Im almost 20 and trying to get into a nursing program. It requires an entrance exam consiting of math,vocabulary,reading comprehenaion,and grammar. I suck at math and grammar. To pass i have to get a 70 on the math and a 70% on the overall reading part. Just studying has me ready to break down. Ive only been graduated a year too! Im a single.mom,a horrible one at that. Im a shitty housekeeper and significant other. I have a shit job and barely make ends meet. I hate my life yet everyday i fake a smile,fake happiness. I act like I actually like myself.

Well, you might want to clean up your act before considering entering something you suck at....
Maybe find something else you are good at, or take math classes.
Improve yourself, maybe, ya know, be a better mother, read "cleaning for losers", that might help.
Yeah, we can't all be awesome right?!

You have so many things in your mind/heart you can resolve before you can be effective at a job like nursing. The things they test you in are used for medical documents every day and for math that is knowing dosages and such for whomever you are caring for.

You know, life is tough.
You need to stop the pity party and find something you are good at.
Its hard, and i get it, you feel like shit but you need to tell yourself that this is not the woman you want to be.
Tell me,seriously, tell me what you like doing? What are you good at?

I'm not trying to be a Debbie Downer, but if the required math classes aren't your strong suit then nursing really isn't for you. Reading comprehension is also an important part of the job. 
What are your strengths? Find a career that's more in line with them.
