Life is way too complicated/expensive

First you have to pay for food and living expenses which isn’t cheap then there’s medical coverage and medical bills which are outrageous in the US then there’s college which is equally ridiculous how do people afford crap especially us schizophrenics alot of us don’t even work

No those are not. Yes they’re expensive. Do you pay rent, food, electricity etc to your parents?

My parents get all my disability money and give me some only when necessary. I had gambling and shopping addiction due to Abilify in the past so that helps me control my expenses too.

I pay 33% of my income to rent, I have subsidized electricity (I pay a portion), water/garbage is included in the rent, my sister pays for my phone and refuses to take any money for it (she’s paying it forward my brother paid for her cellphone for 5 years) I pay probably $300 in food and household and the rest of my money goes to debt. There’s a lot of wiggle room. But you’re right, it’s complicated when you’re trying to get everything covered. Thank God for Medicare/medi-cal

Most of Europe has some form of free healthcare. Hate to break it to you but America is really far behind in terms of living standards.
