Instead of quote directly just gonna save space. I spent two months, 8 weeks, paying for food, rent, my car, insurance. At that point the money I arrived with and what I was earning would not have kept me: employeed, with meds, food and a place to sleep. You are an idiot for thinking that me giving up my car would be the smart choice. Explain how a person would get around to earn the money, in my case Montana, to eat and pay bills. I starved, obviously not to death and so assuming starving means you die without question is just genius.

You appear to be (or have been at least) a fucking mess. You're not a great argument for food stamps. Better mental health and education programs, yes. You're pretty much the argument against food stamps as a practical matter. Most people using food stamps aren't doing so because the can't afford food and their $800 a month transportation tab.


I went from earning roughly 2 grand a month, not on any govt assistance, easily afforded the 1600ish a month in bills I had. Moved across the country, one friend and her husband the only people I knew there and had it rough for a short while. 27 years of being a diabetic, never in the hospital for complications. My health is better then it should be. Blood test always showed I was within the parameters that doctors want for people in general.

As for mental health, can't clarify or deny any of that. I only take insulin for meds. Never had problems, other then extreme low blood sugar, dealing with anything on a mental level. I suffered for short periods of time which were far between and came out of it all.

For what its worth, I never followed a damn diet for my diabeties. I eat candy randomly, stuff myself full of carbs, no greenier as I just don't like it. My eye sight has remained the same and I have no complications related to diabeties. So yeah I am a wreck.
