Notes

  • my sister and her kids returned to Canada first thing this morning
  • got a big stack of letters from DHHS this afternoon, on letter saying I don’t qualify for MaineCare and two others asking me to select and register with MaineCare a primary care physician for myself and Little Bear – didn’t receive those letters for the other two boys
  • also received a letter stating that in order to keep SNAP, I need to work no less than 30 per week unless I have a dependent that requires my direct care (for normal children to count, they need to be 6 or under), so now I need to find out why when all three of the boys are on file as special needs
    • Tuxedo Cat was a recipient of SSI until my ex joined the Army, his condition and needs haven’t changed since then – so unless they don’t consider this “incapacitated” he alone should qualify me for the waiver
    • no idea when the details of these requirements changed
    • I may need to get a medical statement from Acadia about my status
      • when I told Dad about all this, his immediate response was that I can barely take care of myself and if I was able to work 30 hours a week I wouldn’t need the damn food stamps in the first place
