I've been IN and OUT of ruts from time to time. Don't want to give you any FALSE HOPE, but just hang in there. Hopefully, things will work out for you.

My life isn't exactly any better right now, but I'm working on it.

Kryptonoff, I don't know where you live, but there's always public transportation, or a ride with a friend. Or even a bicycle. Heck, that's cool now, with the price of gas. I live 30 miles from my job and the gas is killing me. Wish I could bike it in myself.
My son was in the same boat (no license, no car, no money), he had a job five miles from his apartment, but he'd either hitchhike, or late at night take a cab home.
There's always a way. Keep your spirits up and things will work out. Trust me.

(Ooops, I said "trust me." Never ever trust someone who says "trust me.";) )

Hey I know people who worked with me at walmart for 5 years that either took the bus or a cab to work every day, 5 days a week for 5 years. Sounded crazy to me, but you do what you have to do I guess. I guess if you want to work badly enough you'll find a way to get there. I even knew people who ride a bike for miles each day rain or shine. I even heard of a guy who left for work at 5 am every morning and walked the 12 miles one way to get there by 7 am.

Any firends that can get you a job where they work, and can drive you to and from? Ride to work with your Dad or Mom? There's many ways.

This sounds like a line from an Alice Cooper song called Lost in America. "Can't go to school cuz I don't have a gun..." Raxl will appreciate the reference. :D

Just hang in there Krypt. Be calm and don't blow your cool no matter how much you feel you have to. All the suggestions thus far have been quite good thus far and I have very little to add to it. The bike idea is the best one especially if you have a walkman. Listen to tunes while you bike your way to and fro. Music you like goes a long way in helping you to take your mind off problems and you'll be getting exercise and those endomorphins pumping and soon thereafter your woes will seem a lot lighter. It will probably take some time, but eventually it will happen for you. Good luck. :)
