Food stamps
« on: May 15, 2019, 12:33:30 am »
I receive food stamps. DH works FT and I did too until a year ago. Due to medical issues I will probably never be able to return to work. I have applied for disability. But I am so embarrassed! I was raised to believe people who got FS were lazy and worthless. FS are now loaded on a debit card so there is no stigma of handing over paper stamps. I doubt people behind me notice I use the debit card but I feel like they do. How can I get over this?

You become numb to it after a while. That, or you learn to shop when the store is dead...like the wee hours of the morning.

I'm on FS and it doesn't bother me at all honestly. No one knows the situation and it's not their business. I don't feel guilty for doing what I need to do to provide for my kids.

I've never been on food stamps but if someone used them or pulled out a card (however they come) I wouldn't know it or notice. I don't pay attention to how others pay for their groceries unless they're writing out a check.

You need to feed your family and if that requires food stamps, then use food stamps. You do what you have to do and don't worry about what others think. Furthermore, don't feel guilty or badly. They're available to help families put food on the table. So... eat! And keep it moving.

Trust me, no one but you realizes it. And the majority of people who get food stamps are people who have a financial or medical issue that came up suddenly. There is no shame in needed a little help, no shame at all.
if you don't think, you drown.

Unfortunately some do stare at cards to see if they are EBT. My 2nd cousin's girlfriend just posted a rant the other day about someone buying an energy drink with their EBT card.

If you truly need them, then there should be no reason to be ashamed.

My wish is that more people who are in need who have medical issues (like yourself) or true financial hardships (including the elderly) are able to qualify and get the help that they need.
It's the people who keep popping out kids...just so they don't have to work and can get aid that should be embarrassed.  (Like those driving up in a Mercedes Benz all bling'd out with jewelry to collect their aid.) It only pisses me off, when people like to cheat the system and it happens A LOT here on the West Coast.
If you need the aid to survive, then screw what others think. You're doing what you need to in order to get by and make ends meet.

When I was pregnant with my son, I was at the store with my 2 girls buying groceries with my EBT card and someone made a comment about how they wished I could buy condoms with EBT. Maybe I would use them if I could get them for free. I came seriously close to slugging the guy. It's not like my rapist would have used condoms anyway, not even if I asked him nicely. Trust me. I tried.

Yeah, you tried. You stayed after the first 2 and all 3 of your kids are a rapists. You didn't try hard enough and you didn't kill the man.

Please be joking because no human being can be this stupid. I did try hard enough. I was a minor, dumbass. I tried reporting him multiple times, I tried running away, I even tried getting married. And kill him? How? And what would that have solved? I would have gone to jail and my mother would get my kids. Plus killing someone isn't something that is easy to do. Shit happens. None of my kids are rapists. They're kids.

The kids are a rapist's spawn! You stayed over and over! I am very surprised they do not have a slew of disabilities due to incest! A 5 year old can get a gun and shoot someone! More than likely you would not have not gotten much jail time if any.

You're too fucking stupid to live. Seriously. My parents don't have guns so no I never had any access to a gun. And there is a big difference between a 5 year old playing with a loaded gun and hitting someone by accident and a traumatized child deliberately killing her father. My father is a judge and there is no abuse on the record. There is no way I wouldn't have done serious time for the premeditated murder of a judge. I had no choices. Every time I tried to run away, my father interfered. There is nothing wrong with my kids. They don't have any health problems and they are not rape spawn. How dare you call my kids rape spawn. How would you feel if I called your kids ignorant fucking cunt spawn, huh? You like that? Do you think that's ok? Well that must be what your kids are. They're grow up to be miserable old bitches just like their mother, sitting behind their computer screen insulting abuse survivors and their children. Too bad people like you are allowed to breed and inflict more evil into the world.

So they are not the result of rape?

Real talk though. Did you ever think about killing him? I mean know you didn't have guns but I'm sure you had a hammer or some sharp knives...
