Baltimore is one of the most inexpensive places to live in the USA except maybe Detroit. What the fuck are you talking about? Rural is the worst place to be for finding a job, user. I do not have a car, obviously.
>Why did the government cut you off?
Food stamps are a limited time only, idk how much you know about it. Typically less than 6 months. I was getting benefits before I had that job, when I got the job they cut me back to $8 a month foodstamps. They really dont give you anything unless you have a bunch of kids. You all are ignorant of social services in USA. I hope this is a wakeup call for you people.
>Do you have ANY other expenses at all that you haven't mentioned?
Tons. Rent is all I am focused on for now (and not starving to death, but it has been a very slow process of losing all that weight. I hardly noticed it over 2 years.)
My family is dead, save for my mother who has Alzheimer or dementia or something. We dont have a lot of contact. I was raised inside a locked facility for juveniles by the gov. I also have no credit save for student loans my dear mother took out in my name 10 years ago and no one ever paid. (Im not going to turn her in, Im waiting till she dies to settle that debt.)
So I am not getting any income tax money back, its all being garnished by the state for the loans.
I also have chronic joing problems due to having lymes disease from being homeless and living in the woods 3 years ago before I got the job that I just quit.
Anything else you guys want to know? I realize I am complaining like a bitch, but Im just trying to sort this out and am honestly a little frustrated. It is doable to make it out of poverty, but sometimes it takes generations.
Ive been working for 2 years trying to make things happen and Ive just been losing money that whole time somehow without spending on any luxuries, haircuts, razers, barely any food, never eating out, gave up drinking years ago, no junkfood, etc.
