I'm assuming that both of you are trying to do long distance? How long have you been together? Is it worth it to sacrifice so much to move all the way to their country? Have you talked to them about your concerns? I just need more information about this.

Sleep might really help. Take a deep breath. This seems rather complicated and you need a clear mind to make a decision. Try not to rush that decision. Mental health is a journey, and you have to decide which steps are comfortable for you.

Judging by your spelling and grammar, I would definitely agree that you should go to college. This could have done with a rigorous proof read...

College is not for everyone.

Dont go if you dont want to, and do not feel pressured to.

If you want to try a less stressful college, maybe go to a trade school?

Exactly! College could really help you with your dyslexia. I also have dyslexia and dyslexia and now I study law at university and have 4 A levels. So, college could really help you with these things. I wasn’t meaning it as a criticism. If you just sit there and think “oh I have dyslexia so I can’t go to college or be academic” then that’s really sad. Don’t let it hold you back. Often, the people I know with dyslexia are actually some of the most hard working, resilient people.

Good for u
I mean if they will dump you for watching out for your mental health, are they really worth it? Do you want to be with someone who doesn't understand your medical condition? There are plenty of fish in the sea.

The age old lie "everyone should go to college" or "you cant be successful without going to college" is not true.
Its just not for everyone. It is high in stress, and its just a waste of time for a lot of people. Why go if your mental health will suffer or if your not going to learn anything? Its just a waste of money for some people.

Edit- Of course if you want to go you totally should, but dont pressure other people into going because its not helpful for a lo of people.

Honestly they don't sound supportive or understanding.

Don't go and live there with them. This is the level of support and commitment they're showing right now. Moving to a different country is incredibly stressful and you'd need someone you can rely on. They are not it.

Imagine this. You move over there and 2 weeks later they end the relationship and never speak to you again. How would you cope mentally? How would you cope financially? How would you cope socially? - you'd be in a new country without knowing anyone. Where would you live?

I'd say to leave them. They don't respect you. They're trying to push you into life changing decisions that you don't seem like you feel ready for. One of the hardest things in life is that you can't make someone love you. But if they don't love you and accept you for who you are and where you're at in your life. They don't deserve you and they're not the right person for you.

You are not a slug of a human. You seem incredibly loving, even to your own detriment. Being loving is actually the sign of a good human. I will say you seem to be a little impulsive. But no-ones perfect. And in some scenarios being able to make fast decisions is helpful.

I hope you make the decision that's right for you and that you find someone who helps you know you're amazing and perfect just the way you are.
