i have many difficult and stressing things going on in my life. i became a mom when i was 16, and remained a single mom until 8 months ago when i met my boyfriend. i started college so i could get a good career and we could move in together when i graduated. recently my college has dropped me, and all my hours are gone, i had two months left. im always stressed because im a young mom. and now i've lost the boyfriend. we fight a lot and he says he will not get back with me unless i get counceling. i don't know what i am supposed to do?

Hi Brooke,
Wow! You've sure got a lot going on!

Not to side with your boyfriend or anything, but have you considered seeing a counselor? Sometimes that can be a good place to talk to someone who won't get upset or angry or anything. Counselors will just listen to you & help you figure out what's bothering you & how to make things better.

If you are interested in finding a counselor in your area, you might try calling the Nine Line (1-800-999-9999). They specialize in helping teens & young adults with a lot going on in their lives to find help in their local area. Often they can even help people find counselors who will see youth for free or super cheap (based on income). Generally it's quite a bit easier to find counselors who will see patients for super cheap (it is called a "sliding scale fee structure"), so if you can scrape together a few bucks often you can be seen a lot sooner. But if you don't have any money at all & don't have insurance, know that there are options out there they just take a little more time & effort to find.

take care,

Hi Brooke,

Welcome to HealingWell. I am so happy that you have joined us.

I agree with the above statements. Getting counseling is a good thing. It has really helped me. It is good to have an objective ear and shoulder. So I would say give it a try.

I think that you can save your credits with college. Maybe you can start again where you left off. I hope so. You deserve a break in all of this.

I hope that you have a good day. Keep on posting and let us know how you are doing.

Take care my friend.

Hugs, Karen
