    In my second year as a Psychology Major (4th year in college) I gotta say I've come a long way from being a BME major. Originally I thought I wasn't going to graduate on time, but It turns out I just have 10 more credit hours until my degree!  While progress has been difficult...

    I need help. This doesn't involve myself,

    but I'd like someone to vent with and could possibly diagnose a family member of mine. It scares me on what she's doing and I need help. Maybe just someone to tell me what they think is going on. Just something to lead me. Thank you, and please contact me if you can help.
