So I've got bipolar I, and I'm ill physically half the time, but I really want to go back to university to do a masters. So I'm wondering: how hard is it adapting to university life if you have a disability?
I'm deciding between applying for an on-campus masters or one that's remote.
And additionally, how much would I be missing out if I did a remote masters as opposed to on-campus?
Or to consider the other side: How difficult has it been living away from your "support network"?
Because stress aggravates bipolar, I've been avoiding stress like the plague, but I don't want to spend the rest of my life keeping my head in a trench down waiting for life to roll on over the top of me.
I would love to hear experiences of disabled students who have done or are doing a masters.
