Wake up whenever, sleep whenever.
Rely on a disability pension of $26,000 australian dollars a year.
Medication paid for by government, dr bills payed for, dental all paid for.
I wake up turn the computer on and sit, my groceries are delivered to my door my shopping and bills all done online.
It’s been like this for years now, I’m 23 years old soon and all I do is sit at the computer and watch streams, movies, documentaries or play video games, browse the internet etc. all the while waiting for a government funded house 1 bedroom which takes many years to get. So I share house and pay about $150 a week rent and electricity phone+internet around $100 a f/night and buy my own groceries while living with my mother. I have 2 bedrooms 1 bedroom is set up like a living room couch, tv, computer etc. another room just has a bed in it and clothes. I have my own toilet, fridge and bathroom. I live literally over 1hour walk away from a train station in an area of about 5,000 people. I can catch a train for hours to a city and that is it. So I sit, connected to the internet tvs blaring, laptops running and a desktop and many monitors with web browsers and video games/movies running. Wake up whenever, sleep whenever, do whatever only leave house for daily exercise in a small country area and have everything delivered to my door including medication. No friends, no contact with anyone or anything completely cut off. And MAN I tell you. Through the emotions you go through it is hard some times mentally but I’ve never felt so bloody good in my life. I call my self the OZZIE HIKIKOMORI Bound to a house a recluse and mentally ill but not your typical hikikomori of definition.
And when I am finally housed, I will continue to live this life until I die.
Disability pension $500 a week.
In some way mental illness for me took a lot but gave a lot as well.
Anyone else out there like me?
