I had medicaid for a while and then gave up re the renewal process, which I shouldn't have.. long story, they didn't call when they said they would, and I was plotzed.
So, for the next years I accumulated med bills, making me worse off, always paying but slowly. I shaped up again to pay attention to all letters and I'll never avoid some envelope again.
Now I have food stamps. I get $85.00 a month, and I am used to that and can do it, but it's' slim. My ssc is circa $700., but I owe all of it.
I'm trying to figure out if I can sell some of my stuff and not have it count as income. I need to, as I am far behind on prop taxes. I pay off and on, but they are apt to come get me.
If they say no, that's a difficulty as I can't sell stuff easily to make more money than the years worth of food stamps, mostly for lack of mobility. That is, I'd need to grab more money by sales. But sales are problematic for me, re rushing to a post office.
I've dialed into not only a recitation of choices, but, after short musical interludes, something like five repeats of all that, after which they shut it off and tell you to call back later. I did that many times today. Meantime, even I want to zap the place. Why do they not just play music while you wait?
I read cookbooks while I endured the recitation again and again x 17.
Maybe I'll try at 4 a.m.
