Portland State University, 1990-1992, Master's Degree in Social Work (MSW)
Anyone who has gone to graduate school knows that it sucks. It was so very stressful. I was trying to work 32 hours while going to school the first year. By the end of the second year, I was only able to work 8 hours a week. I was so incredibly stressed, mainly due to undiagnosed social phobia. I ended up returning to my food dependence and putting on some weight.
I think I got the right degree for me, but I sometimes wish I'd received more clinical direction. That's the trade off for not having gotten an MS in counseling psych, but oh well.
