Growing into Me with Bipolar

Government F*%$k-ups

So I apologize ahead of time, but I just had to f-ing RANT!

So, I’ve been on the waiting list for housing assistance voucher program for like 5 years, and I make just under the limit.  So today I get a letter from them telling me I make 2.5x the limit!  HOW THE FUCK DO THEY GO FROM ‘X’ AMOUNT TO ‘2.5X’ AMOUNT????   I get Social Security Disability and child support only, and I am CLEARLY UNDER THEIR LIMIT, meaning I QUALIFY for a voucher!  But somehow they have decided that I must be getting more than double that and am no longer on the list!!!  How do they go from a number in the mid $20k to a number in the mid $40k?  I am SO ANGRY!!!   Mostly because I am scared, scared I can’t keep living where I am, because I thought it would be temporary and I would get a voucher.  What am I going to do now?  What about the kids?  I can’t take this.  This stresses me out too much, this makes me too scared, terrified.  Which makes me too ANGRY!  And all of this feelings make me feel powerless, out of control.  And that makes me feel like giving up, because fighting seems so pointless.  I will try to fight inside the means they allow.  But if I don’t prove that I don’t make all that tons of money, I will only have left the option of giving up, giving in, being left powerless to control my own life, my own fate, except of course for one option…which is not possible now, so, (unfortunately?) no worries on that.  WHY CAN’T PEOPLE JUST DO THEIR JOBS, AND DO THEM RIGHT?  WHY DO PEOPLE ALWAYS THINK ITS OK TO BE LAZY, TO SLACK OFF, TO NOT DOUBLE CHECK, BUT JUST SLAP THE PAPER RANDOMLY, WHEN THEIR FAILURE TO DO THEIR JOB RIGHT AFFECTS PEOPLE’S LIVES, AFFECTS IF PEOPLE ARE HOMELESS OR NOT?? WHY CANT PEOPLE JUST DO WHAT THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO, WHAT THEY GET PAID FOR IN THE FIRST PLACE???  THIS IS WHY I F*&^KING HATE PEOPLE!!! THIS IS WHY I F*&^KING HATE LIFE!!

Killing Me Softly: Emotional & Psychological Abuse

Now that physical abuse is in the limelight and punishable by law, abusers have resorted to more insidious forms of control. The effects are just as destructive, more enduring, and more difficult to overcome.

Seachy Waffles On. A chronic way of life!

The ups and downs of 21st Century life as a disabled dad. This is an honest account of my successes and failures and what I have learnt from them. How my disability has shaped my future, my neverending journey towards acceptance and a little bit of sarcasm and humour along the way. I have been battling Chronic Pain for 14 years and have made small steps towards living life again. I'm not after sympathy or pity, but I hope to encourage others and get a few words of encouragement myself along the way. Life is for living, pain or not make the most of things!
