Thank you Sparrow....your words made me tear up. In a good way. It really sucks when literally no one else in your house understands depression....not even my boyfriend gets it. He just kinda sits there and listens to me, which I guess is all he can do. I'm just so stressed. I dropped a different class for this stupid anatomy class and it ended up costing me $1,175 (the balance thing) and the professor is still a big jerk. I didn't see that much money being charged at me, and I have enough saved up to pay a large majority of it off. If I do, though, then I'll literally be broke. My boyfriend can't get a job, because people won't hire right now, and my boss hasn't called me back about me wanting to go for a more permanent position again. It's like if everything could go wrong, it is. These fish are the only consistently good things I have in my life right now.....but it feels good to know that at least someone, somewhere, knows how I feel.
I'm glad my comment could in some way uplift you!
Having a boyfriend who will sit there and listen is actually a really good thing! I had a really bad patch last year, and my boyfriend is one of those "sweep it under the rug and it'll go away" people, so it took a lot of work and heartache to meet in the middle and get to where we are now, so I now am able to vent. So even if he just sits there and listens to you, he's still listening, he's still present, and there's someone who cares right there.
It might seem like all is lost, but it will pass. You'll get what you need to pay paid off, even if it takes a little while. Is there a payment plan offered for those sorts of things? If you can pay it in installments it should be more manageable, right?
Something that might help a little, is to think about what things you can actually control, and succeed in getting those things going right. The things you can't control will be left, but there will then be a smaller amount of things to worry about at that point.
I don't always remember to think in this way when poop hits the fan, but when I do, it saves my emotional butt. ^.^
