i'm not like the kids my age, so why me?

i work full time, and have since i was 16, i attend college full time. i have never done drugs, and i do not drink. i don't have any children, which is surprising these days. i'm TWENTY.

my mom became ill with an unknown disease when i turned twelve. it ruined everything. she was a brilliant hard working woman, until one day, blood surrounded her heart and filled her lungs. as soon as she was released from the hospital (four months later) she was in a car accident. a group of teenage girls werent paying attention & smacked into her from behind, damaging her spine. after her long term disibility ran out, she was determined unable to work and titled handicapped. i got my first job at 16, and signed a paper allowing myself to work 30 hours as long as my grades stayed passing. in the meantime, my mother was (and still is) battling the govt for social security.

i just got a new job so i'd make more money. things were finally looking up. i was able to afford the bills and my moms medicine, and still have money to save. well, the transmission goes out in my car. a 1400 dollar fix. it's still in the shop, because i cannot afford the payment just yet. next, my school denies me financial aid, meaning i cannot go back to school unless i pay 5,000 on my own. and finally, tonight, my one source of transportation, my moms car completely dies, and of course, it cant be a simple fix.

i am now forced to take a bus at 5am every day and get to work an hour before i start. i realize it could be worse, but really. i deserve a break. its been so hard. when i compare my life to friends my age, its insane. their parents bought their cars or can pay for repairs. their parents pay for their school.

why do bad things happen to good people?

To make them even better people.

The kids like all the other kids you know grow up to be spoiled and empty. You know the value of everything you are doing. Keep at it.

Exactly what I wanted to say. :)

Keep working hard. Even if life continues to be hard and unfair, at least you can make a good case for yourself when you go to the Pearly Gates.

God bless your for being a good daughter. For being a hard worker and responsible. For being selfless and determined. Don't give up. The best is yet to come. Cling to hope and don't give up on yourself.

man i can totally relate to you! gowd why cant people like you get a break! its so true only bad shit happens to good people...? makes ya wonder why we try at all to be good productive members of society when all we get is shit on for it?

At least you can take care of your slef. Keep God first in your life, because he has blessed you with common sense. He will do more for you if you will let him. Have faith, when things are bad and when things are good. Keep doing what you can, once you have done all you can do, give your problem to God and let him do the rest. He will, it might not be they way you want he will work it out for you. Keep the faith
