So my English professor gave us a straight forward final, an Memoir about you and your education. (Since we've read the memoir of Tara Westovers "Educated") and when beginning writing the essay (Memoir) about my education, which i thought it would be simple, turns out when i looked back i have realized it was nothing but pain and sadness. i've described my years when the administration classified me having disabilities, me being bullied, my depressive state and how i have nearly committed suicide because of the stress back at an early age. when writing i realized i couldn't fit my struggles because we had a limit to write. (Which was 5 pages) i requested my professor to allow me to do more and she said no because she had 100 other students to grade as well. Since writing i realized how it helped me looking back all the struggles i've had and it gave me some slight relief just writing my story on paper.
(I wanted to share my story but it would take long describing it here) So i wanted to know what's everyone's struggle with your own education, stress, depression, and how well you did to come this far? And i know this is a very touchy subject, but i hope it helps you as it helped me.
