should i go?

So my drama this week has been to much i havent been able to deal with it i have an ongoing headache that wont go away and everything else i should be doing i am doing but i cant concentrate and randomly breakdown everytime.. i have lost out of so much sleep the last few days, even though my babys father is now getting what he deserves from his now ex fiancee its still not fair and none of that changes how i feel about the whole situation. I know someday hes going to run back to me and im not sure what im going to do when i get in that situation because i want to do both..

  • Go to work.

    That's what grown-ups do.

    I am sorry you don't feel good, sorry you are all over the place, but it doesn't matter.

    Go to work.

  • Sounds like you are going thru alot right now. Have you talked to your Dr. about possibility getting on an anti-depressant. I know times are tough, they will get better. You have to face life with the possibility of it being just you and your daughter. Forget about him, he made his choices.. sorry to say it was not you nor the baby... Thats your red flag. The dude is no good... no pick yourself up and get on with YOUR life. Don't let someone drag you down.. you are a strong woman. Show your daughter how to live life without a man and drama. Go get your dreams girl they are out there!!

  • You need to be responsible and go to work. There are always going to be things in life that bring you down and make you feel sad, but you need to pick up and carry on. Going to work may not be the fun thing to do, but it is the adult thing to do. You have a child now, and need to think of that.
    Sorry that you are going through so much, I am sure that everything will work out.

  • Have you taken time off before for sick days or whatever? If not, take the day off. Have a relaxing day. And tomorrow starts a new day! Everybody needs a day off once in awhile!

  • well.. if you have sick time and you won't get fired take a day just for yourself. Try meditation to getting out with friends. You are going through a lot right now, and sounds like depression. PLEASE talk to someone about it and don't let it eat up your life. I know what it can do to people.. ignore people that are negative like one of the above posts. They don't understand and their are people that wont. You can go to a doctor to be relieved from work due to depression. It's a disability. You can pm me any time you want to talk more about your options.

  • I know what you mean, but you are the mother. People do only want they want to do is a child, ( like your baby's father), you aren't one and you CAN"T be one.
