I have been getting food stamps for a YEAR now... I just had to go in and renew, and I found out that...even though I am single, unemployed and 8 months pregnant, because I am a STUDENT for another 2 weeks.... they are taking away my food stamps. Really???!!! Seriously??? And I can't reapply bc in order to get it back, they need a student discharge letter or something. I will be going back in fall...but I cant work bc I cant afford child care. Im SO PISSED OFF RIGHT NOW! The lady treated me like I was some sort of liar telling me I never claimed I was a student originally, then when I asked her when I applied, she told me last June. Well DUH! I wasnt a student last june, hence the reason I never said so!!! Aaaahhh. I try not to let stuff like this ruin my mood/day... but it already has. ANd I have lots of homework... but I cannot focus on it. Awesome. Thank you for letting me flip out a little.Answer Question

I would think in order to get a good job you need to get an education. Your 8 month pregnant and they took your food stamps away because your going to school to improve your life. However, if you stay home and do nothing to better your life you qualify for assistance. Maybe this is why people don't better themselves they are afraid that they will loose their benefits. Does not make sense to me. Hope all works out for you!
