Fear of returning to college
      04/13/08 03:36 PM

Hi all. I have been HIV+ since 1990. My diagnosis resulted in my dropping out of college to get a job with health insurance. I have been with the same company since. I have never been fulfilled with my work, and have experienced quite a bit of workplace harassement I recently took off two weeks sick due to depression. I feel trapped in this job because of the insurance. I recently took a trip to my old college campus and now have the bug to go back. My biggest fears are how can I quite this job after so many years, how will I pay for college, and most importantly how will I get my meds if I leave my insurance. I have been in such a deep depression lately thinking that my life has trapped me. I have luckily never gotten sick due to the HIV, but sometimes wish I had just died like so many of my friends from the time period I was diagnosed. Can anyone offer any advice? I wish there was government funding to help us get low interest student loans or grants but I cant find anything. Thanks for the support guys.
