Hi I'm Dave I'm visually impaired and I'm not dealing with it very well

 I was in a car crash when I was 17  I damage my  optic nerves  I have limited vision  and I can't make eye contact  so  it's hard to meet  women  which is a big problem for me   Because would love to be in a relationship. I would also like to work  but I can't because of my  eye sight. Seeing other people   Get new jobs start families   Do sports and activities they enjoy  makes me so angry and upset because  I see no hope of having a  relationship  and I can't do things I want to do because of my eyesight. I also have   Hardly any of my money left from my  compensation  because I overspent   And was ripped off a few times  so don't know how I'm going to live when this money goes  I see no future  and really don't know what to do .
