Venting/Need Motivation, Reason To Care


#1

I was diagnosed at a very young age with Arnold-Chiari Syndrome and was fortunate enough to have had a support system to keep me going for the last twenty-nine years.

Problem is, that support system is rapidly going away, and I don’t feel I’m able or rather, deserving to go on. Every venture I’ve set out on my own has ended in failure, be it the long list of jobs I’ve applied for and lost, or a college education that ended in failure.

My parents have never said as such, but I know my physical disabilities and aforementioned college expenses are burying them in hundreds of thousands of debt that is constricting an already tight budget.
