after i asked if i was abusing the system i felt compelled to cancel my wic appoitnment for today and cancel the assistance all together. the lady on the other line seemed confused but said she would cancel it if that's what i wanted.

  • How about this then since you did cancel. Wait it out like you said and see how you are getting by if at all. If you aren't getting by are just making it, then make another appt. People still work and can qualify for WIC.

  • Depends....are you abusing the system? There isn't anything wrong with being on assistance if you need it. I think most people are bothered by people sitting on it for long periods of time instead of trying to help themselves. We all need help every now and then.

  • If you weren't abusing the system, you shouldn't have canceled. If you were, you made a good choice.

  • Why did you feel you were abusing it? Was it because one of these moms told you that you were being "lazy" and "expect the gov't to take care of your baby"? Ignore them. If you need the help. then you need the help. Don't let these women keep you from getting the assistance you need.

  • Did the lady from WIC ask you if you where abusing the system? Or did someone else? Anyways? I don't think you can really abuse the system when you are on WIC. Also if you need it go for & don't cancel.

  • And WIC is only for a 5-year period maximum, so it's not like you'd be on it indefinitely.

  • Even with what I said on the other post, I DON'T think you should cancel your WIC appointment. Just be honest with them, and see what they say. Simple as that.
