Advice for people at the end of their rope?

What can those of us who can barely keep slaving away do? In my particular example and to keep it short, I have multiple serious debilitating illnesses. All made worse by working.

Being a slave sucks. But being a sick slave is a nightmare.

I'm in my early 30s and since entering the 30s I've become increasingly aware of my mortality. When not working (weekends), I feel OK – I'd like to keep going, Come the workweek, and I want everything to end. The pain is too much.

A few ideas I've gathered so far:

-Get a job with a 4 days a week instead of 5 d/week

-Work part-time and massively decrease living expenses – of which the biggest one is housing. (E.g., live with multiple roommates, live in a van)

-Go the other away and instead of decreasing work, increase it. Somehow be able to work 2+ jobs with the goal of retiring ASAP.
