the government is so corrupt. I can't afford to live and can't afford to die. hell, I won't even be able to buy food for weeks. and I've been out of work for mental health issues and Im just really struggling. I feel so alone. why can't I just get over my issues and keep a job?

      Have you considered applying for disability? I just was told my Illness is on the list of disabilities now and so I applied for it. Also try unemployment for the time being, as it takes 3-5 months (in my state at least) to get any news on if you get approved for disability or not.

        @LexaPeach91 the only thing with unemployment you have to be continously job hunting and submitting proof you're actually looking for a job

      I get that so much, I've been in the same boat for years. I'm always switching jobs because either my mental or physical health gets in the way, and even when I have a job I can't work more than 20 hrs a week and have to spend all of time outside of work recovering from work. The only way I've been able to afford food is by having SNAP benefits, that has been a huge help. I applied for disability over a year ago and they still haven't finished the review. It can definitely get frustrating and feel like you're not good enough, why can everyone else manage but I can't... it's hard and I'm so sorry you have to experience this as well. I can't do much to help you, but just know that you are not alone and somehow it will get better. And don't be afraid of trying to get ebt or disability, it never hurts to apply ❤️

        @Amadeus17 last time I tried to apply for snap I was told I didn't qualify because my bf can afford groceries even though I cannot

          @livvie361 oh yeah the rules can get a little finicky with who counts as someone in your household so if there's someone who does and they make more then it'll mess it up, I'm so sorry that's so frustrating

      I feel you. I have 4 more months to go to hear if I get disability or ssi. I'm in too much pain daily to work a regular job and too much mental stuff going on to really hold a desk Job if it involves talking to people

          @fairychild9807 of course! I've been wanting to go on disability for years but I've been too proud in the past
