So, I have attention deficit disorder and am studying full time at the OU, a humanities subject. I'm 23, had to quit "finance" at brick uni because it just wasn't for me.

But I don't have any other responsibilities other than our dog. No work, no kids, etc. Is this weird? Honestly, I'm struggling with the increasing difficulty of TMAs/essays!

Just focus on school for the moment and once all the essays have finished then maybe rethink but just try and enjoy the moment as much as you can and not add any extra stress to whats already there

A full time occupation is good enough for most people standards, be it a job, study or self employment of some sort.

Some courses and/or people simply don't mix well with other work *shrug* taking on too much at one time generally means that everything suffers.
