Ah, the anonymity of the internet. The best place on earth to vent freely about the ills of life and look for sage advice.
If you had asked me two months ago how my life was going, I'd have been all smiles and sunshine. I was a 22 year old with an okay career, considering my lack of formal education, that I enjoyed. I was getting ready to marry the girl I loved, and hey, even my favorite baseball team was playing meaningful games for the first time in ages.
Then there's that phrase "life happens." Life happened in a hurry. And life really hit the fan. Two weeks before the set date to get married, the girl broke things off, and cut off any form of communications. Obviously devastated, things went a little bit south, and I ran into problems at work as well.
Needless to say, I am now a single 22 year old, who is jobless and struggling to pay his rent and bills off of savings. My family has offered lots of support, but I have never been the type to easily take help of any kind from others. But compartmentalizing things and trying to deal with it all on my own has lead me down a fairly self-destructive "self-medicating" type of a path. One that I know I don't want to be on either. But I'm stuck in a rut that I'm not entirely sure how to get out of and it's hard to find an answer to "when is it all going to stop?" I know for a fact that seeking some sort of help would be beneficial, but in losing the job I also lost my insurance, and money is obviously a bit tight for me.
I'm not entirely sure why I'm posting this here, other than the fact that it feels good to have an open forum to actually get this all out to without any real repercussions or worry from those that know me.
