I was just approved for $630 a month in food stamps AND medicaid!

The 4 of us have been living on about $800 a month for the last few months, the foodstamps nearly double our spending power.

As for the medicaid, WOW, i can go to a real doctor, and maybe be able to see a urologist and and endocrinologist for my hormone problems! and maybe3, just maybe, i can see a better psychologist and get a better therapist then what I am currently seeing through community mental health.

I understand exactly what you mean. Two years ago I was living in a $250,000 house in a nice neighborhood and owned a small business. Now I live in 76 year old box and drive a 12 yo car. I'm also getting food stamps. I am so happy about that.

Mine is my own fault, I over reached, started business and then couldn't handle it

in reality, $21 a day for food is a little much, a lot of days when the kids are gone to their moms for a week at a time I eat nothing but peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. cost maybe $2 or $3 a day.We can probably eat steak every day when they are here.
