Hello there readers,
Please let me speak up about something that has been really seriously angering me. Mind you I am not having a pity party. ￼
Of ALL the issues from all those who are running for president I have yet to hear anything about what they are going to do for the people who live with a disability & have to rely on service coordinators & services to live a decent life.
Services that people with disabilities like myself rely are benefits like SNAP, HEAP, SSI, and benefit health system (which in my opinion makes it really difficult for me a lot of the time). I just have a hard time getting my meds because the pharmacy CANNOT fill it until I am completely out of my meds which causes me to be anxious and stressed out.
And something that ties into this is 30 years ago next year a bill was signed into law— the bill I am talking about is the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) I have yet to hear anything from the candidates about helping people with disabilities. And no mention of this historic nature of this bill, either.
I want to work but applying for jobs has almost become a waste of my time (I feel) and now hearing what DT (he deserves no respect from me) is doing to those who rely on SNAP (like myself) to live is taking money away from children who need it because he decided to balloon the deficit with his trips to Mar-A- Largo and reckless disregard for the law.
DT’s change to SNAP requirements makes it difficult because I have been trying to get a job however I cannot seem to get either a job interview, or hired for that matter and the 20 hours a week is unfair because I have been trying but it is easier said than done.
I don’t know what I have to do to live a decent life because I have tried to get a job and so far I have had no luck.
