I just got accepted for benefits

I can not believe I have been awarded benefits. I can agree with this as my teenage son just became violent with me and I threw a skillet at him. Hit the dog. I can not understand the teenage years right now. My son is hungry after going to school I am to buzzed to care right now. I am fucked up. I need to cook but can not. I just feel so lost. What is wrong with me. I drink alcohol which is not good especially after knowing I have been accepted in the USA for Social Security benefits. Need to slow down and apoligise to my son. Thank goodness I did not hurt the dog. Or my son just a little crazy right now

i'd rather be considered well, having an illness isn't a good thing, theres stigma but what choice do i have i'm not seriously fit for a modern job and given the choice between women avoiding me and food and a roof over my head, i've made my decision
