Hello, I am sorry that your symptoms are so significant that you cannot hold a job, I can understand how distressing this can be for you. If this is the case than you qualify for disability and I would recommend that you contact an attorney that specializes in disability cases to help you file the proper paperwork. A mental illness or illnesses that directly prevent an individual from maintaining employment is cause for said individual to apply for disability benefits.
