Anon or delete please.
I’m finding college really hard because of my eating disorder and I think I may have to drop out (but I really, really don’t want to)
Under the circumstances I’m quite a high achieving student so my mum keeps saying it would be a waste to drop out. I want to go to university but my dad says there’s no point because I’ll only get ill again and waste money. They both have opposing views. Neither of them take my eating seriously either, they’re aware of how ill I am, yet they just say stuff like ‘I bring it on myself’ and ‘I deserve it because I’m doing it to myself’.
I have always had dreams of independence and a career in psychology, but I can’t come home without feeling knackered. I can’t concentrate and read anything without my eyes going blurry, my head is always pounding. Though I have been trying and putting on weight (my bmi is currently 16.0) I still find everything very hard because of concentration.
I take History, Philosophy, English Lit, Psychology and Critical Thinking – two of them require a lot of work so I’m not sure whether I could self-teach like how I did at GCSE.
I’m not sure whether to stay at college or just drop out. Advice please?
