Hopefully its just temporary...but we're not making ends meet at all and we've tried everything. Our budget just can't stretch anymore. Don't bash, please! I'm feeling bad enough as it is :/

Then why for the love of God, would you post in here? I know it's Mom Confessions but really, it's the biggest bitch group I've ever seen!

We just got off of them. It is hard, but we are grateful to be making more. We were on them for 4 months.

That's ok. My family just got on them last week. :-(

Serious blow to our pride, but feeding the kids trumps our pride. So, here we are. Hopefully we'll only need them for 3 months or so.

Just use it as intended, and helping hand up, and not a lifestyle choice.

*I* won't fault you. I get GA including FS. You need to learn to not give a fuck what judgemental twat faces have to say. It's your life and your family. You take care of you. It's not forever.

You pay taxes?  The money you have paid into for years goes into these programs. Don't beat yourself up over it. These programs are there to help, unfortunately there are those that abuse the program and hinder those who really need it from obtaining the help they need.

Thank you. That's where we're at- feed our kids and keep them healthy, or let them be hungry.

Yes, we pay taxes. We're just not making it right now, so thank you. We need the help.
