I do not want to be on WIC. We used to make good money. Unfortunatley, we do get WIC now. No food stamps or anything else though. We were doing really good financially, then I decided to go to nursing school. We were doing fine without assistance at first with just dh's income. We just cut back. He worked overtime. Well dh has a county job and there were state budget cuts that shut down one facility and overtime wasn't available anymore. So we signed up for WIC and I am waiting to start working at my old job again part-time instead of fulltime so I still have time for school. WIC just helps in the meantime. I feel super embarrassed when I use it :( People automatically assume you are lazy. I have a smart phone, but it's one I bought 2 years ago and I use Wal Mart's straight talk plan.
You never know a person's situation.
