I saved my work as a JPEG and then when I go to open it all my layers had combine into one and now i can't edit it because everything got put together. Is there anyway to open it as a JPEG, with all my layers seperate?

No, that's not possible.  JPG is a flat file.  It does not support layers. To maintain layers, save images as native PSD (Photoshop) or TIF files.  Always keep your native files in case you ever need to edit them.  Make copies in JPG for use in projects requiring JPG.  Ditto for PNG.

When saving a file, there's a Layers checkbox in the options. You'll notice for some formats (such as JPEG) that layers cannot be checked because they do not support layers (and it even puts a yellow alert icon as a warning). Only a few formats actually support layers. It's best to save your work file as a Photoshop document (PSD).

When you open any kind of file (JPEG or other) and start working, creating layers, etc. you can then do a File > Save As and make it a Photoshop file (PSD). In your case if you have a flat JPEG, saving it as a Photoshop file will not magically bring back the layers you once had (they are not in the JPEG to begin with), but if you remake your layers you could at least keep them moving forward.

Sure but it won't magically create layers for you.  That data was lost when you saved as JPG.
