I totally hear where you are coming from, same place I was 7 years ago. Living in the basement apartment that i couldn't completely stand up in because the ceiling was so low. You'll make it, it just takes time. In a few years, you'll look back on this as a character building experience. Until then, it just sucks. Hope you find something good soon brother.
Are there any particular languages or framework that you would suggest?
my part time degree has been going on and off for 6 years now. retaining knowledge is difficult like this especially since my jobs have been non-tech.
considering taking a few refresher courses to brush up and possibly land a job in the field
