My mom’s friend that she works with is actually closer to my age and it turns out she went through same thing with student loans that I have and she owed the school money too. She even dropped out of school for the same reason as me since she has depression too and she has scars on her arms too.
I owe the school over $4,000 since I dropped out plus student loans. It turns out that if I pay the collection agency 5% of that $4,000 they will turn it over back to the college and if I pay payments on it for 9 months then they will release the hold on my transcripts and I’ll be able to go back to school again. Also, I can still go to school just not get financial aid so if I take some online classes at the community college here it will be really pretty cheap and I can pay for those myself and my mom agreed to help me pay for them
This has been a huge source of stress in my life so at least it’s a little better now.
