I am terrified that I may have to go on disability to deal with my almost debilitating anxiety issues and my self-medicating with alcohol. This is not how I ever imagined my life would end up. If this happened I would feel like a failure, like a loser, like a total collapse of everything I ever wanted for myself...but it's getting so hard to deal with life, with having tons of ambition / education / experience yet not getting any sort of properly-paying work save for data entry, with the cost of this city, with being stuck here because it costs money to move. I can barely sleep through the nights and I can barely get through my work days because I'm so unchallenged and bored and end up with obsessive thought. How on earth can anyone exist on disability in this city? And no, I have nowhere I can go and nobody I can stay with.
