Making Assumptions - March 18th 2017, 06:56 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I have a terrible habit of making assumptions about situations that haven't happened yet. I went back to school, I'm supposed to finish over the summer but walk in the spring. So far, I haven't gotten any graduation updates and people in my class were talking about an e-mail they got about their cap and gowns, and I never received that.

I checked my online portal and it's telling me I haven't met all my requirements which makes sense because I'm still finishing up - but it doesn't make sense that I might not be allowed to walk across the stage.

If I don't I'm literally going to be so disappointed. I told my boyfriend but he doesn't think it matters and long as I eventually walk. But I went back to this university even though I despise it, and I just want to be done, not to mention, I had a lot of people wanting to coming, and some of them are from different states...so having to tell them it's not happening is going to destroy me.

I e-mailed the registrar to see what's going but I just have an overall bad feeling about this and it's effecting my depression. I've had an awful week. My depression has taken a toll, if one more thing happens, I don't know what I'll do. My mind keeps saying "kill yourself," "you could ram your car in that pole," "cut yourself to deep," etc. But I don't think I'm at the point that I would act upon it, I think I'm just upset.

I'm trying to snap out of it. Because today my boyfriend and I are supposed to be going to a concert and I really want to enjoy myself but I'm finding it really hard at the moment.

Well, I do think that you deserve the right to talk to them about it.. and contact them. You've the right to file a complaint if things don't go according to how you want it to.

If you need a friend to rant to, I'll be here.

It's called a tunnel because there's ALWAYS a light at the end.

rant to me if there's anything!



As usual... pm me if you are ever having a tough day, and I'll respond immediately.

You guys deserve to be happy no matter what.. okay? You people are a bunch of lovelies ... and no matter what, you people deserve to be happy.

Hi Cass,

I'm sorry to hear that you might not be walking across the stage this time around. When I was graduating from High School I didn't have enough grades to graduate with my friends. I know how hard it is, but as your boyfriend said, you will eventually walk across it.

However, it seems like there is still a chance that you will though. Don't give up on it. If you start to give up, then your work will start to slide, and then that will hurt your efforts even more.

I hope this helps, even a bit. I will definitely check back to see if you've updated it at all once you get a reply
