The Human Aspect of Exelle

I felt so ashamed that I was considering dropping out of my bachelors when single mothers seemed to make it just fine. Studying to become a specialized cancer nurse deeply motivated me and entering into my studies I was very motivated. I felt I had to succeed at work, school, family and socially, but when I started falling behind at university I kept it to myself as I was ashamed and scared to be a failure. This drained my energy and I felt trapped and alone in my own isolated life.
