No offense intended here, but it's hard to be sympathetic without knowing your situation.
I know people are saying it's hard to get a job, but it's really not. If you have a decent record and can pee clean you should be able to get a job
in a day. Might not be CEO of Nike or whatever, but I know for a fact you can get a minimum wage job at a fast food join, gas station, car wash, call
center, etc, easily and quickly, unless you live way out in the woods or something.
My advice? Same as others here, get off the computer, get outside, actually VISIT potential employers instead of making a few phone calls and calling
it a day. I'm not saying this is what you're doing, only that I have witnessed a multitude of people who claim to be "trying hard" but never leave
their basements when job searching.
If you really can't get a job for some crazy reason, there are a lot of ways to supplement your income on your own. Figure them out.
Anyway, it sounds like your fate is already sealed in your own mind - so what you predict might be exactly what happens without a change in
perspective. Get your chin up, suck in your gut and push out your chest, go kill a few job interviews and see if something works out for you.
Good luck, hope you avoid homelessness.
