I had to step away. My health does come first, and I had to take care of that. Those who know my core (theatre education at Trollwood) know I don’t give up easily, if never, but I had to this time.
It shouldn’t have come as a surprise. I communicated my illness and status. I expressed that I was having issues. It escalated quickly, and it wasn’t until my medical team deconstructed the information that it was decided I had to step away.
I’ve had to make a couple clean cuts. For my sake, I just couldn’t stay connected. I need to finish this degree. I have a lot of work that’s left to do, and I’ve been putting it off for far too long.
But why does it get put off? Answering that may unlock the key to my degree.
I’ve stepped away, and now I’m here all by myself.
