Ok, I have to put in my 2 cents. . . .

The OP does have a mental illness, and from seeing his posts over the years, it is quite possible that he has a hard time living on his own.

I'm not sure why his insurance company doesn't cover his meds, but he is taking quite a few.

There have been times in the recent past where he has been in fear of losing his job, in addition to other things.

I do think he should be giving himself more of an economic cushion, especially with how many times this has stressed him out.

I don't understand how putting $1500 a month into an HSA and not having enough to pay his medical bills, though.

But, by definition, mental illness means sometimes not making rational (or normal) decisions.

Meds help, but they aren't miraculous.
