Single Status Update
Just learned that the original medical records I would need to enlist in the military -something that has taken me years due to multiple health reasons - have been destroyed by accident. I can no longer enlist, because no reprints were made. There goes me career options...2 years down the toilet.
I'm 23 and still live at home. I don't have a single penny to my name or a job. I am $15,000 in debt, and my only bank account is in the negative. I can't drive my own car because my license has been suspended due to me being unable to pay for repairs. I'm miserable all day, and the only enjoyment I get out of the week is D&D on Sundays...in another state.
I have no career options due to not graduating college, so the only solution is to work at a menial job for whatever hours I can find. Except nobody is hiring in my town.
My family is disappointed in my, even though they don't say it. I can tell. I seal myself away from everyone else in an attempt to hide, and my pathological lying isn't helping.
I don't know what to do anymore. I am at the end of my rope.

I work with mentally handicapped adults
Aged care is another growth industry, if you can stand spending your day surrounded by people older than myself.
@Mr. Freeze - if the military will accept re-constructed records and a statutory declaration as alternative documentation, I'd get started on that. Hiding in your room won't solve anything.
@Creaphis: I grew up living with mentally handicapped adults. I am currently applying for a job in Cambridge caring for one autistic adult. I prefer caring for autistics over other special needs people, because I think they are the most interesting and have the least ego. It's only 10 hours a week, but includes free rent (it's a really large house with 10 other part time caretakers of this one single dude). I hope I get the job because the house is in a sick neighborhood. I'll then be able to fill my time with either more school in an awesome academic setting (Harvard extension is just down the street from the house) or some other job while I figure out my next step.
@Mr. Freeze: I'd advise against being idle, even if it doesn't feel like you can do anything about the situation. The more active you are--the more stuff you try, the better you'll feel and more doors will open up.
