Need Advice

Pit, I'm completely at a loss and I need some advice and/or a really good laugh.

Here's the situation - a few weeks back, I got caught drinking on campus with some friends. I was damn near passed out, so campus police sent me to a local hospital for observation. Per university policy, I have pay a $250 fine and I have to meet with a behavioral intervention team (BIT) and let them figure out if I need a substance abuse class (which will come out to another $165 on top of the fine).

I have been proactive working with the university and with medical staff here to get my shit together. I don't drink regularly and I try to avoid it when possible. I get that I messed up and I want to take responsibility for it and own my mistake. But every time I think that they're done ****ing me over, I get something new to suck on.

I had a meeting with student conduct which I was never told about, and when I missed it and called to reschedule, I was unable to get in touch with anyone there. I left a message, which they refuse to acknowledge, and are instead convinced that I intentionally skipped out on that meeting. I got two phone calls in class today, but because I was in class, I didn't answer. I found out from the voicemails that my registration for spring semester has been put on hold until I meet with them (which is a slight problem because my registration date starts on the same day as my meeting with this BIT thing. I sent them an email explaining the situation and got a response that boiled down to "eat a dick, kid".

So I turn to my family for support. My mom just up and does a 180 on me and wants to side with the school on everything, even though they've clearly ignored every attempt by me to get in touch with them and figure out when I can meet without missing class. My dad is nowhere to be seen. My friends don't want to hear it for whatever reason. I literally don't have any idea what the **** to do anymore. I'm feeling way too close to suicidal depression right now, but if I get in touch with my doctor, they're just gonna assume that I need their intervention team when that's what's causing all this stress in the first place.

Make me smile or give me hope. I really ****ing need it.

No but seriously you need to meet with someone face to face as soon as possible. Keep calling them until you can meet with whoever it is you need to meet with to get your registration back on track. If these BIT shitheads are being unhelpful find someone else that can help you out. The key is to have an in-person meaning so you can explain whatever's going on.

Oh, and also don't kill yourself cause that would be shitty.

That's the thing. I want to meet them face-to-face, but no one's taking my calls and my emails are getting nowhere. If they'll take the time to meet me, I'll work with them 100%. I made a mess of myself and I want to be an adult and take responsibility, but I can't do that if they won't communicate back to me.

Stroll into the main office confidently and ask to see someone or make an appointment.

Just stop with the phonecalls, go and see someone face to face so they can't accuse you of bullshitting.
Universities don't intentionally try to screw people but they can be very oblivious to a lot of students problems and so they don't always keep your feelings in mind.
Anyways, go and contact the BIT and ask to reschedule to an earlier date. Point out that the dates conflict and show them evidence like emails or letters showing both dates. They can't tell you no on that basis.
Hope this helps bro.

And here I thought this was like half the point of campus life. I thought it was common to have a pub on campus Didn't know you could get "caught" drinking...

Irrelevant, but so are the other videos in this thread. Good for some giggles though.
