I'm sorry to hear that, man.

For me, it's spending my days wasting away in the house. It's complicated, but I don't have and can't get a job at the moment, and I have absolutely nothing to do.

I think we've all been there. I sure was and its how I got back into paintball haha. Couldn't find anything, anywhere outta college and ended up picking up weekend shifts at the local park. I had to buy a new mask to ref with and once I did that, well then I might as well get a new hopper, and then why not a barrel, and it was a slippery slope haha.

I'd love to be able to do that, honestly. I've got all of my gear (except a mask), but I don't have the money or the transportation to be able to go and play, or even ref. There aren't any fields "close" to where I live (they're all an hour or more away), and most of them don't pay people to ref anyways.

No, I've just got a lot of bad luck in life.

Things have been bad in the past, but lately, they're just downright terrible. A while back I was forced to make a choice I never thought I would have to make. I was working at a local 7-Eleven, and although I hated it, it was keeping the bills (my car and my phone) paid. However, I lost my health insurance (and I have Type 1 Diabetes) and my mom and I lost our food stamps. The money she makes barely pays the household bills (rent and utilities), so we started to run out of food, even after starting to go to the local food pantry twice a month.

As a result, I had to quit my job so we could get our food stamps back and I could get my health insurance back. After that I lost my car to the bank when I couldn't pay for it anymore, my cell phone is going to be shut off because it's past due, and I've accumulated quite a bit of credit card debt (enough to likely have to file bankruptcy). I'm 22 years old and I've got more stress and misery to deal with than someone who's in their 50's.

Yeah, it's not a good situation to be in. It's truly depressing, actually.

Thanks, though. It means a lot.

I know, right? It doesn't make any sense to me.

Obviously I don't expect to be making a ton of money at a great job and still be able to qualify for food stamps and health insurance, but I was working at a 7-Eleven, making $7.25 per hour, and working maybe 16 hours a week if I was lucky. How is that enough to completely cut my health insurance, knowing all too well that as a Type 1 Diabetic, I need a steady supply of insulin, which is very, very expensive. It's like they don't care that you have bills to pay; they think you can just pull extra money out of thin air to skate by...

With food stamps, they take the total household income, so between what I was making and what my mom makes, we were over the limit and they cut us. But, again, they don't care that we had bills to pay, and often times, the money that my mom made every month wasn't even enough to pay those, let alone buy hundreds of dollars in food...

Deep down I know that I need to get out on my own and start my life, but I just don't see how I can. I don't live in a good location for jobs, and I don't have friends that I can look into moving in with as roommates, and even if I did, who's going to want to be roommates with someone who doesn't have a car or a job? Nobody, because that'd be a horrible decision.

and then you have all these people who cheat the system and do absolutely nothing and get everything. the people where all 4 people in the house are getting EBT, welfare, unemployment, etc. and here in california then they are also getting calfood or whatever it is called with other ****, and in my area they have this thing where the goverment gives you like $500 a person for if you have someone over 65 in the household. so a certain group of people in the area i live in say that their 5 grandparents live with them so then they are getting an extra $2500 a month for absolutely nothing. especially when said elderly person doesn't even live with them

Exactly. The reason the system works the way that it does now is because of people like that, who milk the system simply because they can, and they're too lazy and incompetent to actually do something with their lives. Then, people like myself and my mom who actually need the help get screwed over when we can't get it. It's sickening. I wish I didn't have to rely on the system, but I do.
