Everything keeps going wrong

The past couple of weeks have been awful and everything just keeps getting worse. It all started last Sunday when my boyfriend broke up with me. I'm doing a lot better now and I'm starting to come to terms with it. I still have so many questions I want answered, but I've accepted that I most likely won't get any answers from him anytime soon. I've started having thoughts of dating and getting in a relationship again, but I know it would just be a rebound and it probably wouldn't work out anyway. I just keep telling myself that it's best for me to stay single and work on treating my anxiety/depression before I try for another relationship. Then on Thursday, I got in a minor car accident. Physically I'm fine, but I'm so stressed out about trying to deal with insurance to get my car fixed. I've been playing phone-tag with them, trying to set up a time for someone to come out to look at the damage and determine what's going to happen. At this point, I have no idea if insurance will pay, if I will have to pay, or if they will total my car since there is at least $600 worth of damage and my car is very old (1999 Chevrolet Lumina). I know I will feel so much better once I know what's going to happen, but until then, I can't stop thinking about all of the possibilities. Today, I found out that I failed exams for two classes. I've never failed an exam in my life, so it's difficult news to take. The only good thing that happened was that I finally got my first tattoo that I had been wanting to get for two years.

I just have to get through the next couple of weeks until my doctor's appointment to talk about getting started on medication. I can get through this. I need to get through this.

Yes, you will get through this, you know you will. There's not a lot of options. You sound pretty good, too. It's funny, I am in a very similar position with my older car and parking lot accident, too. I don't know if it's going to get fixed or totaled. We could compare notes in a few more days! Mine's a 2000 Camry and the damage is $300+.

It's great that you have an appointment already because now I don't have to recommend you get one. You also very much need a therapist or counselor. This will be a great help for you with all of your life's activities and twist and turns. You have a lot to process and handle right now. I'm very sorry about your 2 tests. I would be quite surprised myself. What do you suppose happened? I hope you get to drop a grade in those classes.

Why not go online to Psychology Today and look at therapists' photos and specialties and philosophies, education, sliding scale fees, insurance accepted, and so on? See if anyone looks right for you? This group of listings is by no means complete for your area so you could also make inquiries of your doctor offices or your friends' doctors and just ask around in general for counselors that people have liked. I wish you the very best in all that you do.
