I need to find a different job and my experience varies

I am currently right now a mail sorter at a company not too far from where I live(20 or 30 minute drive depending on traffic and road conditions). I have worked since June and I am entering my third month, but I have felt nothing, but absolute contempt for the job despite it being my only source of income throughout the summer. I can't stand being around a lot of buzzing machinery and sounds as it can worsen my mania as the excess sounds that aren't pleasant to me can be quite a nuisance or cause brief manic episodes; on a side-note, this is exactly why I won't ever live in the city no matter how many "opportunities" are present.

Previously, after the summer of 2020: I worked a string of 3 jobs. From assembler, warehouse worker, to general laborer at some plastic molding company. All three I have unpleasant encounters and left due to me feeling tired, a massive panic flash episode, or not being able to keep up with the pace of the environment. I have been told by my parents that I do not like to work, pay attention, but I feel like something else is at play. I have trouble expressing myself in both verbal, written, and even abstract forms such as thinking. Every thing in my head feels bizarrely alien, but psychiatrists and therapists tell me I have a number of disorders from autism and bipolar.


Going back to what I was saying. I want to look for a job that is more suited towards my personality type and constantly fluctuating states of being. I can go from being absolutely full of energy to feeling like I want to kill myself because I feel burnt out, experiencing the regret of countless decisions I have done in different states of being, to depression. My only reason why I don't want to quit this despicable piece of shit ass job is because it's my only source of income as my continual energy and focus varies hour after hour. I am extremely uncertain and don't know where to look on places like Indeed and other job boards.
