Hi guys!!

Well, things are steadily progressing forward on the mental-health legislative-advocacy front, which is good ;0)  So I’m pretty happy there…

In the meantime, I called the Ohio Benefits Bank yesterday to get help in signing up for Ohio’s medicaid expansion and food assistance…yep.  I was looking at the website whilst talking to the woman on the phone, and saw the word “welfare” and asked her if food stamps were the same thing as welfare. I didn’t know…I’ve never done this before.  She said “welfare” is an outdated term though, and that it’s called the SNAP program now or some such other thing, and that it’s not anything to be ashamed of, which was interesting, because I wasn’t feeling particularly ashamed at all until she mentioned it. Then, I choked up…

Ahh well though right?  I mean, it is what it is, right?  It is, simply, what it is and nothing more…

That’s what I tell myself to keep this head on straight ;0)

Anyways, here’s a goofy video…

Xoxxo,
