Well, that settles it.

My beloved honey was just fired from his mid-level job that was our only real source of income. I have not worked in 7 years now due to all kinds of physical and mental issues, and now he is also unemployed. There was no warning about this, as his position seemed like it was too necessary. Joke's on us! The irony is that I was actually trying to get help. Help... what a joke in this climate. We are facing a real chance of seeing a Mad Max-style scenario. People like me are doomed. Hold your loved ones close. Stay safe. You younger folks hang in there. Looks like you will be inheriting this mess a lot sooner than you may have thought.

5. You mean from the Federal Government?

The one run by psychopaths? The one that is being hit with applications from the majority of the population? Well, he is going to be doing that. However, he will be much better off if I remove myself from the equation. After a lifetime of failure, my presence would only be an undue burden. I have nothing left. He has a future. I now doubt I ever did...

6. I'll bet he doesn't feel that way. He might need you.

You have value, no matter how bad things may seem. Talk to someone? You have a future, too.

7. Last time I collected benefits, it was based on my earnings. Not ...

on the members in my household.

Stay living right where you are. Your Honey needs you too.
