And I get super pissed when they try to change the amounts.
Let me explain:
I have a college degree and had a good job with good benefits when my son was born.
He has always been a challenge.
When he started pre- k, he started to go backwards. And it got worse from there.
In kindergarten he was sent home most days for having bm's in his pants.
I finally realized that there was no way I could hold down my job. My son needed me. Since he has been diagnosed in the autism spectrum.
There have been so many school meetings and doctor appointments... It in itself is a full time job.
So yes I get Ss to supplement out income. We are treading water financially .
I get so annoyed when they try to take it away. I have put into the system since I was 14, with 2 jobs at most times. If I need a little help I do feel I should be able to get it.
I also get annoyed with ppl who bash ppl such as my self, I want to say : " what would you do?"
It's not that I don't want to work, I do! But I can't ! My kid requires to much right now. Trust me this is not what I had planned for.
