I really hate to come to a message board for support but my life is horrible right now. I am 19 and I am 10 weeks pregnant. I am from Baltimore, Maryland originally but my boyfriend lives in Harrington, Delaware. We met and fell in love. My dad wanted no part of him. He hated and despised him. Before I left, I had a steady, decent job, I was financially stable. I had my own car and paid my own bills, even though I lived at home. One thing led to another and I let my heart win. I quit my job, dropped everything and moved to Delaware to be with my love. I've applied at many jobs and none has called me back and I'm more than qualified. I have no money. I almost lost my car. My cell phone has already been shut off. Now my license might be suspended because I got a speeding ticket and I was gonna go to court but I never received a court notice. My mom just called me today and told me I got a failure to appear notice. Lovely. I just wanna pay the ticket but I don't have the money. My boyfriend wants to help me but he only has a part time job at a fast food place. All this, and I'm pregnant. Some life, huh? Not to mention I haven't had one prenatal visit to the doctor's yet because I have no money or insurance. I've been taking prenatal vitamins like I should but I really wanna get to the doctor's soon. I finally got my birth certificate from my mom so I can apply for medical assistance Monday. I'm sorry if you read all this and your thinking, well your stupid and you got what was coming to you. I'm really down about my life and I need help.

I'm sorry you're having such a tough time. The job market is pretty bad right now (as it seems you've realized) - some tips from job placement companies are: dress for an interview even if you don't have one, deliver the application/resume
