I can't leave my job so soon, because it wouldn't look good

I can't leave my job so soon, because it wouldn't look good on me. Its not a bad job in general, its a good job, but I am very isolated every day and it worsens my depression/anxiety/c-ptsd. In actuality I would like to not work at all for a while to try to recover because I am in desperate need of a break to even start to get better, but I need the money to afford my apartment/living expenses. Its so hard. I just want time to recover so soo bad. I am so desperate.

@Sosh2018 must be. When i worked full time (even two jobs to boot) and had trauma to deal with as well, it was difficult time. I just want to say it's amazing you are holding yourself together now and I think it helps to think "day to day" (one day at a time, in other words) and also at the end of the day, breaks at job, and in the morning before going to the job, doing something that relaxes you and makes you feel better/helps you get distracted a bit. I'd seen someone coloring/some crocheting/ reading/watching something funny, whatever it is. sometimes even eating junk food and watching a scary movie before going out helped me. my point is "day to day care"... and don't worry about future in advance, even though your thought just go that way, and don't decide that it's going to be bad. and maybe instead focus on the day...little things. ex) buying a flower for saturday morning/wedesday morning just to feel better/make the day special. it would be ideal if you can just set a certain amount of money as a goal and months to work and then rest for a bit. but you can't, right?

@strawblue Plus I have too much to pay and not enough money except for basic necessities and a few other little things, but that's about it.
