If I were you, I would check in with the military. Go and talk with a recruiter and explain that you want to become a commercial pilot and that you are wondering how they can help you get there. In so doing, you will gain the much needed flight time, not to mention experience, and you will be paid for your time and efforts. The airlines love people who have come out of the military.
Aviation is proof that, given the will, we have the capacity to achieve the impossible.
