I'm new here and feeling alone

I have been going through a lot of stress lately, I am a freshman in college and a type one diabetic. I live with only my parents right now and do not have a super close relationship with them. I have no idea what I am doing. I go from being happy and feeling normal to so sad whenever the smallest thing in my life changes. My boyfriend told me the other day that I need help that he cannot give me which was very hard to hear. I feel so alone. I have gone through years of trying different medications and things never seems to stay working for me.

Feeling the same overwhelming with college although my situation is different I have a son and a husband and I’m a senior in college. What’s help me is just organization with life and setting small goals. Let me know if anything! I know the feeling of being feeling alone

Thank you so much! I agree, organization with my life gives me peace of mind but I have trouble keeping it up sometimes. It's hard to keep motivation when you feel so bad sometimes. It feels comforting to know that there is someone who understands

I understand, too! It's the end of the semester and I have so much work to do I can hardly breathe! We'll just have to take it a day at a time, do the best we can, and not slack off. In a few weeks it will all be over and THEN we can rest up and recover. For now, it's time to get to work. UGH! But we'll make it!

Thank you for the encouragement and positivity, you're right sometimes we have to fight through what we need to get done no matter how hard, then we can rest. We will make it.

My pep talk is as much to myself as it is to you - I'll be writing a paper all day!
