    I am 25 Years Old, and I am still trying to pursue my Driver's Licence, AND get my Vehicle, but haven't been able to Drive for Over 9 Months because of Corona Virus - Covid 19, It's a Huge Problem to not have a DRIVER'S LICENCE, And I have a limited use of Public Transit Skills, because I never need to go anywhere, with the Modern Online Shopping and living directly near a Shopping Plaza/Grocery place I have the convenience, I wouldn't need to use Public Transit unless, I absolutely had to for Work, If I were Possibly Suitably Employed
    I am wrongly being treated for Schizophrenia, and I have contracted Pre Diabetes Type-2, I've also being perceived wrongly potentially by my GP to have Autism, when I 100% don't have It, I however have Pension, and have saved $16,000 + Thankfully, and I have been able to provide a Smile here and there and something for myself too, I have No Academic Ability to Pursue UNIVERSITY, and I am not Interested In any College Studies, or Mentally Attentively committed, I am not Interested In ANY Practical Hands on Trades/or Apprenticeships, so TAFE Is not for me, Nutrition seems alright, but I don't care entirely enough for It, You can't get Entry Jobs, without Experienced OR Trained Employable Skills, or Further Educational Qualifications, and None of them seem suitable for me, I can only think about RETAIL, and that's Low End Crap, with No Job Security, Work Life Balance/Flexibility and there Just CASUAL Positions, with No Needed Work Benefits, and not enough Abundance of Wealth for Modern Cost's of sustainable Melbourne Living In 2020 I also can't make Friends, because I don't want to Put myself out there, Who would want to be-friend a Turtle Grown Infant, who doesn't Drive at the moment, or have Employment/Sturdy Long Term Employment more so
    *I ACTUALLY, think about wanting a Escape from Reality, because without my Independence and suitable Employment, Even If I get my Independence later, without Skills/Experience or Further Study I can't even deem for a Entry Job, and ENTRY JOBS are depleting and plainly SHIT, and I want a Decent Life not Just Survival,
    The only Happiness, besides my Pension Savings Is that

    (My Brother has advanced a lot better than me)
