Hey, I really hope it does improve and that your psychologist can help you. School is going really great for me now, actually. I am about to finish up a Pharm. Tech. program, and get a job in the pharmacy. Then I am going to go to a University and go into art. :)
I actually got really lucky when I told my friends why I dropped out that semester, my grandparents and stuff like that where harder to get to understand, though. It turns out one of my friends has suffered with depression since he was a little kid, one was bipolar, and a few others had anxiety problems themselves, or someone in their family did. My now fiance understood completely because he had to watch me suffer through all of it, and even had to suffer himself a little too.
Even the friends I had that weren't close to me understood and were very caring about it. And I agree we should chat sometime. :) I tend to get on a night ( I live in Texas, so in that time zone lol).
I really wish you luck with telling your friends. I also didn't tell ALL my friends that it was caused from a drug, but I told most of them, and they found it really hard to believe that that could happen, but they trusted me. Just found it a bit bizarre I guess haha. :)
