I just can't seem to get ahead. I struggle every day to function with my depression and PTSD. I'm trying and my finances are like another weight on my back. Every week I struggle to put money together for gas and food. Both my checking accounts are in overdraft right now. I get paid and all my money goes to bills. I moved away from my family and that was the best thing I could do because they're abusive and it wasn't safe. But i'm killing myself working 60 hours/ week and all the overtime goes to taxes. My rent just increased by $60. My car insurance is nearly $400. And I don't have any savings. Everytime I try to save I end up having to use the money because something comes up. The past couple of paychecks I snuck away $20 that was all i could do. I have to pay out of pocket for therapy and psychiatry, and I don't qualify for any government assistance, not even health insurance. I work full time as a consultant no benefits. I like my job, but i hate my life. I'm struggling just to stay afloat. I feel like at any point in time I can be homeless. I'm just living in survival mode.

Been there, done that and got the physical scars as evidence. Road to hell is paved with good intensions. That which does not kill you will make you stronger.

Have you tried making a list? A list of your problems, a list of your possible solutions, then a pros and cons list to determine which is the best. Have you ever tried relocating someplace with cheaper living or getting a roommate?
