Down But Not Out

This is not a post bemoaning all the things chronic illness has taken from me. I think I know exactly what has caused all the tragedies in the past year of my life, including chronic illness.

I applied for an administrative withdrawal from my first semester of grad school in order to go back to school without any F’s once my life evens out. Today I received the email saying that I would get my I’s turned into W’s.

I am extremely grateful for this, and all of my professors who have worked with me through this process.

I’d like to say that I am not a dropout – I am on medical leave and will be coming back to school Spring 2021. And I will get my degree, but I’ll probably have to move at a turtle’s pace. But as they say, slow and steady wins the race.
