I get AISH, once a month. Now with the corvid virus , I have suddenly been forced to beg and borrow and plead for help from every source. I have no family, no kids, it’s just me.
I have a weak immune system so when this corvid came to light , I had to take loans out to ensure my home and health was taken care of, it wasn’t much but a $450 loan from a loan place sure adds to an already depleted budget. I figured the government would care about there people. I thought the government would help us all out equally. No surprise when it comes to light that us low income people literally got the brown end of the stick. MAY we have to wait to get any help but if you have family, kids, work you get the help you need. But us AISH and welfare cases get nothing. $450 I had to borrow to make sure I can survive this crisis. I can’t access food banks or soup kitchens … not in this crisis. I can’t take the risk of getting sick, I can’t. So basically , because I am a single person , I mean nothing to the government. They won’t give us our AISH early, they won’t help in any manner till May. That’s great.
My heart is broken and my confidence in the government is gone. It wasn’t my choice to be unable to have kids, it wasn’t my choice to be on AISH, I didn’t choose what happened to me. I didn’t get that chance to be normal. And now I have to pay for it in the worst possible way
