What’s my solution?
I’m a woman in my thirties living with my parents. The reason why is because I was told due to my disability that I’m only capable of working part time. I’m also on the pension and I pay rent. Do my own chores, cook meals. Buy my own clothes. I’m grateful that I have somewhere comfortable to live with people I love, but I wish I could move out and live on my own. The only problem is money. Should I try to save up for a townhouse or just accept that Sydney’s too expensive to buy a house on a beer budget? My parents own their own house.

Stay where you are and put the beer money into a home addition that gives you more privacy. As long as the arrangement is good with your parents. Check with your parents for ideas. For example, simply having a bedroom addition with a small kitchenette, bath and another exterior door for you to use (say on the back of the house) will give you and them a lot of privacy.

You've been told you're only capable of working part time. You inhabit your body - is this true, or would more hours be possible?

Would your parents be willing to consider allowing you to have the basement with your own door - a basement apartment? Or a property with an annex to the house? It's a lot to ask but unless you earn a professional salary, it is unlikely that you can afford anything on your own with just a part-time salary. Many people have a hard time making ends meet on a full time salary.
