> then they said that I wouldn't qualify because my injuries were self inflicted. And the p-docs were like 'its okay you can do the course (the last course required for my degree) again and get an A next time around!!!' and I was like 'of course I can but that won't help my GPA'. Eventually... Someone got that. Signed off on the compassionate. The things we do... There didn't seem to be another way. And... I'd do it again if I needed to.
I did desperate things for grades too, but none of it helped me. I ended up with bad grades nonetheless.
When I OD'd seriously I did it to get a note to get out of an exam. I didn't want to die, but I could have. I've come close to doing it again in the past. That is my biggest danger I think, right before an exam and thinking I am not ready. I've done some desperate things in that time.
