    Whatever you do, it's extremely important that you're sure you're earning useful education. Lots of people are graduating from school, only to find that there are very few jobs in their field.

    Health care is going to be in huge demand as people retire and new policies kick in, and some health care careers don't require 4 years of school.

    I've exceeded what I set out for myself and I didn't even graduate college or university.

    You can do this. We all are afraid - quite normal.
    It is harder when you also have a small child.

    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    Anniversaries and birthdays can be tough, reminding us of dreams lost, of what might have been. And you're right, having a supportive and helpful family is a big advantage for those of us who are SCI'd/disabled, and it's something I think those of us who have had that sometimes forget and take for granted when we look at or talk about our own successes. Hopefully you've got or can find super supportive friends where your family is lacking.

    No platitudes, but you're still young, so you've still got time to find a way to make things better. Hang in there.

    Anniversary time is always tough, but it does pass and gets less regretful (yeah I know about that bs...but it does). Hang in there, things have a way of crossing your path that can open new directions for the better. Here's a hug towards your way

    Buck has some sage advice here. Youre still early in the college game, I'd shoot for the prerequesites and then decide on a major from there. Kinda thinking of one of my tenants with that Master's in Art...working at the dermatologist's office part time

    Except I'm not early in the college game. I'm already almost out of financial aid. I'm too far in ....too late to change majors now.

    I like what I'm majoring in (fashion retail marketing & management). I've always wanted to be a fashion buyer. But there are only so many schools that offer fashion programs and the ones that do are really expensive.

    I also at one point really wanted to be an Anesthesiologist, but some careers are just not practical from a wheelchair. I made sure whatever I chose could be done from a chair.
