► 030): What it means to be a Mentally Ill College Student
reading this makes me feel… just really good that others have the same problems i have.
i’m so bad at putting things into words, i go to therapy and get reprimanded by my therapist for acting too much like my father by letting my voice get louder and louder as i try to explain how i feel and why i feel that way.
my mother keeps saying she worked through college, other kids work through college, but they didn’t have to do it with my issues, and they didn’t go to an art school that’s got an intensity comparable to any ivy league college. i’ve had to go part time alot because of either financial reasons of being unable to handle the work in addition to my issues, and the few times i do stay late at school to work and come home at 2, i get yelled out for being out too late.
this quarter i had to drop out of a class i was really looking forward to and enjoying, because i couldn’t handle the high stress level of that class combined with the stress my mother unintentionally heaves onto me every single day.
it hurts knowing the people closest to me, and the people trying to help me, can’t understand what i’m going through, and sometimes it makes me feel hopeless, but just… knowing that other people go through the same things gives me a little glimmer of hope.
