I'm 18, going to a community college, coming from a single parent household, and because my mom makes "too much money" I barely qualify for financial aid. They obviously don't take into consideration bills and trying to feed us both. I started college this year obviously and I might have to drop out literally just because I can't afford it. I would get a job now but with the amount of doctors appointments I have coming up especially because I might be getting the VNS surgery, I see no point right now because I would have to take off so much. I have so many panic attacks because of this and have cried so much over this because I don't want to drop out and seem like a disappointment. I honestly am typing this maybe for advice but to get these feelings off my chest. If you have any advice or words of encouragement that would be great.
