So life is pretty shit right now. 3 weeks ago my girlfriend unexpectedly finished with me which has screwed me up a lot. Having not felt right for years I visited a doctor and it turns out I'm suffering from severe depression and social anxiety. Other than the iOS app work I do from time to time I've been unemployed for nearly a year now with no respite (I live in the middle of nowhere with my parents and there just aren't job opportunities for me here). I'm too over qualified to get a minimum wage job and I'm too under qualified in any specific area to go into a field. I only have a handful of really good friends but they all live at least an hours drive away and seeing as I don't have enough money for fuel it's difficult to meet up with any of them and because they work a lot they don't have the time to come see me. In addition the water pump has failed on my car and even though it's only a Â£25 fix, I can't afford to do it right now. My home life is atrocious. My dad is bi-polar and suffering from depression but being the hard northerner he is wouldn't ever admit it to himself or get anything done about it so I'm constantly at the end of a barrage of verbal abuse from him and I get no empathy or support with regards to my recent break up or condition. (general advice is, she wasn't right for you from the start cos she was always weird when she came here...little did he know that she was uncomfortable here because of him but I wouldn't tell him that). He doesn't work so he's here all the time. My mum works but she had a heart attack a few weeks ago, not too serious but it's made life even more difficult because I now get blasted with the "think of your poor mother working all hours of the week to keep the family going" speech from my dad, despite the fact that he doesn't work or do anything really. So the only real option I have in life at the moment is sit here in front of my computer, playing the odd game, listening to music and applying for hundreds of jobs every day (that's not an exaggeration). But now it's getting worse, because now I'm getting shit for sitting in my room all of the time, but there really is nothing else to do, if I go downstairs it's just arguments and boredom, why would I want to be out of my box? A lot of people have suggested joining a club...but gods honest truth, there is nothing around here and even if there were, even some of the smallest hobbies require money I don't have. The only good thing that's happening is that my app (see my sig) while once unofficial has been officially licensed and I now work directly with Steve Coogan and the Alan Partridge team which is great but it's not going to help in the short term as I can only rely on profits and they aren't going to rise until the film comes out on DVD on Dec 2nd. I've started counselling which helps deal with some of my own inner demons but as for my life, I'm getting worried. I just can't see a way out. I have no money, barely any friends, I hate where I live (but the council won't rehome me as they see me as adequately housed because we have a spare room) and it seems impossible to get a job. I've got plenty of free time on my hands so I could work on apps and stuff but for the past year I've tried many different things and they've all failed so it's hard to get the motivation to carry on and of course it means spending more time in my room which equals more abuse. So what would anyone recommend? I'm starting to get really down about it, there just doesn't seem to be any escape? I'm trying to stay positive and get some exercise etc but this whole scenario is just getting worse and nothing is happening fast enough to make me feel better. Winter is coming and that makes things around here even tougher. My girlfriend was what kept me going and she was amazing but I think my slipping into this situation is what made her lose attraction in me, which is understandable but makes me even more frustrated with myself.
