So basically I worked for crap wages for the entirety of the last year, saved every penny I could and am about to have to spend it all just to tread water and stay where I am (only without any sort of safety net).
So now I find myself seriously considering selling the vehicle, liquidating most of my other (very limited) assets, paying cab fare to the airport, buying a ticket to somewhere in europe and just trying my luck.
It's crazy, it's insane, but nothing I've tried HERE has worked out, and I'm almost ready to risk everything against the prospect of spending the rest of my life scrimping and worrying myself into the grave.
Can you move closer to a area where there is public transportation? That would probably be cheaper than moving to another country. Cars are a drain, and a luxury unless you have the means.
