    Are you living in the UK? Can you move back with your parents?

    How come you can't hold down a job? If it's due to illness then claim ESA, if not then I don't know what to tell you... you need a job to pay rent. Can you claim housing benefit?
    Yeah. And nah. It's not really an illness. It's just depression/anxiety/abitofvaliumabuse/stuff. I can't claim any benefits because they'd just expect me to get therapy and then go back into the legal field or whatever.

    Guys don't really make as much money as girls do (on cams) so not sure if I'll be able to afford the house + debts with that. : /
    You can. You just have to be the gayest guy on the planet.

    Or become a rent boy, is that legal?
    100% legal but isn't 'sugardaddy' a better option...

    Go on a gay webcam site. I'm sure they make a **** ton.
    Maybe I should. The annoying thing is though that people record you and then sell vids to porn sites.

    You can claim ESA for depression/anxiety if you are not well enough to work. Why don't you want to try therapy or whatever? If I were you I'd put in a claim for ESA and housing benefit and then work on getting better. Otherwise you are a bit stuck aren't you cos I don't see any other options out there for you.

    Probably, I'm not really experienced in that area.

    Wear a mask and cover up your background so nobody can link it back to you?

    I just don't feel like talking about my 'problems' to be honest. Plus I'm sure I'd only get enough money for like 1 bed flat and that would be a huge problem because I've pets, including a 130lb dog. They need space and I am never going to rehome them.

    Not sure if anyone would pay for private shows w/t face but who knows, might be worth a try.

    Use Opinion Outpost if you have tons of time on your hands. Each survey equates to points that redeemed.

    You might need to sign on, despite reservations because otherwise if you don't get money coming in then you won't be able to live. I don't know if you've done a degree but some websites do look for graduate writers who can work from home. What would you ideally like to do?

    I do have more than a degree. In fact, I'm an ex trainee solicitor (which makes me look even more pathetic lol). I really don't know. My brain isn't working as it should half of the time. I keep getting this weird brain fog feeling/empty mind and I can't concentrate on anything, not even on simple tasks. Idk who would even hire me.

    I'm not really considering porn movies industry. I was thinking of either getting a sugar daddy or maybe just cams.

    Can males get sugar daddies ? I suspect it's fairly rare. Cams seem like a good idea if you're confident enough. It that doesn't work out I am here
