Hi, I just finished my first year at an engineering college and miserably failed the last semester. For info, I'm an international student and it was my first time in US. Everything going on in the country and back in my home country was really hard to swallow and I had personal hardships as well with relationships and stuffs. I know I should have reached out for help but I just couldn't do anything but be stuck in the bed for the last whole month. That screwed up my grades and I just flew back to my home for rest.
The problem is that I've been trying not to remind myself of school stuff and checked my emails way too late. The college sent me an email "advising" a required leave of absence. I have no idea what to do with it. What impacts will it have on my future? What if they refuse my return? I also have no idea how to tell this to my parents who are literally giving up their future life plans for my education. What should I do? I really need help, I'm scared.
