That’s a significant savings being a food stamp recipient on top of the money you get from the government for food in the first venue
A majority of people don’t wake up in the day plus tell themselves, “I’m going to constantly ask for help all the time.” There’s a great deal of strength plus courage in having the humility to ask for assistance when you absolutely need it, but it’s also human nature to strive for self-sufficiency. It makes us feel relatively nice about ourselves when every 1 of us are independent plus capable. My disabled family members would supply anything to be as physically capable as they were in the past, plus it breaks my heart to see it. My mother told myself and others once that his body is his prison plus it made myself and others well up with tears almost immediately. I genuinely feel incredibly blessed that the few disabilities that I have do not hold myself and others back so much that they make a “regular life” impossible at this stage. I have to be mindful of how I use my left arm, but my only actual struggle is my finances. Applying for food stamps made myself and others feel totally worthless at first, but now that I’m also getting discounts at the medical cannabis dispensaries it actually feels empowering. There are several major cannabis shop companies in our state that offer discounts on all purchases if you have a food stamps card. One dispensary offers 20% off, another offers 15% off, plus the final comes in around 10% off. That’s a significant savings being a food stamp recipient on top of the money you get from the government for food in the first venue. Every little bit of savings actually helps, especially when I’m shopping at the medical cannabis shops in our state. Some have beautiful deals from time to time, but others have expensive prices on moderate cannabis products.
