Hi there,

I haven't posted for a few months. I began grad school and just completed two classes this summer. The encouragement I received here really helped me. I did work at the same time, but I have found that it was probably more stress than I should carry, even though it was fun. I am considering using my student loan and going to school full time and trying not to stress about work. I have always worked when I was in school and I am having a hard time imaging just going to school, even though it would be the best thing for my health. I know other people have just gone to school, right? It seems like such a luxury, and at the same time, as if I am being irresponsible. Isn't that weird? I mean, I have the loan. Any thoughts? Oh, I only need to use the loan for a year, then I will be done.

Thanks,

Maitri

Maitri,
 
I am glad that school is going well for you.  I have worked full time and attended college as well.  I've also gone without work and as a full time student.  It was tough either way, but I like going to school full time better than the full time work.  I think school kept me grounded, but I have also done bad because of a manic episode.  That's my biggest concern, having an unstable moods.  Best wishes on your decision. :-)
