress," which isn't helpful in the slightest. Like being stressed right now doesn't lead into effects when they grow up. Or if they're stumped now and when they grow up could think "times were easier back then" or "wow things haven't changed still." Like school isn't horribly stressful and ruins people's mental health. "Stress free days," like they didn't start with "I don't want to live right now"

This is not advised for most. It's great that you could handle it, but adding stress on top of stress may lead a person to a mental breakdown or even worse.

Take some time, enjoy the things you truly like, try to sleep earlier; try to have a balanced diet; take care of your health. Life is about balance, tipping the scale this early might have some effects down the road. There is so much forum users can say.

Maybe if OP was more descriptive in what was stressing him people would be more sympathetic and be able to offer more advice. Making a thread titled life sucks and then just saying school is stressful with nothing else will never get much reaction from people.

"People" you mean just you. You and I can both scroll up and see there are others who still reached out as best as they could. Regardless of the amount of information provided, it's no excuse to handle it like you did. You can't really be expecting a teenager to just openly detail his stressors, both from the perspective of "really? on the internet?" followed by the emotional intelligence of a teenager.
