Advice Needed.

Okay, I have no idea if anyone will see this, but I need to blurt it out anyway and hopefully get some feedback/opinions/solicited life advice.

I'm 28 years old, Engaged, I have a 4 year old who started kindergarten 3 days a week this year, I work casually at my local supermarket, anywhere between 5 - 30 hours a week as well as doing part-time university (2 subjects a semester). I'm always broke because my fiance also works casually and hasn't had any shifts for two months (to be honest and a little dramatic, we're tettering on bankruptcy). My life is busy. Crazy busy. BUT I'm really struggling with my mental health. I have been for about 10 years and I finally got up the courage to see a doctor, she was great, gave me a script and a number for a psychologist. And that's where my courage ended. I am struggling at the moment to do more than go to work. My house is a farce, I haven't been to uni in about 5 weeks and I kind of hate everything right now. I have so much to do that I look at it all, panic and then just DO NOTHING. NOTHING AT ALL.


So, what I'd really like advice on is: Should I leave university? I've already taken a 12 months leave absence and I've been back for 12 months and I'm not coping at all. I love uni and the subject but I can't work, study AND be an effective parent to my 4 year old. My fiance is trying incredibly hard to get a job but is dealing with own demons as well.

Any advice/personal anecdotes would be much appreciated.
