TQC, I'm graduating with a BA on the 21st. I've made the decision not to go to graduation. I don't have any friends here and honestly I feel like shit about the whole experience. My family keeps asking me about the graduation ceremony and I have no idea how to break it to them that I don't want to go to it and would prefer no celebration of any kind over it. I have a history of agoraphobia and all of my mental issues are untreated right now. It's making me sick to think of being in some HUGE ceremony with thousands of people I don't know and then dragged out somewhere. I don't really like talking about mental illness with my family, so what's a good way to break it to them that I just want to be left alone about graduation?
