I woke up from a dream this morning…
The last thing I remember I was in a movie theater lobby.
I was on the phone with my mom, asking her where my trumpet and saxaphone were.
She told me where they were and then sang this into the phone
Baby you’ll do just fine
Always forever be mine.
My mother sang to me in my dream last night.
I woke up, glanced at my phone,
And for half a second believed I had a message from her waiting for me.
And then I remembered.
The aching in my heart flared.
I sobbed into my pillow.
And the morning was quiet.
You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
people who disseminate false information about food stamps are pieces of shit.
It was just recently that Mecklenburg County allowed Food Stamps to buy diapers and clothing. You got ppl out here who gotta sell their food stamps to buy bus passes and toilet paper
like stop it 5
But you can tho? If you have cash assistance on your EBT account you can use it to buy anything? And its the same card so to (nosy) onlookers it looks like “this persons doing blah blah with food stamps”
Which is just like
A. Mind ya bidness
B. Mind ya bidness
C. It ain’t ya bidness
D. Mind ya bidness
Because this isn’t really about ppl misusing food cards (I dont like callin it stamps), its about nosy entitled mf’s who believe poor ppl dont deserve ANYTHING at all, so they find or make up (most likely made up) these “stories” and act like all ppl with food cards are irresponsible and lazy and all that when really the average person is just trying to have enough to last them the month.
the doors of the church are open
Blessed are those who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.
I need to learn how to stop destroying myself, stop being hard on myself and be nice to myself.
