I never leave the apartment anymore, because the outdoors have become a frightening dystopia. My childhood quarters have been utterly ruined with tasteless buildings and soulless (and dangerous) people. It just so happens to be a location where the houses cost a lot of money (in spite of all the destruction), and so I'm seriously considering moving somewhere far away where there's few or no people, where the houses are much cheaper to buy. Why pay a massive premium just to keep living where I feel horribly depressed every time I look outside? (Not to mention I'm not rich by any means.)
But the problem is that not only do I not have a car or a driver's license, but I'm never going to be able to get either. While not diagnosed, I just feel that I'm not fit to drive a big motor vehicle on the roads myself. Especially not as I self-medicate daily, which is necessary due to horrible physical pain. I did some practice-driving many years ago on a parking lot, but just the thought of going out into traffic frightens me. I know myself and I'm sure that I would "black out" or forget some traffic rule or something like that. I realize that a lot of very "stupid" people do manage to get a driver's license, but I also know that a lot of people end up in accidents. I'd preferably not even ride a car if I can help it, especially with all the camera and mics and stuff they pack them full of these days.
Since I doubt that any food/grocery delivery service delivers outside of major cities, this poses a massive problem for me. Of course, it would be technically possible to pay for a taxi to drive to my place, pick me up, drive to some store, wait for me as I shop, and then drive me home, but that would likely cost a fortune in the long run. Possibly even so much as to offset the "gains" of living so remotely and thus cheaply.
Assuming that there's no breakthrough with an actual self-driving, affordable car being announced tomorrow which doesn't even have a wheel and doesn't require any human to do anything but input the destination on a big interactive map in the front, and that no food delivery service starts offering remote drone deliveries or packages dropped from a fly-by airplane with little parachutes attached to them, how would somebody solve this?
I have no friends or family members who could help me.
I fear that the answer will be: "You're out of luck. All the people in your situation drive a car." I'm always like that; falling between two "categories" of people, not fitting into either one. But maybe there's something I haven't thought of?
I want to stress that I'm not the "Rambo" type who runs around in the woods with a knife and stabs bears for dinner. Not only do I not own any weapon, but I could never shoot "Bambi" even if I did have one, and a license, and bullets, and training, and... everything is just such a bureaucratic mess. I would likely not survive at all if forced to "become a hunter". Perhaps I could grow some tomatoes and whatnot, but I strongly doubt that I could produce enough to actually survive from that alone. I frankly also have so little energy left that the thought of "farming" just makes me exhausted. (But I also recognize that it's probably very rewarding and "recreative".)
I hate loud neighbours and people shouting and screaming outside my window, but total silence in a remote wooden cabin also seems likely to drive me insane eventually. All of this would've been so much easier if I had a partner with whom to "escape from society"; now that I'm on my own, I can't take advantage of a theoretical partner's ability to drive a car, combined money, varied interests complementing each other, etc. (I wasted a huge amount of my life trying to find a girl, and at this point, it's a closed chapter.)
What to do in this kind of situation? I've spent so many sleepless nights going over this in my head, again and again, but I just can't see any kind of solution which doesn't just consist of me stuffed into some other corner nearby from here, with loud people all around and no ability to take walks and spend time outdoors on my own plot away from cameras and thieves. I fully recognize that there probably is no solution.
