Stephanie, have you been tested to see what your learning difficulties are?
I understand, that you left school because you weren't getting the support you needed. All people learn in different ways, some can read the text and learn, others need to see how to do something and others need to actually do, feel the lesson.
I would recommend that you speak to the schools Guidance Counselor and the school Psychologist and have them run some tests to see how you learn best. They can help develop a plan to help you get that degree, you seem to want. Don't give up on yourself and don't let others give up on you. You are entitled to a free Education until you turn 21. Good luck. Show them all you can achieve your goals and get a job that will support you in the future.

well go to a community college they have allll the help you want. they have tutoring sessions, you can pick your teachers that way you pick the ones that seems to be more patient, and plus at the beginning you take a placement exam. and the results are the levels you are in math, reading, english and such that way you know what classes that are available depending on your understanding of the subject.

get your ged if you want to. as far as jobs go they all suck but fast food will pay the bills. factory will pay more than bills. i am a little slower also. I work in fast food when I work. I have my ged. find out what you like and then see about finding something that goes along with your interests. just because you go to school and graduate does not mean you will get a good job. research all the fields and find out what field is strong in the economy and try for one of those.

I would suggest just getting a decent job in retail. Honestly, people will spend 4 years in college for a Retail Management degree, when you could get to the exact same position in 4 years of working in retail (AND not get any student loans!) if you're a hard worker.

Go back to school and finish your education first. Only then will you get a good job. It's hard to get a decent job if you don't have a full education, because you won't know how to do some of the stuff that you need to do while you work. I suggest going to a retail store or even McDonald's until you're back in school and are back on your feet. Good luck :)

Yeah go back to school. If you want to be a nurse then go for it. It sounds like nursing is what you want to do. Stop thinking a bout it and do it!

Restaurants are about it with your education. I suggest you get back in school and finish up. You don't have any options without a diploma. Also talk to the counselors at the school they can help you find a career that will fit you.

Go back and get your GED. Many people have no idea what they will do at age 18. Studies have shown that the people who make the least money are those that didn't finish high school. The only thing that increases this is if you have kids as a single woman. Typically they are some of the poorest people. Your future does not have to be bleak. Be determined to nice forward and get your GED. The rest is up to you.

Go back to the high school and ask for help. They get paid to educate people and you have a right to get educated. It might also help, as Lynne said, to see a guidance counselor, maybe at a local community college so you don't have to attend classes with younger students. Do whatever it takes to get your GED and job training or you'll be stuck in really lousy, very hard physical labor-type jobs with no benefits. Your body will get old faster and you won't be able to support your family like you want to. Don't give up at this point or you'll find it even more difficult to make a good life for yourself.

Do something you like to do, as long as its legal. Pay attention to detail, find an interest. There's "book learning" and ""people or world learning"' we all need both, maybe you can be a little better in one that you like is easy for you. Obviously, look and ask around, be friendly, but not overly so.

Explore yourself. What You like or dislike...and then take a congruent decision to excel in whatever you choose. The best part about your situation is you have got free time to think about your likes and dislikes. Many people end up in a career they hate. It is better to earn less than to sacrifice job satisfaction. Career counseling and psychological test for your so called "slow" abilities will be helpful.
Best Of Luck.
God bless.

I will never ever recommend you to do a job. Studies should be your first priority. In this contemporary world, where every competition is fierce you have to be well educated in order to get the job.

DON'T try to quit studies.
