I’m part of a middle-class, middle income, family who can’t seem to get a handle on their poverty….while also being told that we’re living well.
We’re in the middle. We make too much to qualify for assistance, and not enough to eat regularly.
We need a second income, but we wouldn’t even break even on the cost if I went to work.
This is what it’s like. This is me, in the middle.
I’m posting things here that I’m too ashamed to admit even to my closest friends and family. Or things that have caused people who call themselves my friends to try to shame me for. Or just things that piss me off or make me happy.
