I am completely and utterly incapable of being an adult:
I need to come up with $1700 somehow otherwise I will get evicted from my apartment. My hours at work got cut to 32 a week, which is good for my health, but very bad for my money. I seem to be constitutionally incapable of saving money, I don’t even realize what I spend it on, and then it’s all gone and I’m left wondering what happened.
My job is too stressful. That is, it’s not a particularly stressful job, but I am having more and more trouble handling it. That needs to change otherwise bad things will happen to me, but I don’t know how to find a lower stress job than this and still make enough money to live.
On the other hand, I appear on the surface capable of holding a job, so I don’t have a compelling argument for SSI benefits.
I can’t handle all of this in a rational, sane way. What I would really like to do is lock myself in my apartment until either someone comes to save me or I starve myself to death, whichever comes first. It seems a much better solution to me than figuring out how to confront any of these problems. Maybe I am simply incapable of confronting them.
I want somebody to hold me and let me cry and take care of me and make everything all better.
