2013/05/28: Sudden Monetary Problems, Part Ducks
Created: / Modified:
So, I got an email from my caseworker at the state-welfare office, saying that the reason they're dropping cash support is that
I did not get accepted by Social Security before July 1, 2011 (EDIT: wait no, I misread it, it's just because it was my second rejection, and I applied for their services before July 1, 2011). Which doesn't make any goddamn sense, especially considering how long it's taking everyone to get accepted. That's red tape for you, I guess.
I also discovered that it is slightly easier to initiate a phone conversation with my lawyer when I am feeling somewhat angry and I immediately get a voicemail message. Now that it's been a little while longer, this isn't going to help me with any of my other phone calls I need to make, but ...
Basically the bottom line is I need to actually start making money, and start getting something like $500 each month. And I need it, y'know, pretty fast. The problem with which is, I kinda feel like if something job-like within biking-distance was going to happen, it would have happened years ago when I was still seriously searching for jobs, including when I had help from multiple job-coaches and specialists in the field of "helping aspies get jobs." Which is why I'm getting welfare in the first place! So basically I'm kinda fucked unless something turns up by goddamn magic.
