I'm a 20 year old student. I have never gotten along with my parents for many, many complicated reasons. My boyfriend who was the only person I trusted (over all of my family) dumped me. The only person I had to go to was my grandfather, who I trusted, but he died this past June.
I have so many problems, not only with people and school, but also with my health. I was diagnosed with a disease early this year and found out that there is no cure. I recently found out that I have another condition that my doctor says he has seen only 4 times in the past 5 years. I have so many things piling over me at this time in my life and have no one to turn to.
What should I do?

Maybe it's time to make amends with your 'rents. I mean, what do you have to lose? It might lift your spirits--not to mention their own--in the end. As for the debilitating disease you mentioned, all I can say is I'm saddened to hear this, but in the end, what is time but a measure of "now" vs. "later"? In reality, we should all live for the now... those who live for tomorrow are just presuming it'll always "be there"; and of course... that's a mighty big presumption. I say this might be the best thing that ever happened to you. No rules apply! You're off the hook... go and live the next breath like it's a freaking miracle. The rest of us should only be so lucky. Value has an interesting way of making things taste, look and hear sweeter... and when there's suddenly a value placed on life... well then, dang, you make the best of it if you can. I hope you take this to heart and not worry about "the end" but rather, "the now".

You know counseling is often real good, in some ways its a paid friendship, its all about you for you, and considering all that your dealing with, it might be good to talk, and get a real live hug after. In fact I think you could use a hug right now.((((()))))
If your in school, try student services, I am sure they have something affordable. You can always post here, Cici, is good with the disease thing, she has some uncurable stuff as well, and heck most of us have had our backs against the wall at one time or another. Your never really alone.

d4, I think you've gotten some mighty fine suggestions in the above 2 posts.
An occasional rainfall is bad enough but when you get hit with a hurricane of problems all at once, it's overwhelming. My heart goes out to you on all of it. I hope you'll take a good look at what Kafka wrote about the here and now. And Molly's suggestion about a counselor is one that I would suggest also. Sometimes if you take everything out of the top of your head and set it out on the table and look it over with a trained therapist, you can see things clearer and throw away the stuff that is just clutter, ya know?

Is a reconciliation with parents possible? Would they want to know about the health issues? Support is very important with any crisis.

Keep us posted,and here's another one, you can never have too many hugs.

d4....

When life gives you lemons...make lemonade

If you have a rare disease see about governmental help

talk to your parents and see where they stand now

seek counseling

You can survive...even if today it doesn't seem like it.

Good luck
