Okay, so I have a few obstacles. I'm 43, hate math, and have to work full time. I've had sedentary jobs for twenty years and though I'm not overweight or have any known problems, I'm not in the best shape. I have anxiety issues and was treated for depression twelve years ago, but only because I had several reasons
for being depressed. I have worked so hard on myself! I took a basic math class, I've had counseling, took antidepressants for half a year, took a whole semester of General Psychology so I could understand myself...resolved past issues...I took myself apart like an engine, cleaned everything and put it all back....see...good as new! I don't look at all of this as permanent barriers...but most of my family and friends do...they won't let me live any of this down. Plus, they say it's too hard to get into a program. I'm guessing I'm just going to have to show them I can do it...but I was wondering if anyone else has obstacle-busting they'd like to share so I know I'm not alone?
