Bills

Sadly life in America has become just about nothing but. When there is no expendable income, that means you basically are working for just a roof over your head and to eat. Some sarcastic pundits would call that slavery. Of course in my case I do not work, but disability is subsistence level as you all know. Some out there are questioning all this. People have always had to pay bills, but I think people once worked to live not the other way around and there was other parts to life where life wasn't just a constant slog up hill. The small stuff keeps many of us going but some look around and know and understand life was meant to be MORE!

  1. Life was meant to be more. I spent so much of my life trying to race up hill. I remember having to pay the bills, then seeing what was left for food, sometimes not very much.

    And my, we try our best. And a piece is always missing. I never learned to be a warm person, and I'm cold at times, just like mother. I noticed that because I was with my children today. I might never beat that battle either. Who knows what else there is?

    1. I think it was meant to be more. I am worn out from the bills. I dream of "escape" into a better life. You can't plan or do anything when there is no money. I am sorry you have regrets with your children, you did try your best. I have worried about being too cold at times from my upbringing, we can get fleas. I hope things improve with your adult children.

    1. Yeah I have had some tell me that junk. How poor are you if you have the internet? Well internet doesnt mean one is swimming in money. My husband needs it to do his bit of work. They would have the poor living in shacks starving and in the gutter to please Ayn Rand or something. Bunch of useful idiots for the bankers. Oh I posted this poster on a social website, and unfriended someone who wrote a snotty comment about those who "live off the system" and "refuse to work". There's a dummy who can't even figure out the unemployment numbers are cooked, but I the disrespect was too much and I am not putting up with rudeness from toxic family members why do it from an acquaintance.

    Don't suffer fools -- you may never convince them, but if you peck at them enough, you can put them in their place...and shut them up! Or shut them down, I suppose, in this case.

    1. I sure have had a lot of fools lately to contend with. LOL about pecking at them and putting them in their place. I had this woman as an acquaintance, but my warnings that she was not very nice, came when she yelled at Aspie me for "fidgeting" too much.

  4. It's terrible and I struggle with this too. You know exactly how it feels when the entire society lumps you in a category of "lazy, shiftless, STUPID, parasites who leech off others." They don't know or care that so many of us work our butts off, or like you, SIMPLY CANNOT WORK. We live in an empathy deprived society, and it gets worse with every passing year. Empathy is thought of us a fault, a weakness, and only the "tough survive" We live in society that holds up narcissistic values as virtues. There's something very wrong with this picture.-- Lucky Otter

    1. Yes the abuse of those who are poorer is increasing too. It is quite distressing. It has to do with the increasing narcissism and evil, where status and money is everything. So many are underpaid now, they work full time [or a bunch of part time jobs hooked together] and live in poverty. Yes empathy is seen as something bad now among the sharks too and one sees this message everywhere, of only the tough survive.
