First day of college yesterday went ok, way more homework then I thought there would be for the first week. Blew me away and now I am trying very hard to find time and stay awake at 3am to get things done. Feeling a little bit overwhelmed but excited at the same time for the future once I get a good paying job and off SSI. Just know this is going to be very stressful and will need a lot of support through it all.

I am doing good so far thanks for the support, just overwhelming still but I found I was in the wrong course. Luckily it was only a couple days into it and both the college and fafsa were fine with me switching to another one. I am doing so much better, both with focus and stress level now. Makes a huge difference on my sleep and eating habits too. I was so happy with how understanding they all were about it. ;)

Oh great! ^O^ yeah my husband is in college he wanted to do a class online and one there. He said he likes the school one better than online because he can ask questions right away.

It didn't work out, and I withdrew today. I feel like a failure, but what is new.

Awww, I'm sorry. Don't feel bad though , this isn't the end. You can try again later. Time flies by so fast before you know it, you'll be in class again. Don't despair , you're not a failure.

Thank you both very much. I just don't know what I am doing honestly anymore. I have been craving alcohol so bad, and if I don't take a drink each day, then it is a success. It's my only goal I can worry about and the place I went for outpatient therapy can't start me for a week or two.
