I made about 12,000 dollars last year. I have one dependent in college. I pay my rent, eat fairly well. My bills are paid for the most part...I don’t own a car because I cannot afford one. I don’t live outside my means. I have a small apartment that is warm and dry. My soon to be ex husband lives on 50,000+ a year with his girlfriend (she works as well) Divorce sucks...but I will not go the EBT way so long as I can eat and stay warm. I am considered poor in this country...but if I can have something to eat and keep warm, I am a lot richer than most people on the planet...for that I am grateful.
God bless and keep you. You ARE a LOT richer than most ;)
and you have Free Republic! A dysfunctional family all its own.
