Ok, well I'm having a huge problem right now. As some of you may know, my mom has very advanced AIDS and while we do get some benefits now (we get 415$ in SSI and our rent is payed by a state organization. The biggest problem i have now is that because my mom now gets SSI, she was dropped from 155$ in foodstamps to 10$ in foodstamps. Added with that, because my mom is getting SSI, they also are raising the amount of rent we are suppose to pay to 30% of what the actual rent is (it comes out to roughly 215$) as you could guess 415 didn't go far when we didn't have to pay this rent but now it seems like we have to choose between a weeks food and the electric. I can't work a lot because i have to go to college and sometimes i have to take care of my mom. So i guess i come to this situation, what in the hell do i do now? I really have no clue as what to do. I feel so hopeless in this situation and was wondering if anyone had any kind of advice?
