  • I Don't Want to

    Friends asked me to apply for fs and m'caid. I said I would, but I really don't want to.

    I just want a job for now.

    Fs? As in food stamps?

    ....ETA: praying for your guidance in this matter. For what it's worth, I don't think it's a bad idea, to get yourself over the hump.

      Teal, the way I look at it is, you do whatever it is that helps the situation. And regrettably, from me that's lame advice, since I would never be able to face the stares at the supermarket. :(
      3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures --1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (borrowed with gratitude from 37818's sig)

          There is nothing wrong with people who need the help getting Foodstamps or other welfare. That is what it is there for. I only have problems when someone takes advantage of the system. You are not doing that. You are trying to get a job, and need help in the meantime.

              It's all done discreetly with a debit card nowadays isn't it?

                Your taxes from your previous job helped pay for them, for just such an emergency. Use it until you don't need it and don't worry about it. esp since they are trying to deny you Unemployment benefits...
