Just think of all the good you could do, if you wanted to, if you could tell all the poor folks on A2K, about your good fortune with a Social Worker in NYCITy, who has helped you have all of your bills paid.
In so doing, A2K members who are needy and deserving of social/ financial assistance may benefit from your good fortune and solve their own social/ financial problems.
A2K members who are in need of financial assistance, and who live in the U.S., should check both their county and state Web sites for the types of financial aid and social service assistance that is available, and how to go about applying for it. This information, which is not exactly kept secret, and which may differ from state to state, is available to anyone who wants to bother seeking it out.
I do not consider receiving such assistance a stroke of "good fortune"--I'd reserve that for a lottery win or an unexpected inheritance. These benefits are one of the reasons we pay taxes, and I see the allocation of funds in this way as one of the better uses of my tax monies. And the amounts received rarely resolve all financial problems.
Can't you just be happy for Roberta that a terrible burden of continual anxiety about finances has been significantly eased for her? Why do the details of it matter to you? Why are you urging her to do anything to spread the word about it?
"Just think of all the good you could do, if you wanted to," by just sharing Roberta's sense of relief, and wishing her well, and letting her know you care about her welfare, and you're glad her life may now be a little easier for her. And, if those things don't matter to you, I'd have to wonder what your real motives are for posting in this thread.
