The Benefit of Benefits

So I lost it at the clinic yesterday....
Obviously the money I was making in ES is not enough to cover the mountain of expenses in the US but.. There are benefits! Food stamps, assistance, and medical care. Yippee! Most of which you can apply for now online and then after verifying blah blah blah... you're in.
I don't qualify for a lot of that stuff.
There is a benefit to benefits however.
You get to go to the department of social services and wait there to be told no. And while you are waiting you get to hear everyone's tale of woe. Sob story after sob story. I am shocked at how much people are willing to tell complete strangers. Like we give a fuck. We have our own sob story.
So the benefits of benefits is now knowing that their are people out there who are worse off then me. Give them the benefits, since clearly they don't even have the sense to not tell random strangers how they just spent a month in the psych ward. I will just try and manage with what I got, especially this medical stuff.
Which leads me back to the clinic yesterday....
They should stop leaving people on hold for an hour. Three days of this with no call backs. So after another half hour hold I went there, phone in hand still on hold, for the referrals that I need for my son. She told me to call to make the appointments. I turned the volume up on the phone and asked her if she could just answer the call I was on hold for now.
She got the benefit of my crazy.

That's hilarious! I swear to you I did almost the exact same thing the other day to talk to someone about healthcare benefits for my kids too. I was also on hold for over an hour. I was on hold so long the line got cut when it was quitting time and the other time they hung up. It was enough to get me down there in person while also waiting on hold. I talked shit about it too!

So glad you're blogging again!! I was worried about you and your son. Glad you both are ok. I can't wait to read more about what happened.

All you do is complaint about the US!! Go back to ElSalvador since it was so great too you! First thing you do is get on public aid! Your son has an infectious disease from mosquito and you act like that is normal! I hope your daughters will one day forgive you! Get it together!

How about you come here so that he can spread his infectious disease to your sorry ass. Seems like you are the one who is having problems getting it together. This is a blog whose point from day one was to complain, while at the same time showing the good... you know lemonade from lemons. And I am pretty sure that my "daughters" have forgiven me since I have none. Idiot. Leave El Salvador you said.. and now that I have you are still angry? Get out of your mother's basement and go find a life of your own.

You have daughters!! Wow..... The ones you abandon with your ex husband with when you cheated with this fool. Remember you talk about everything on blogs and facebook. Remember you left them and headed to Canada? Those daughters that you abandon!

I am starting to think that maybe you have fallen in love with me. That's the only explanation I can come up with for my you take such a vested interest in my life and blog, yet make vague attempts to criticize MY choices. Sorry sweetie, but I don't do ignorant. Best of luck to you though. There's some white trash out there right now sipping on a Schlitz just waiting for you to come along and cook some meth with them.

prox 190-you're right, I am in love with you and I'm jealous. I take back all the stupid things I have posted because I really didn't mean it. I'm just one of those random idiots who likes to critize others lives and doesn't know how to use my own language properly because I don't even know the difference between your and you're. It just goes to show the fact that I am one of those chicken shit anonymous trolls who posts stupid comments about things I know nothing about just to irritate you.
You deserve to take full advantage of the any public aid available to you. Especially since your country forced you out in the first place. If it weren't for that you wouldn't have had to come back and try to start all over again.
I get it now. Sorry for any offensive comments I have left. I'm just your average Trump supporter. Please take it easy on me. I need to get my meth fix now so if I start posting more chicken shit comments, please forgive me. I'm just not myself when I do drugs.

Just for the record that was not me! So your being sarcastic and writing to yourself! Your a fool! No one will apologize to you for your stupid actions!

WTF? I just read some of these comments. I hate anonymous people who leave comments. Worthless POS. Go crawl back under your rock.
