I have a problem. I can admit that. I spend way to much time in a world that exists beyond my own around me. On average I spend around 16 hours a day on some sort of device. Which is just about every waking moment.
No, I don't have a job. In California I want to go and get one, I have to get a damn degree which I am 20% of the way finished with (Of course, online)
Every time I get no calls back and waste all that time. I die inside a little and return to a virtual world. It's gotten to the point where I picture everyone around me in the real world like another mindless NPC. It feels like I am unnoticed.
It also doesn't help that I have a degenerative disease (Essentially I am lester) so manual labor is out of the question.
I don't know where to turn. I'm not suicidal, I'm just looking for a way out of this rut that's been going on for 2 years now.
I'm in a similar position to you, and might be able to give some advice.
The job market in the state is very competitive. Of course, this has to factor in what exact position you're trying to apply for, what degree you're trying to complete, etc. But it's really something that you have to have a job pre-planned before making the switch (this is true for all states/cities really, it's just more prevalent here.)
If it's convenient for your budget and degree, there are plenty of other options available to you than just CA. Raleigh and Charlotte, NC seem to be popular choices for a more inexpensive way to start a career, both with relatively low-income friendly housing. Upstate NY also comes to mind. The main issue is fitting it with your degree, and budget. Not everyone can move cross-country, or even cross-state, for a job opportunity - but it seems like that is your only option in this case.
Plus, the housing market in California, even apartments and renting - is prohibitively expensive. Unless you have a great opportunity and plan thought out, and you deal with roommates - you're not going to last long (which is why the above options are listed.) And I doubt there's a flourishing tech industry boom in Stockton or Fresno.
All in all; keep looking for job opportunities that suit your degree in areas that serve low-income housing and are convenient to relocate to. This may be difficult given your physical conditions, indeed, but it's somewhere to start.
