The title says it all, and you also might get some answers.

I graduate college in a few months. I started looking at jobs to see what’s available and even entry-level positions require experience and passed tests. I ultimately will have to pass around at least 5 tests after I graduate, 3-6 hours long each, some reaching $1000 per test.

I am going to have to work a minimum wage type of job to afford to pay for these tests before I can even be considered for the roles, but I probably still won’t get them because I have no experience.

Once you get the job you will probably make, minimum wage.

Finding a better paying job with stable hours. I can't just quit, although the lack of hours recently would make a good reason to quit and collect Employment Insurance. But that only lasts for a few months and then what if I can't get a job before it runs out? This job is likely killing me. I suspect I'm getting an ulcer or hernia. Idk but I don't think it's healthy to have a constant feeling of tightness in your stomach from stress and clenching your teeth all day.

Sending you good luck. Your in the worst place and it is hurting your body. Try looking for a new job even if it’s in small ways, like working on your resume for 1/2 hour at a time. Then look at job postings. Eventually you’ll be ready to move elsewhere and hopefully have a better job and life. Small steps will help mentally until your ready to move. Again, best of luck and start moving.

My mental health is in pretty bad shape and I'm not entirely sure what to do. I'm getting by for now, but I'm not sure how much longer I can.

I'm sending you my warmest hugs! If you like to be hugged, that is... If you have a close family member, relative, friend, person, speak to them about this. Speak to a professional if possible. Reach out for help, don't be alone with this. It is good that you wrote about this here - it shows you recognise your feelings and are able to put it in words, and want to improve your well-being, even if you're not sure what to do. You don't need to have a whole plan to "fix" everything at once; talk to someone you feel most comfortable talking to, and continue from there, little by little. There are people rooting for you and wishing you to feel better, and wanting to be able to help you (I, for one), don't you forget that. I don't know details about your situation so I can only hope this message is universal enough to apply... You are welcome to tell more here or pm.

I’ve been separated from my husband for close to a year & I’m not sure we’re ever going to work things out. There’s a big chance that I’ll be starting over at an age when I should be preparing for retirement.

My parents got divorced about 10 months ago. My mental health was already not at its best, and this really took a toll on me. I had always been struggling with my sexuality (that sounds wrong, I know), because coming from a Catholic family, I was taught being gay was a sin. I would have panic attacks constantly, worrying about the feelings I had for a girl friend of mine, thinking I would go to hell. Anyway, after the divorce, I got some time to think more about my sexuality and discovered that the broad term “queer” honestly described me best. After a lot of stress, I came out to my friends and parents. My friends were amazingly supportive, but my parents were a bit taken aback. We haven’t talked about it since. I’m going to be a freshman next year, and I just became friends with this group recently. I have this constant fear that no one likes me, so high school is really stressing me out. Plus, moving between houses, trying to find a NEW house to live in (our rental just got sold), and this feeling that I’m never going to find a girlfriend at my Catholic school has really put a lot on my shoulders. I’m sorry for unloading that on you all. I just needed someone to tell, I guess. HAPPY PRIDE EVEN THOUGH THAT WAS 2 MONTHS AGO! :)

Theres this thing called qchatspace. It's a program for queer teens to just, talk. Its anonymous, safe, and warm, and welcome. I feel like I belong there. If you're struggling with your sexuality or just wanna hear the experiences of your fellow LGBTQ folk, you should try it out!

I found a lump in my breast a few days ago. Trying not to assume the worst but still pretty scared. I’ve made all the necessary appointments so, one step at a time.

I'm almost certain I have ADHD and bipolar 2 disorder which makes it difficult to focus on school. I want to ask someone to take me to a mental health doctor to get a test but I'm pretty sure they're gonna say "you're fine, you have straight A." Okay but my eyebags are the size of North Dakota because I spend late into the night forcing myself to understand the work and during a depressive episode (from bp2) it can be even more difficult. I'm burnt out. And to add to all that, I'm a people-pleaser with gender dysphoria and homophobes on my tail. Sorry if I should like a pick me or if I sound like I'm fishing for attention but all of this is true. I'm also "the therapist" of the friend group so everyone feeds me their problems, problems that I sont know how to deal with and I feel obliged to fix them. I'm also trying to stop a friend from wanting to die. Yall pray for my mental health😒
