Thanks everyone! I've had a couple of good days in a row now, and I'm hoping for a couple more until I see my therapist on saturday. I never thought that I would get any response to my post. . . and I never dreamed that I would get nearly this many. Thank you so much for your kind words and wise advise. They have given me some stregnth and helped to put a lot of things into perspective. I'll let you know how I'm doing.

Well, I've decided that it is probibaly best to drop one of my classes. (Thanks Cici and Hazza!) I'm unbelievably overloaded right now, and not handling the stress well. (This past weekend was a nightmare.) And, the state just changed certification requirements so that I don't need one of my classes. However, if I drop it, I drop 1/2 credit below the cut off for full time student. Without fulltime student status I loose my medical insurance. . . ie: therapy, antidepressants, etc. It's a catch 22. . . I feel like either way I'm doomed. Do I drop it and pray that the insurance company doesn't check in the meantime? Or do I keep it, not do well, and sacrifice my GPA (I'm a transfer student so I have very few classes towards my GPA. I mess up just one class and my entire GPA is doomed. . . not something I'm comfortable with. . . one of my perfectionist traits)? Or do I keep it, try to keep up with everything, and probibaly end up with a nervous breakdown. Qutting therapy doesn't really seem like a good option right now. Any suggestion or gems of advice?

thanks!

Your GPA is doomed? Doomed? will it be a o.5? 1.5? What is doomed?

How will a 1/2 credit effect it that much?

Didn't you bring your GPA with you from your last school?

I have found that a high GPA soes not necesarily mean a person will be good at what they have chosen to do in life A high GPA means that person can jump though the hoops better than some otheres.

Will you lose scholarships if your GPA goes down?

I don't think the ins. co. will catch up with you that fast but ...nver know.

Can't be that much longer in the term can it?

Drop the class...settle for b's in everything else. And FLY!!!!

You are the best gift you can give your self.

Good luck

Check with your university medical coverage policy, I think most colleges provide free counseling for up to six sessions per year.

I haven't been a full-time student in about 1 1/2 years, and I think you can appeal to get coverage in special cases. Talk to your therapist about this. She will probably know a little more about your school's policies.

As for GPA, my GPA dropped severely after I was date-raped last year. It went from like a 3.4 to a 2.7. Soooo, I went to talk to an adivsor in my major. If you do community work and get work experience in your field, plus study hard for the GRE or whatever test you have to take to get into your graduate program, and get a higher score, your GPA doesn't have to be as high as it would if you got a lower score.

I used to have the same overwhelming conflictions about school. In the end, when you seek employment, it isn't about what grades you got. It's about work experience, selling yourself. My fiance has a terrible GPA because he had substance abuse problems his frist 2 years in college. Now he has an internship at Merril Lynch doing financial planning. He just left his GPA off his resume, they never check.

There are alternatives. Talk to an academic advisor or a career counselor at your school. It make s aworld of difference.
