I'm new here, i have posted before about my bf and the fact that i was investigated because im on assistance. Well heres alittle about me: I have been divorced since october 2012, i have two boys and my youngest son has Autism and developmental delays. I have had horrible luck finding and keeping a job. MY only income is SSI for my youngest son and child support i get every two weeks and even that amount varies. I'm so stressed out! i am getting welfare benefits right now have been for about 11 months now, and i feel like crap because of it. I have to pull my con out of daycare because assistance wont pay for it because im not working outside of the home right now my employment plan is written as special medical so i can care for him at home. I just wanna be off assistance i feel like im being watched ever since the stupid guy from the county came over a month ago. I live in fear all the time and i know i did nothing wrong. Am i a bad person for being on assistance? I have just enrolled in school and plan to go for medical transcription so i can work from home and care for my kids. i figure if i cant find suitable employment im going to school to better my future. Should feel this way and be worried all the time? Thanks ladies I just need a good support system and people i can relate to.
