Rent Is Almost Due...

Ever since I left high school I've been looking for a job. That was when I was 16. I'm 18 now, turning 19 in May and have only had one job in this 2 year bracket. I was an apprentice mechanic, not the greatest of jobs but it was better than nothing. The work was tiring, the people there were back stabbers, and in my opinion, was not worth the 7 bucks i got per hour. I only just managed to move out of home and have been renting a room, this apprenticeship gave me the money i needed to move out of home,  which was genuinely driving me insane, i'd been to see psychs. because of my parents but have never really felt independent enough to move out of home. Now that I'm jobless, I crunched the numbers and worked out that I have enough rent for a month with 5 bucks to spend on food. I have applied to numerous places, to which I have received no replies. I don't really know what to do if I can't find a job in the next month...

Thank you for your support and suggestions lovelyday, I hadn't thought of a few of those...

please apply for food stamps, go to all the churches and ask for help......food, a place to live,a job,go to the salvation army and see what help they have, go to the fast food restaurants you can work to asst manager to manager etc or just stay on the counter as a cook etc even go to the restaurants and be a bus boy don't give up think of a vocational school down the line in time........you will find something keep on keeping on look for good things in life

Thank you alaaraulo. I am actually formally unable to live at home, the emotional and physical abuse is impossible to withstand and is recognized by the psychiatrists I continually see. I would like to develop my skills but I can't afford the education... I'm just hoping there is some light at the end of this tunnel.
