I went to college with heavy SZA at the time. Ran from the first simple classes, went back, was hospitalized 2x going thru it. I took only 2 classes at a time (mostly). I was scripted Xanax for as need be (surely in public speaking!). Over the 4years it took to earn my *** in Electromechanical Eng., I found a good balance between that fine line of super smart -vs- a complete nut. Graduated with honors, sat on the Eng. advisory board for 2 years. Highest 1st year earner. Blah blah blah...

I did medicate with cannabis (now prescribed) as need be and this did help depending on the situation.

5years now fully employed in my field. Went from 5 years on SSI to 5 years making a good living. Still very SZA, stopped cannabis weeks ago for a few weeks and life went off the cliff.

Point is; if I can do it, others surely can (I'm a complete wreck), but my E-cigg, some cannabis, and a lot of time and it happened Peace.

I went and it was a real struggle. I graduated top of my class, deans list etc. I either was doing course work, going to school, or playing Skyrim till I passed out to relieve the anxiety and paranoia.i played Skyrim over 1000 hours in the course of two semesters

That sounds like a good choice. I'm pretty sure that all you need is a BA/BS for this .

I am getting a bachelor's in graphic design and animation technology. I am currently making straight A's but I do have accommodations that lets me turn in assignments four days after the official due date without having points taken off.
