My girlfriend and I are in a very complicated situation. Due to financial difficulties we were forced to move in with my parents two months ago. Previously we were going to college and living in Chicago together, however we were unable to graduate before we ended up running out of the sufficient funds to continue living there. Neither of us wanted to leave Chicago but we unfortunately had no choice. Our lifestyle living with my parents quickly became monotonous and depressing. My girlfriend does not feel comfortable with my parents and tries her best to avoid them. This means that we'd leave the house about an hour before they arrived home from work and not return until 1 or 2 in the morning. We have been unable to find a job in the last 2 months and have had to rely solely on my parents. Neither of us, especially her, seem to want to better ourselves and get back on our feet financially. Her parents recently moved into a new apartment without an extra bedroom for us to stay, thus further making her feel more depressed and helpless. My parents are being very supportive of me and always doing their best to be there for both of us. However, my girlfriend still resents them for bringing us back here. We have been thinking about going back to school, but my girlfriend is very unconfident about her appearance even though she is beautiful. She lacks any kind of self esteem whatsoever. I think she is bipolar, as her mood never seems to be stable. She had been on my case lately about how she has no faith in me, even though I have been trying my hardest to get a job. She has been really hard on me and very mean and verbally abusive at points, but at other times she apologizes for her actions. In fact, just last night she told me she was sorry for the way she'd been acting lately. Then, all of the sudden, today she seemed even worse than usual, as she screamed at me over something really mundane. Not long afterwards, I caught her trying to take a large amount of sleeping pills and luckily I was able to slap her back so that she spit them out before swallowing. I really want to get her help, and I want to see her happy more than anything. I am not sure if we can make it through this relationship together, and I think we both have some things to sort out on our own. Neither of us have health insurance, but I would love for her to be able to see a doctor and perhaps go on medication. I genuinely love this woman but this whole situation is very difficult for both of us and I am searching for any answers I can get right now. Thank you for reading and replying.
