It's Like I Can't Win

“I filed for disability for my daughter and of course that takes at least four to six months to even go through.  So once I do that, then a lot of things will change.  They will take my food stamps away so it’s like I can’t win.  They give me the help with her, but at the same time they’re taking food out of my house because I have extra income, because they think that I have more because there’s more money coming in that I don’t need—my food stamps, as much as they give me, which is nowhere near true.”
