I'm new here, just wanted to say, wow! I wouldn't like a family member opening my mail or telling my personal business to a friend or disputing my diagnosis or any of that other rubbish. My goodness. No wonder you're troubled and needing to unload! You really don't have much support at home, I'm so sorry.
I have come to realize that my emotions are just as important as the so-called "normal" person's--That if I am sad, I have every right to feel sad. That sometimes, if I am down, it's not because I have BP, it's because I'm sad, and I shouldn't have to rationalise it. Sometimes BP people get sad for situational reasons. Wow. What a bloody enlightening idea. LOL. That's right. I'm so tired of hearing-> a normal person is down, yeah they're sad, if I'm down, it's because I have BP.
Do what your heart tells you. Why let someone tell you what to do. The holiday with your friend sounds wonderful. And why not go to uni? Why postpone it? You've the drive now, I say full steam ahead and take no prisoners. University calls, I say listen.
Take care...((())) And a hug from a newbie. Sounds like you might need one!
