No I can't get food stamps. I have already tried. My unemployment was too much. But it barely pays the regular bills. It doesn't cover my medication. I have to take twenty dollars a week for food for me and my cats and take it from something else. I was turned down.
I am not knocking food stamps and I don't know wher eyou got that idea. However, I can't get food stamps because I have unemployment which only covers my rent, electric and other monthly bills. I have no grocery money. I know single ladies everyday who are denied food stamps because they don't have children. I know single men who can't get food stamps because they are men. I know single women with children who get more food stamps than they can use. How does it balance out. My point is that we don't look out for the senior citizens who have paid into the system all of their life and one day comes and you are told you are to old and your job lets you go and there is no help. Your children are raised. You better have been fortunate enough to have had a nest egg. I wasn't. I am sorry you misunderstood.
You are one of the lucky ones. Usually if they ask for money they are bogus and you don't make any money. There are many people out there that could use your information. I don't need it but I am always getting advertisements to work online and from the research I have done most of them are bogus. Best of luck to you
You are one of the lucky ones. They are still denying many people who are in need of disability. I know of one situation where she will probably be dead before they approve it and it's going on seven years. They have also gotten very picky about disability in the last two years. They are not approving for some things that were approved before and that is why they now have the list of 50 qualifying areas. I have been waiting two years. My doctor is furious and I was just called by my attorney this week and the appeal was denied. I now have to start the complete process over. I can only stand fifteen minutes and walk one fourth of a block due to the pain in my back. I have been through tons of medical evaluations. I have no income and the system is broke. I have been told by both social security and my attorney that If I become homeless and go to a shelter I will get it faster. Why should I? I paid into the system for forty years. It really depends on your type of disability. I have a friend whose husband can't breathe and has severe problems daily. It took him six months to qualify. I talk with people on a daily basis who are struggling to qualify including people who have reached the age of social security and it takes forever. But with disabilities the average is 3-5 years. This is my field of expertise and I deal with this on a daily basis. I have another friend who has been fighting for three years due to severe injuries from domestic violence which not only affected her ability to work but her ability to walk. They won't even talk to her before May. People don't realize how many ligitimate situations are being pushed aside and having to wait and their is no help for housing, food, etc if you don't have children. It's a very serious situation which is only going to be compounded by our economy.
I am excited. Things are starting to move now. Orders are starting to come in slowly. My website will be up and running hopefully by the end of the week. janasdreams.com . I never thought I would live to see this happen it is so exciting and I have had so much support from my friends. I want to thank everyone for their support and kindness.
