I Am Worried About My Future

    I'm going to be 16 in a month.

    That means that I'm going to be able to take my GED, and be able to stop school. At this point, my choices are my health dropping even further than what it is now and staying in school (and pleasing my mother), or suffering a lot of discomfort, being unsure about the future...

    Absolutely Terrified

    I just started college and although I'm super excited and enjoying it, I am terrified of what's to come. Will I do good in school? Am I going to make friends? Will I achieve my goals? So many things are so uncertain and it worries me because I want to find at least some happiness...

    If you chase a dream your entire life,

    and it never works out, did you waste your life?

    Lately, I don't know why

    but I haven't been able to will myself into keeping up with homeworks from school. I just haven't been doing anything at all, and it's hard to wake up the next day feeling very disappointed about the lack of effort I've been putting and feeling a little scared to get into class...

    Stressed Out

    I moved to NY almost two months ago. I managed to get a full-time job but it is only temporary, as the the person I am covering for is on maternity leave. I am staying in the apartment of my dad's old co-worker and I am desperate to leave. There is no privacy and I'm forced to...

    So, because of luck or some mysterious

    something no one will know, everything is starting to go right for me. I switched jobs this past week to an even better one. I am happy I got the job. I have been able to fill my car up without assistance from another person's wallet. I finally have more than 2 dollars in my...

    benevolently inclined adult stranger that I am indeed college bound, that I want to major in fine art, that I just don't know anything more definite? I can't figure out exactly what I want to do. How will i make money and support myself and be a good American citizen? Why, at...

    I lost my job back in August,

    due to my illness, I am a type 1 diabetic with retinopathy in both eyes. I've been living off my savings account, but I'm at the point where that's all gone. I've been looking for work with flexibility so I can make it to my pt and doctors appointments, but I'm not having any...

    I've been struggling with bad feelings lately.

    Sometimes, I'm okay, but sometimes the stress of life and school just weighs me down. I keep thinking about suicide--not really considering it, not really wanting to end my life, just thinking about it. I can't imagine taking my own life--but lately, a lot of the time, I can't...

    Will I Turn Out Like My Parents?

    It's sounds so ungrateful from my part to share this story after all what my parents have endured raising my brothers and I. However, none of us is perfect. That is why I'm very concerned about commiting the mistakes they did in our upbringing, in their marriage, and in their...

    I am a wee bit worried about me

    and my life. I wonder constantly if I am doing the right thing and analyse whether I am ever going to get to where I want to be. I went out with my friends last night and they are extremely positive and even though life has thrown them some curve balls they seem to be on a...

    This is going to be kind of long.

    So I have been in an LPN program for almost a year now and I am to graduate on July 25 of this year. To get your license you have to send in an application to the state for review in order to take the NCLEX to receive a license. However, I have a background, to make it short it...
