You didn't mention if you are being treated exclusively by psychotherapy, drugs, or a combination.
If it's psychotherapy, I have no suggestion other than changing the circumstances of your life, if this is a contributing factor.
If it's meds, are you able to afford them, and do you get some assistance in paying for them?
It appears that you can't afford psychotherapy, but if you can obtain meds, you might achieve relief if you can obtain the proper ones. Some pharmaceutical companies have compassionate assistance programs.
I say this facetiously, but it may be that society is leaving you no alternative but to engage in criminal acts in order to find relief. If your pdoc does not realize your economic situation and need for timely action, as opposed to extensive psychotherapy, possibly you should consult another one or a Social Worker, who could make some suggestions.
