College taught me a great deal about why I did certain things growing up; coming to college made me more informed than ever about myself as a human being. I was finally able to put a term, a real term that also told the disorder’s symptoms and treatments. I was thrilled and instantly fell in love with my career choice.
If I had just one of the textbooks as a teenage that I bought in college, I probably would have still made some reckless mistakes, but I wouldn’t have made the ones I did.
But hey, I would not be the person I am today without those mistakes 🙂
