    Does your state force graduation at 18 ?,some US states allow you to leave at 16 or 17, if not you're stuck .
    From what I remember I didn't feel free when I left, you are still subject to a police state at the time there were huge dole (unemployment benefit the irony)queues it's still unkind humans inaway it's more of a shock as you are forced to encounter them after days of avoiding them ,college tutors aren't in a parent role any longer so even less aid\help

    We all do things/ fail to do things which annoy us - go easy on yourself.
    Einstein was told he was thick headed(not those words) look at him.
    Richard Branson is dyslexic, he didn't let that stand in his way.
    Look at the great Stephen Hawking and all of his difficulties, and how successful he was.
