Good for you for going back to school and trying to integrate into society. I was diagnosed schizoaffective at age 21 and never evolved enough outside societal connections to have an official foundation outside the stereotyped "downtrodden" and disabled lifestyle. There are a few reasons for that. Mostly I think I avoid it and have interpreted the standard 9 to 5 world as an enemy. This is probably cognitive dissonance. Plus I always assumed the world would just crap out one day anyways, and if I am supposedly disabled, why bother trying?
So again, I applaud your efforts to still get educated and make it work for yourself. "The courage to come back".
Welcome to ATS!
