What the fuck? Doesn't your disability prevent you from working? How the shit do you end up with less than $500 a month for that?


i only got 421 from disabilty.. im usa, disablity is based off of your work income.


Jegus. I make more than that in a week and I work in a pretty low paying industry. I'm impressed you guys can even live off of that.


as depressing as it is to say, you get used to it

my circumsances are lucky, my grandparents make 150k a year -this is in retirement- my grandpa made 250k before that, so they help us sometimes, with food and car insurance only tho, and only SOMETIMES
then, the apartment I live in has been in the family for almost 100 years, so rent is cheap -only family or relatives live in it-
otherwise every where else is 600+
my landlord, great aunt died in October, luckily aunt nancy didn't sell it, otherwise I would have had to go to section 8, the ghetto, because my grandma said she wouldn't take us in OR we would have to live in the pool house that is as long as a sofa, and about 7feet wide, so like 8 by 7 or something lol
honestly I feel bad for having stuff like a CR sub, and games, and a phone cuz I didn't buy em, it was holiday presents- besies the cr sub-

TECHNICALLY I get like 650,or 600, something but 200 or so is deducted for insurance which leaves me at 475
im considered 150 percent below poverty and still don't qualify for food stamps

Virginia is bitch

oh andmy moms income is considered mine too, prob why I don't qualify , we "make too much" legit what we have been told lol - she gets just a little more than me from disability, we both have the same heart condiitin but she has IV's for hers twice a week, among other shit that's wrong, too much to explain lol=




Hearing your disability financial problems makes me worried about my possible future with my SO who will likely be on disability.

I don't blame you, I feel like I am gonna be a huge burden, and that I shouldn't even get married .. or have kids,,..

Flee to Canada. Claim asylum.


we really thought about it last year
only ting is, 1, to poor to even make the move
2. family is stillhere besides us
and 3 we don't know how my mom , whose health is very complex, would be taken care of



I would love the cold weather tho, fuck this dry vagina heat , I swear


I get that a dry vagina sucks but I can definitely tell you that the solution would be treatment rather than a change of temperature.

The demands for rent to live on campus is unbelievable. I'd say the suggested solution is kick any drug habits or excessive partying. I don't believe you go to college without knowing the financial cost because you're supposed to go there prepared. If you can't pay rent and have money for food and you didn't calculate that beforehand I don't know what to tell you.

Might want to go back and edit for content.


You could move to Alaska. That'd get you cold weather, there aren't any jobs up there anyway, and I understand disabilities pays out pretty high.

Basically they make living off of the State, whatever state it is, their job. They go after SNAP, WIC, Medicaid, housing assistance, everything. All the time.

Which is what these 'homeless' students could be doing, if they weren't doing drugs or something.

idk how it is other places....but here in my town, there is racism towards white disability people...blatant in your face "i wont help you"
they will do everything for a black person that's infront of you in line, no questions asked- literally- when its the same thing you are asking help with -"sure boo I can do that for you"
and once im next in line -if the black person behind me isn't called to go infront of me to skip me that is- its oh im sorry, cant you ask your church for help ? or family
and this is for simple services that can help,

its just...so wrong, all of it, to be denied help because of my skin color, and then just the factof how much I get anyways
its beyond frustrating
sorry..

Maybe financially it will be tough, but for me, my SO gives me the motivation to actually try and make something of myself to begin with. In January I will actually try and apply for a good opportunity that I normally would not have the motivation to even bother giving it a chance.

For someone like me, having someone precious to take care of makes me perform over twice as well as normal, and so whatever kind of extra weight they are financially or whatever is cancelled out by my new drive to succeed.

Also, I have talked to my SO and we discussed that since they would be home all the time, they would do the housework; cooking, cleaning, etc. Those are things that I generally suck at and don't bother doing, so they will definitely be improving my life in a more direct way that way.

Basically what I'm trying to suggest is that there is more than one way to have a life with someone and that there really is someone out there for just about everyone. You just have to work hard at what you can do and try your best to be a good partner for someone that will appreciate your existence. If you aren't good at home things, just get better and practice so that you can proudly say that you can take care of such responsibilities for a possible partner.

Sorry this is just me rambling because I am very tired and also I feel for you, since my SO will likely be on disability as well and is already feeling like a burden and etc. like you mentioned. Which utterly breaks my heart to hear, because really, they are so wonderful that they could never be a burden. And I'm sure you could find someone that feels the way I do for my SO but for you.

This post is probably all jambled up and confusing and I apologise I just felt the need to say all this and hopefully spread some hope to you

As Redokami said: Fuck college.

Trade schools are honestly a better option at this point, if I were a parent, id suggest my kid to go to a trade school instead of college.

It would be difficult, but I would say to not really worry about it. Don't look for trouble when there's work to be done, and there's always work to be done.
