I am 41 years old. Been on my own since I was sixteen. I have a wife and two children. I always made my own way. I have my own house with a mortgage. I have my own business, construction company.
I could go and ask for food stamps and energy assistance but can't bring myself to ask for a handout.

The worst part is that I let all this affect me in a negative way.
