    I live in poverty.  How did I get here?  Chronic illness and single parenthood.  What is it like?  It sucks.  What can I do about it?  Not much at this point.

    I've come to accept the fact

    that I'm poor. I'm okay with it. I don't need much and I've got the basic needs of life met... lots of money tends to turn people into ******** anyway and the last thing I want to be is an *******.
