Your health should be your first priority. Few years ago, my mother got really sick and it would have been better that I withdrew from my classes to be better able to take care of my family. However, I was naive and  I wanted to stay in school so I would graduate in time and I put too much pressure on my self. As a result, I ended up getting Ds and Fs for the first time in my life and it ruined my GPA and had to do a  fifth year to graduate any ways.



Moral of the story is to know your limitations, and to put your health as the number 1 priority.  Only go back to school when you are ready. I applied to medical school for the first time last year, and I managed to get interviews despite having a GPA of 1.7 in one of my undergrad years.  Therefore, you are NOT destroying your chances.
