Good morning everyone! So I have begun discussing my options with my professors, I will be finishing out my semester despite recent setbacks. Some of my instructors have granted me extensions on work and I will be discussing the possibility of an incomplete with another professor. It’s important to remember that ensuring you provide your best work is not a failure, something people in my position tend to forget this. To anyone who feels they are stuck and can’t make it through remember that you are worth quite a bit to those around you and that asking for help is not a failing of character. Some of you know this is something I have openly struggled with throughout my illness. I’ve had to adapt so that I would be able to continue to tread through the minefield that is chronic illness. It is all too easy to feel that you are asking for too many exceptions and that you are not worth the trouble, don’t. There is no correct way to handle chronic illness, there are no handbooks for how to handle chronic illness [well there are, but they are horrible].
