Nice to know you are still a windmill charger. A trait I appreciate, along with your offer of some kind of assistance. Just being willing to hear this is a great service.
What has struck me about all of this is that those with the most concrete means to help (financial based) are the most likely not to, and come up with the most absurd ideas for ways for me to manage things; like selling my childrens eggs to a fertility clinic? Employment opportunities in Washington D. C.?
I have a wonderful friend that has not been able to work much for the past few years due to health issues, and yet, he has been the most generous with time, transportation, food, whatever we might need. There is no way he should be doing it, yet he does. He has such an appreciation for what it means to be without, that he gives whatever he has without hesitation. Of course, I throw it right back his way, in whatever way I can manage. It's hilarious that two people that have so little are trying to keep each other afloat.
The state "assistance" program is also a joke. I can get "assistance" if I quit working and go to job training. I have to jump through all kinds of hoops to get any "assistance" with feeding my family, and I have no idea what I need to do to get any medical care. And; if I call my case worker more than one time per week, my case will get put on hold till she decides that I have been punished enough for bugging her. And I paid how much in taxes over the years to pay her salary?
Ok, no more ranting. Time for sleeping so I can be fresh to go at the dragon again
