Hmmmm should I go see Michelle Obama for free or should I go to student health and regain the ability to swallow? Tough choices all around.
if you had to drop out of a class you are not a failure
if you had to take time off school you are not a failure
if you had to leave school for good you are not a failure
your worth is not determined by academia and this goes doubly so for disabled people and others for whom school is set against them
dropping a class and taking a break is what allowed me to succeed.
