Hi, My name is Karen. I am 26 years old. Just ended my two year relationship. We were fighting a lot. I mean it was a daily basis that we were at each other's throat. Financial problems were the fire starter. We lived in the home he co-owned with his mother which means his 4 other siblings were there too. I pretty much lived in a room. They were such slobs leaving food and clothes all over their house waiting for their mom to come home and clean up. I was not happy living their. When I left I realized I was completely dependent on him. Being a stay at home mom was great but not financially. I had no money to my name. Going back to my parents was the last thing I wanted but I had no other choice. I have not finished school. I have no career to go to. No money and to make things better I got into a car accident. I don't know yet if thecar is a total loss but if it is my ex will probably have to finish making payments on a car that we cant drive. I feel awful because I still love him and Dont want him to pay. I was planning to go back to school and get my paralegal degree but I just feel like giving up. Everything in my life is going bad. My only happiness is my son. Im just scared I will fail in school as well.
