I am a 31-year-old female and my life is ridiculously complicated. I don't know how much more I can stand. I have had a lot of random illnesses my whole life, and many seem to be undiagnosable. I am completely broke and I am losing my home and my car. I have no family (everyone I'm related to is either dead, crazy, evil, or lives on another continent). I'm also very introverted and don't have many close friends. I have no income, either, and I no longer have the energy to be resourceful. I have been trying to find a job for six years and until recently I haven't given up. I've had a few low-wage temp jobs here and there, but few steady things. I had one permanent job where I was a victim of workplace bullying (I walked away after six months of humiliation), and then another where I got fired just a few hours after I expressed discontent about the way I was openly mocked when I tried to get a promotion. Other than that, it's just been awful low-wage temp jobs and I can't do it anymore. I've even walked off my last two temp jobs because I get overwhelmed with customer-service crappiness. I have a master's degree and should be able to get a better job! The past few months have been particularly brutal. Two of my friends have died recently, I lived a month without electricity, I was assaulted during the commission of a car repossession (I got the car back but am about to lose it again), I keep getting horrible respiratory infections, and I just keep getting into BAD situations that just don't happen to normal people. I've stopped looking for jobs because I just can't take it anymore. I've applied for well over 600 jobs and I've been rejected well over 600 times. You name it, I've probably applied for it and been rejected. I've read many books on interview technique, I've been to resume workshops, I do not have a criminal record. I wear suits, I'm charming...but I always hear "I'm sorry, but we found someone with more experience." I'm just really tired of fighting. I have nothing left and I'm genuinely sick and can't fight this anymore. I can't afford my medications (anti-depressants, thyroid drugs, metformin, asthma inhaler, and prescription iron) so I go without. My medical bills are crazy. I had to have surgery 3 years ago and I'm still paying for it. I can't pay my student loans, either. When I was 10 years old my hair stopped growing (not completely) and I'm about 75% bald. I wear wigs and I'm VERY self-conscious about it and having a roommate is one of the most terrifying things I can imagine. I was bullied and physically beaten all through junior high because I was fat and was going bald. My parents wouldn't even take me to a doctor citing that it was "just cosmetic" and "not a real problem." I've NEVER recovered. In fact the workplace bullying situation I mentioned earlier was when I worked at a hair replacement salon. I definitely think that my baldness was a factor in the bullying. I might be able to stay with a friend for a while, but she won't let me take my cat, and my cat is the only thing I have left in this world. I know that sounds silly, but I've had her 14 years, she's old, and she's really all I've got. My family abused and abandoned me, but this cat has been there. I won't even have a car to live in. I don't know why things are like this for me, but now I feel like I couldn't even handle a job if I got one. I have many regrets. Anyway, I honestly feel like I'm going to die. Not a day goes by that I don't think of shaving my head and robbing a bank so that I can get arrested and not worry about my wig being discovered. I want to be healthy and I want to work, but it seems like the world just doesn't want me. Sorry this has been such a long introduction, but I thought I'd get all that out in one swoop. There's more, of course, but I don't want to be too obnoxious. I look forward to getting to know you guys.
