This just sounds so unfair. Is there anyway you could take the 30.00 pay cut so that you would be eligable for the state help? I know that sounds stupid, but it would pay for itself in one visit. It just isn't worth losing the help. I don't work because if I did my husband wouldn't be able to get help. I worked one year and then found out that if I could continue to work it would really hurt us, so I quit my job. I sometimes work a couple of months around the holidays, but that is all I can work.
I would figure out how much an hour it takes to make the 30.00 and have them cut your pay. That way you would still qualify for the benefits. Or else cut back on your hours. This really seems unfair. Like you say, you are trying, you are working. But there are so many who don't need or deserve. And they get encouraged to participate. I hope that you get something figured out soon. Keep brainstorming, I am sure that you will come up with a solution.
In the meantime we will try to help. Take care, take it one day at a time.
PS I forgot about needymeds.com . Try bthem out for free meds.
