I know exactly how you feel. But to be real honest with you dropping out of school & quitting your job isnt worth it. The longest youve when without peeling was a week, but in reality it takes months if not years to heal it naturally. My advise would be keep doing what your doing, because if you lose those things you wont have anything to think about EXCEPT FOR EC.
But if its getting to the point where your having anxiety attacks, do what you have to do.
