Why should I bother to work?

I don't sleep anymore because I am so worried about my job. It is stressful and I have so many problems trying to live a normal life with this job. I can't figure out why I need to work anymore. I have so many friends on disability and other government aid that I'm thinking it would be easier to throw in the towel and join them. I don't have an education and can't afford to get one so I am stuck in lower paying jobs. My friend gets more money to spend on groceries from food stamps than I get with a full time job. I would have to quit my job to qualify for help but in all reality, we would have more money to spend. Does this make any sense to anyone for me to continue working?
