Emotional Health at University
I had the dubious luxury of living at home through the early years of my undergraduate. While it grounded me to some degree and eased some of the financial burden, it didn’t insulate me from the stress of taking 6 or 7 courses a term. It was a heavy load which often had me working on projects until I knew that if I didn’t leave soon, I wouldn’t make the last bus home. I did make it home every now and again while my parents were awake, but they knew the last thing I’d want to talk about was how school was going. The problem was, there were times when this limited discussion to the amount of rain we were getting and other weather phenomena.
