PAlady please dont think I am trashing anyone whom has or is getting any type of assistance from any source out there. I have thru this mess of CP had to turned to just about anything I could squeeze a buck or another meal out of. My gripe is with the programs rules and regs and why so so many of us fall thru the cracks and well just folks like Kadan's Mom and she isnt the only one as I know alot more then her that have baby after baby and get more help then any number of us here.
I know well the it isnt their fault the system supports those situations and not others like ours but it isnt easy to stay placid when my kids have suffered and done without lots of things since I got hurt simply because I worked and paid into the very sytem that wont qualify me for anything.
There have been many a night I went to bed without eating so much as a bite the entire day out of fear one of my own wouldnt have that bite if they were hungry. I drive a car that is 18 years old and literally held together with duct tape! My neighbor with all the kids? She drives a new 09 Camry and made sure she put it in her sisters name since the system wont allow you to own anything worht more then $2500. I dont make enough in two months to even make a down payment on a 09 Camry or anything else for that matter.
I require $79 a month to fill all of my scripts and out of $800 I can say most of them dont get filled most months and I dont qualify for medicaid?
I cant count the times thru out the years of trying to raise my kids after CP that I went to bed hungry,without meds that I needed and or cried myself to sleep becuase I couldnt pay for one of their school pics for Gods sake. The hurt and pain that comes with having to tell a elementary child that they cannot go to the book fair because we dont have $5,how do you make them understand that when all the other kids are sent with $20?
Yet look around at some of these folks who have their kids Dad's living in their house and working and lying to the housing authority and the cabinet about the Dad's whereabouts so they wont go after them for the back welfare payments,so they dont have to turn in that income and raise their rent payments, putting new cars and boats and R.vs and yes this parking lot of this housing complex is full of them in somone else's name. They sell more foodstamps or trade them for drugs then I get a month or ever got.
Yes I get angry and yes it happens each and everyday and yet the systems never change and no it matters not what or how often you report it they manage to get away with it. Those kinds of things offend many many of us out here who put in our time and paid into that very system that pays for these cars and boats and no rent and even sends them a utility check each month to pay their electric bill with but they dont they let the energy program pay it and use the check for something else since it comes directly to them made out to them and not the utility company.
I will ask there that the mods or whomever has the authority to close this thread do so as it has outlived its purpose evidently and as the opening starter of it I guess I have the right to ask this please.
Hoping each of you have a nice day and again many many thanks for all the wonderful and caring folks who have followed this story of my grandson. I am very grateful for the time you all have taken to think of us and pray for him and I know those prayers did some good on some level.
