I'm a 27-year-old still living at home with my parents. We live outside a dingy little country town 20 miles removed from the nearest city. My parents have never commented on my still living with them but have come to rely on me to take over many of their responsibilties - looking after their pets, cleaning the house, etc. I desperately want to get out on my own, but I have no money, minimal college education, and no prospects of getting a job (I was downsized from a part-time job two years ago and haven't been accepted by any paying employer since). I have spoken to my parents about this and have asked them for help, but responses have been apathetic and unhelpful at best. I am not afraid of work and am currently working a volunteer job just to get out of the house during the day. I'm weeks away from getting my actual driver's license. Again, I have no money at all and no reliable friends or family members. I know my situation is pathetic, but can anybody give me advice on how to improve my situation and, above all, get me the heck out of this place?
