IMO you have to take some time off.
How can you not afford to take a week off when you are losing every session anyway?
Should have done this before 7 months, obv. Also the below advice earlier.

The unsaid part:

Even assuming you are handling this better than almost anyone in the world, you are still playing worse than you think in spots because of the downswing. The person staking you should be watching/coaching/etc and then telling you problems that they see.
You don't necessarily need to be working for someone else forever, but you need an objective viewpoint from someone who cares enough about the outcome they aren't just agreeing it's all luck.

I’ve taken multiple one and 2 week breaks…like probably 6-8 in this span of time.

I don’t know how I’d get staking as an unknown live player… I also never considered the idea of it.

move down in stakes until you feel comfortable with your game again to move back up (or if you cant move any further down, just stay at 1/2 and when you do shot take again, try and do some game selecting)

Not coming from someone with a proven record of winning live for years, but nevertheless what I see and experience in live play, if you simply AVOID marginal spots and difficult decisions to begin with and don't gamble it off to chase loses, you cannot constantly lose. You are surely doing more things wrong than you think. Or your opponents are just good.

It might cap your potential winnings, but it will dramatically reduce your losses. If you can also run it twice, I fail to believe that you can lose for that long - except as I said if you have more leaks than you think or stronger opposition.
