Former street homeless in Schaumburg, IL, now homeless again, trying to survive on $200/month food stamps. On a dozen waiting lists for housing, had over a dozen addresses in the past decade, had a couple car crashes (one with concussion, one with broken ankle), haven't worked in 2+ years, dropped out of college 2-3 times, depending on how you count (couple years ago most recently), been denied twice for disability, seeing a doctor & therapist. Bus trip to city: $1.75 PACE bus to City, $2.25 on CTA, 25 cents for 1st transfer, 2nd transfer free. Home is $2.25 on train, 25 cent transfer, 2nd transfer free (CTA works on PACE, but PACE does not work on CTA. Go figure.) Or $5.75 for a 1 day/ 24 hour bus card for CTA, which will not work on PACE. Basically $5 gets me most of a bus ride. I have belongings in storage, had some camping gear & tent in the woods, till it was found & tossed. Still have hope, unlike so many other homeless people. I know a half dozen other homeless people within 5 miles, and half of us have laptops. Get over the stereotypes. There, life story in 5 minutes or less. What do I win? Lofty goal, I know, but had no idea what else to put, besides the default. Every little bit helps. Thanks. If every gamer I know could donate $5, I'd be set for a while. I need $200 a month just for storage and a bus ride for therapy, not to mention that food stamps won't buy tampons.
