Wow, my notifications are being wonky! If anyone else replied to my vent, sorry, I most likely didn’t get a notification for it.
Thank you for the suggestions, I recently found out there’s a place at my work where you can get grocery cards, and donated food. They also offer gas cards, which is nice. Unfortunately I make too much money to qualify for food stamps, and they turned down my mom for… whatever reason. We used to have a real nice garden in the yard before my mom blew out the discs in her spine, everything sorta died since we both split the labor, picking it all up myself was a little overwhelming with a 9 to 5. Also it’s kinda funny, but our cats keep laying on the saplings, so they die before even getting a chance. Lmao! Maybe I can get my mom to keep an eye on that stuff… but I need to save up for some usable soil first, siiiiiiigh. Living in a desert, with hard, gravelly, dirt, is so nice.
Recently my mom passed a test for a job she’s been wanting, and has an interview tomorrow for a separate job, so hopefully she at least gets one of those. She’s also looking to get disability since she’s not fully functioning anymore.
You know what’s funny is despite working a temp fulltime job, and picking up the heavier physical labor at home, people still call me lazy just because I live with my mom. Most of the time they know my job can go at any time, so it’s like they want me to be on the streets. My mom would also be on the streets if I wasn’t living with her, possibly fully crippled from too many back injuries trying to do everything herself.
Like, hell no! I’d rather be dead than screw us both over just cuz some dumbasses have some kind of insecurity about adult offspring still living with their parents.
