As of midnight last night, I have finished my Associates in Business! I've been working on the degree for two years, while also working full time...plus, you know, family stuff. Some parts were extremely rough when I started to feel overwhelmed. After crying every single day of my Algebra course about halfway through the degree, I finally broke down and enquired about ADA accommodations. With documentation from my pdoc, I was granted extra time to complete assignments, and they sent me software that would read the course text for me. (I'm BP and ADD). I am SO glad I did that! Anyway, I earned the degree online, and I don't think that I could have done it any other way with the combination of bipolar and the logistics of life...In two weeks I will be starting on my Bachelors in...get this...Psychology! I think that having bipolar kinda gives you an awareness of others and their behavior that people who aren't as SELF-aware might have. That is why I don't think it is too odd to want to major in psychology. What do you think?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
