    I need advice. My gut is telling me to leave

    My fiancé and I have been together a bit over a year now. He has had a hard time keeping jobs. His last one fired him. The job he had before that he had issues with some of the employees and was bullied to the point where he was having anxiety attacks thinking about going to work. The job he just lost this month was due to lack of ability to work with others. I've just never seen someone have such a problem keeping a job. It makes me worry that this is going to be a common thing with him. He's applied at numerous places but keeps getting turned down. He's at the point where he wants to apply for unemployment and disability and not work. Is it rude of me wanting to leave? I have been living paycheck to paycheck myself but just got a better job in February and finally making better money and was getting ready to pay off some debts and start a savings account until he lost his job. Now I'm left paying for everything. I can't do it. I don't make enough for the both of us. I love him but all I see is this continuing problem in the future and that frightens me. I saw my mom go through it with my dad. Also, we have been having other problems as well. There has been moments of verbal abuse. He has a hard time controlling his temper when he is angry and tends to yell and scream and break things. It's reminding me of the way I was verbally abused in my last relationship. He has been working on this but I still fear for the next time he has one of his freak outs. I have fibromyalgia, anxiety, and depression and I've noticed my anxiety and pain has been getting worse. I'm getting. Real tired.

    Losing my mind

    I had an ankle fusion in 2001, an ankle replacement in 2010 and I’ve been doing amazing since. I’ve been having pain in this ankle lately and I noticed that my I was walking on the side of my foot. So I went and saw my ortho surgeon. X-ray shows that I had a complete and total ankle failure. My bones have been crushed and ground up, the bottom of the replacement is upside down and the fusion no longer exsists. Another replacement is off the table and there is not enough bone to do a fusion. The only thing that is left to do is to have my foot/ankle amputated. I’m beyond scared!!

    Crappy Day

    Today I am volunteering at the hospital Lehigh Valley Muhlenberg. I am emotionally and physically drained. I have bowling with friends tonight. I have like 0 energy right now and I just want to go home and sleep or something. I need help but I don't know how to ask for it because I am mentoring people. #Grief #depressed #anxious

    Not sure what to say

    So I see an intern therapist at the college I go to. At first it was ok but over the last couple of weeks I've slipped into a depression. He knows this. And he's told me that he's very concerned but I'm afraid to tell him my true thoughts and feelings because we only get so many sessions together. I want so badly to blurt out everything that I'm thinking and feeling but I'm not sure that it's a good idea. I only have like four more sessions with him and at this point I don't know what good it would do. Plus I don't want to bother him and put more on his shoulders. Should I tell him or should I leave it alone? #depressed #Anxiety

    😬Our ‘Public Persona’😬

    This is exactly what I, and countless others, do everyday - we put up a ‘public persona’ to hide what we’re truly going through. We pretend that we aren’t: in #AGONY or #depressed or #exhausted or #anxious . We pretend because we are #scared of how others would treat us if they really know what we were going through. The thing is though, by pretending we are something we’re not, we are giving ourselves more #Stress but also denying someone the opportunity to help us deal with the things that are really going on in our lives.
