My mom's been frustrated at my lack of a work ethic. Please don't pile on me about how I'm lazy or bad. I hate myself for it, too. I got so depressed at college that I stayed in bed until my mom came to rescue me (about a week or two). At home, I couldn't concentrate at community college or motivate myself to do work, so I just found out I'm on probation and likely won't be going back in the short term.
This is distressing, as I was a great student and a relatively happy kid in high school. I scored a 2150 on the SAT, and had a GPA in the high B range in honors and AP classes.
My mom wouldn't let me quit college at any point, unless I had a solid job lead (which is impossible to get when you're depressed), so don't tell me I should have quit while I was still on good standing. I wanted to. I asked for a hiatus or a sabbatical, but my mom said that those were for good students and that I needed to stay in class to get my grades up.
Anyway, I've recovered to the point that I have the energy to sometimes do the things I want to do, like homebrewing or canning, but that I don't usually have the energy to do chores around the house in a timely manner. This has my mother irate. She wants to send me away until I get better. Apparently, money is no object, because she's been telling me that I'm going to this Dynamy
program if I don't change in the short term (which I don't think I can do without a breakthrough or new medication, which would take about a month to kick in).
Anyway, what's the green's thoughts on this program and this state of affairs? Am I better off staying home and seeking local internships (like I want to do)? Should I consider another program? A paid internship program like Americorps? Any option is welcome. I'm desperate, and my mom urgently wants a change.
