People have told me to work backwards to get a better job, think of an end goal and see what you need to start on the path, but it’s almost impossible to think of the future when you struggle to get by day to day. I've been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, major depressive disorder, and PTSD. I already take medication, and it does help, but I still feel down most days.
You are under treatment for anxiety and depression, yet you still feel stuck in a dead-end cycle.
If you do not notice improvement, speak to your therapist and let him know how you feel. You may need different medications or another therapeutic approach.
Once you are out of depression and feel more ambitious, you will be able to decide about your current job.
Exploring your feelings towards your career choice can further help. It is never too late to switch and learn something that interests you. Take a course and get further education in the field you really enjoy.
