My only advice is think outside the box, live communally if you can, times like these that creative solutions are needed.
That being said, there are options.
With out knowing your skill set its hard to advise, I myself have gone through some hard times since the collapse, and i am thriving now.
I am not mentioning this to brag, just offer solutions.
I had a stroke at 25, my wife and I lost the largest source of income with that, making me disabled. We also where upside down on a 600k house.
Lost the house, Lost the income, at the same time my father managed to lose all his holdings as well, multiple houses and his retirement all gone
trying to save it all.
It took time, and it took some drastic measures, that Included moving 1200 miles from home to achieve a more attainable lifestyle.
Going back to being disabled, in a state that has a full percentage point above Florida's I have found several jobs that could sustain us if the need
arose. From putting my own craigslist adds up for Cell phone hacking and computer repair (no formal training mind you just the willingness to learn it
on my own)
To just recently getting a position at Dell... Heres the key for me.
I was down right mystified at how many job offers I was able to attain in a short time, not interviews, job offers for employment.
All I did was apply to everything that I even remotely had skills for, and when I went on those interview I never once showed a defeatist attitude. I
know what I am capable of, and I know what an asset I can be to a company, having even that little bet of confidence wins out more often than you
I guess what I am trying to say, as a Disabled individual who lost everything in the collapse, is don't give up, YOU CAN DO IT.
This is still america, and the opportunities are there if you are willing to do what is necessary, it may not be nice, it may not be comfortable, it
may require stepping well outside your comfort zone, But you can do it.
I promise you if you don't give up and keep trying you can find success.
