My life has been thrown in a dryer, bitch-slapped, left at the altar, and pissed on. I guess that’s the only way to describe how shitty this year has been and its barely started. What’s worse is that even though I may be going through a rough patch, I’m sure there are people out there whose lives are about ten times worse. I should probably be thankful that I still have two parents that love me and a bed to sleep in. But then when times are hard we hardly ever look at the good parts in it. We automatically look at the negative.

I went to see a counselor today at ASU. Not initially but they thought that with everything going on in my life the advising department figured it might be a good idea…at least to look into it. The person I talked to advised me on simply withdrawing for medical reasons instead of the sympathy withdraw. According to the counselor, I have a lot of issues and I bottle things up until I can’t anymore and then it becomes a major problem. I’ve known this for awhile but I guess I was too stubborn to actually want to think or talk about them.

Even after the first consultation however I think it’s going to be beneficial. This summer is going to suck making up my classes, but I think, as does the counselor, that it will be better for me in the long run.

But hey, depression. It’s what all the cool kids are doing these days!

I jest.

I wouldn't blame you for taking a month or so off, just to get your emotions in order, and then going back. There's absolutely no shame in it. With everything you've been through in the last few months, I would completely understand it.

i also really think that taking some time off could be really beneficial for you. if only to allow yourself to really process everything that's going on in a way that feels helpful and respectful for you. (and take care of yourself, and rest, and recover, etc)
plus, i can't tell from your post if this involves going to therapy, but i really think that therapy is awesome and a great way to work through things. so...thumbs up.
