Yup. Definitely trapped. I can't work a full time job cause if I do I'll be making "too much" money and my parents will have to pay more rent which comes out of my pocket as well. In fact they could lose housing all together which would make things even worse. If I claim I moved out they could possibly force us into a 1 bedroom so I can't do that. Either way I'm losing.
And foodstamps would be taken away as well. More money out of my pocket. I can't believe I'm completely trapped here. If I have to spend all of my earnings keeping my family afloat then I can't save it to get things started for me.
You know what I had to pass up this week cause I'm afraid for my family? 1800 a month job with Bonuses, Benefits, and a fantastic schedule of monday through friday 11AM to 8PM. That's like the god damn holy grail of jobs for someone in my situation. And my parents feel terrible about this cause they don't want their son to have to buy their groceries and pay their rent...
Guess I can't blame them. I'd do the same in this situation. Kinda funny I don't even have kids but I got the whole parent guilt thing going. Really I am just having one effed up week. And this is a situation that won't simply go away and there's no real way to solve this issue.
I got talents I can't use. Anything payed to me via check will eventually find it's way to the state and they'll punish my family extensively. I really wish I could work under the radar. Get paid cash for my work. But the world doesn't work that way unless you want to get arrested for tax evasion. Plus if you have no proof of income good luck doing anything substantial with your earnings. IRS keeps a close eye on large purchases. And I can't move under those circumstances because anything rent controlled demands proof of income.
Moving back to the original point. Screw this crap. I wish this would just end. But if I die my parents are gonna get hit with a shitstorm anyway so I threw that out of my mind rather quickly.
So, now I can't even die. My state won't let me die cause they're holding my damn family hostage and as soon as I go the state promises me their lives will get much much harder.
Thinking about applying for benefits at a later date. My brother in law gets disability for PTSD. Now then, If only I could have a psychotic episode or yet another mental breakdown.
WISH ME LUCK.
