There is nothing out there for people who are applying, waiting and praying for disability benefits. There are tons of programs for people who can work and need help getting back on their feet but there is nothing for people who physically and/or mentally cannot work.
Which means they have no income. Zero. If married or partnered up it comes with its own challenges of missed income, but its a tad easier than being single (I’m guessing here, I know it’s not a cake walk either way).
Being single and being a single parent who cannot work but still trying to maintain some sort of independence is an oxymoron. You still have to apply for state assistance, housing and whatever else your state may offer.
You think you would get the support of your family, but nope, your mooching off them and why can’t you just get a job until your disability is approved.
Cause then I wouldn’t need disability, but you know I’m lovin’ stressing out over rent, food, electricity. And now transportation since the car dealership went back on their word and decided that what you were paying wasn’t enough so I returned the car.
And now I get cussed out nearly daily from a relative who’s car I am borrowing… so yeah.
I don’t understand why they can’t start your benefits and then stop/deduct them if you aren’t approved. This is just a single mom barely holding it together vent.
