It's too long to post the whole article, but it's the MOST honest look at it, at the feelings of it, I have ever read.

Seriously that's the most pathetic thing I've ever read. All she does is make excuse after excuse for why she is poor and can't do any better and then at the end asks for money In a fund she set up. And she said the thing about having kids and people getting mad about that but even madder if you have abortion . Guess what wear a condom !!! If you can't afford them track your periods and when your most likely fertile don't have sex. This article is ridiculous. Waste of time .

This has been posted on a few separate occasions today.

I am neutral on this article because it's an opinion piece and honestly, we've all got our own bridges to build.

Oh fuck off. Really. Those aren't excuses. They are feelings. That is how it FEELS. When you are at the bottome it FEELS like you will never make it up, people like you make it that way.

Yep! Poor people often have interesting stories. Have you read Angela's Ashes?

Didn't realize it had been posted. Been gone all day and got home, saw it on facebook and posted without checking. It's honestly more that opinion. It's how it really feels to be that poor. It feels like you can't get up, no matter what. I have been there. Luckily I met a wonderful man who pulled me up, but it's not that way for everyone. A lot of people don't have anyone to pull them out of the despair extreme poverty can cause.
