I am 19 years old and feel very lost. My parents are pressuring me to choose a major in college but, I have no idea what I want to be. Everytime I think I've got my life in order something goes terribly wrong; Last week my brother suffered from a concussion and was hospitalized for two days and, I couldn't do anything to help him. I felt useless. I feel useless a lot of the time.
Also, I am in another unhappy relationship. However, this one is different in that, the boy in question hasn't done anything wrong to validate this unhappy feelings I've been having. The guy I've like throughout highschool has just come back into my life also but, I think I need to be alone to figure out why I'm always so unhappy in relationships. I basically cannot grasp anything in my life and, many days I feel like I am in a haze. I lose and gain weight all the time. I'm currently down to 98lbs. at 5' 2". I tell myself I'll quit smoking but, I feel more relaxed after that "one last" cigarette. It's never my last one though, I know my life isn't that bad but, I can't shake these feelings of confusion, pain, depression, longing that i've had for years. can anyone help me? Any answers would be a great start. Thank you.
