Struggling to make ends meet

Nursing S, Boston

I am currently a full time nursing student taking double the amount of credits for a full time student would take. Three years ago I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, if you don't know what that is, it is inflammation and ulcers in the colon causing extreme pain and bleeding. While in the process of being diagnosed I had to withdraw from school twice. Now that it is under control I am almost finished with my nursing program. I am paying almost $10,000 for school, which I have under control. However, due to my extremely demanding schedule I do not have time to work. When I am not in class I am studying. My boyfriend is working so hard to provide for both of us but it is hard for him to save money whole doing so. As for me, I have spent the last of my saved money on rent, bills and groceries this month. I am working hard to succeed in a career where I can help others, I would greatly appreciate your help. And I will pay it forward when I am stable.
