This may be cruel, even though I don't intend it to be, but to be honest I wouldn't want a lawyer who was always absent and had issues because of their illness. If you can't make it to class, what makes you think you will make it to work? As an attorney, it seems that your clients would suffer.
You need to get your illnesses in check before you do anything else. make sure you get them under control, then figure out what your next step is going to be. Schools are accommodating, but people and clients may interpret this as an excuse for not getting things done on time and the way your boss/ clients want, so its imperitive that you can manage your illnesses, and not use them as a crutch. Whatever you do, make sure to do some due diligence and check out not only the cost, but what the prospects are afterwords. Make sure whatever you do next is something you will be happy doing for a long time.
People on this site generally are helpful and accomodating, as long as you are respectful. While their opinions and suggestions may not be what you want to hear, they generally are only trying to help. You may need to sift through the snarkiness a bit, but there is a lot of good advice to be found here.
