  1. I can only say A bit about section 8 (HUD)- first follow all rules, that section 8 ask’s from you? we are very fortunate to have section 8. We would not be human, if we didn’t search for what we can or can’t have from section 8′ but being legal, and fallowing what section 8 want’s- is the main thing to follow.If you have to say no you can not live with me because my section 8 will not permit it; I would say no. ask your worker for advise that is what they do for work.Make sure to have free Disability Legal attorney, because they weed out thing’s we might not know of. Besides all the red tape is Life and we must think of others but ourselves first.


  2. Reblogged this on The Sick and the Dating and commented:
    This is something that I was trying to explain to people who don’t receive disability, but it’s something that’s invaluable to know if you DO receive disability or anticipate that you will be receiving it in the near future in the U.S. as well (as I hope to be by next year, dammit). Thank you, as always, sleepygirl.
