"...not telling anyone to stop feeling sorry for themselves." Sounds pretty underhanded to me.edit on 17-11-2013 by AfterInfinity because: (no reason given)
Instead of posting your life on a conspiracy website, why not research how to make the money that you do receive stretch a little further. I was on food stamps before, it was my last resort and it wasn't easy especially living in the highest taxed state in the nation. I didn't go on the internet complaining about how I can't eat steaks and the like. Instead I came up with dinner ideas that would last me for a month on a very limited budget. You can get HEAP and other programs that will pay for your utilities during times of hardship. I'm thankful that I have found a great job and got out of the funk I was in. Pick your head up and stop feeling sorry for yourself. Change your thinking and it will change you. Good luck.
I worked 2-3 jobs since I was 16 and supported 2 others and never took foodstamps so what? The Op has schizophrenia it only gets worse not better.
You seem like a great ball of positivity. Glad you never had to take food stamps.
I didn't have to take food stamps because I worked my butt off and sacrificed a lot. I'm not holding anyone else to my standards. I'm not telling anyone else to stop feeling sorry for themselves.

Do you know how to cook greens? My husband loves them but the recipe I was told had pork in it so I never tried it and cannot remember now how I was told to make it... but they are a healthy and inexpensive alternative also I think for a vegetable...

I grew up poor so I don't mind when my tax dollars go to feed people.
I can afford whatever I want in groceries, I spend $20-30 per week on groceries........ Its just me and being single its probably more like a refugee camp around here.
I buy big jugs of protein and drink at least 3 shakes a day.
I buy the 2 1/2 dozen large eggs and whatever bacon is on sale $5, Sara Lee bread$2, peanut butter, bananas, $5 1lb ground beef, whole wheat angel hair,$5 prego$4
That's $21 and I rounded up. Typically its about $20.
be careful if that is WHEY protein! I did the same for a long time while in my 20's and then in mid 30's developed a SEVERE lactose intolerance problem literally OVERNIGHT. ask around at the local gym I did, and discovered a few similar guys that have lifted for years and also stapled with whey protein during cycles.
