I'm so tired of feeling sick all the time and not being able to live like i used to and because of my illnesses I'm lucky if I'm able to work 9 hours a week and it's not enough to live off of so i can't afford to move out of an abusive house even though I'm 19 and im just so tired of it all. i can't afford to pay to keep going to the Dr and to see specialists either and neither can my parents. i feel so stuck and helpless i just don't know what to do anymore

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)

    Have you tried applying for disability money from the government? I don’t think EDS and POTS are on the official list, but not being able to work enough would probably be a valid reason.

    Hi there I’m in the same situation as well. I had to move back home due to my illnesses and working part time now. I’m 23 and it sucks. I have tried to work on building some side income from remote work and side hustles that can be done from home and I’m hoping my health gets better so that I can move back out again. ❤️ I second trying to look into disability as well and maybe you can get some money from that, or trying to find something that can be done from home while managing illness. That’s the hardest part I think is when u can’t work then it’s hard to afford the dr appointments that are much needed! I feel that
