To everyone in this amazing community,
I’ve been avoiding doing this for a long time now, and today I’ve finally mustered up the courage to face my anxiety.
Let me begin by apologising for my irresponsibility. I know I shouldn’t have vanished without saying a word. I have a tendency to avoid things when I’m stressed.
For the sake of transparency, I will try to be as honest as I can be.
There was an episode of domestic violence in my home. Needless to say, that as a student currently living abroad, I was extremely worried.
This was untimely as it also coincided with my family undergoing some financial difficulty. It’s nothing too severe, but I have since had to take a part-time job to pay my way through med school.
I know I should have voiced this out earlier, and not dropped the compendium like a sac of potatoes, but I chose to avoid the subject altogether.
I’m truly sorry.
P.S.: Not sure where this should be posted, so I shall leave it to the discretion of the mods.
