I am a failure... - December 4th 2014, 06:01 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I self harmed again, after three weeks of being self harm free. I have a plan to end my life - I know that I should tell my counselor this, but they'll put me in the hospital yet again, three times is too many for me. I feel like a failure - I'm failing one of my classes again and I won't be able to earn my degree. I get financial aid and it pays for everything - books, classes, etc..., and I will lose my financial aid because I've been in school almost five years and have no degree to show for it. I don't graduate, I lose my aid and there goes my ability to stay in school - since I can't get loans or anything.

I suppose that I could get another job and put back some money to go back to school, and pay for my classes out of pocket, but that will take forever to do I'm just at a loss.

Sparrow, reach out for help. Colleges have resources to help you get compassionate release and help you get through college, trust me. I have a friend that had to do inpatient treatment for her eating disorder, and our university allowed her to take it even if the semester off broke the rules of her scholarship. I also have friends who were able to withdraw from individual classes for mental health issues. Your university wants you to graduate...partly it's because they want your/the government's money, but they do really care about your success as a student, and if you're dealing with a medical issue (which INCLUDES mental illnesses), you need to receive the help.

College sucks, with or without mental illness. You deserve the treatment you need. College can always wait. You are NOT a failure.
