Why isn't social security disability insurance enough to live on?

She asked me what I think is enough to live on.

I said...

Well first of all....

Here in Fayetteville Arkansas, I can get a decent apartment in the safer, better part of town, which by the way is a necessity for most people with my kind of a disability...
I can get it for $410 a month.

Water and electricity here combined is about $160 a month....
More like $200 or $250 a month if I actually dare be comfortable.

I have the right to communication, and entertainment.
A jail cell is not a necessity.

TV, internet and phone is about
$250 or $300 a month....
After all promotional deals are expired.


Unless I plan on eating out of a dog bowl..
And sleep on the floor..
I have furniture financing..
That's at least $50 a month...

I can take forever to pay it off..I don't care personally.


And I have to eat...
That's $300 for myself.

So we're talking at least $2500 a month.

And thats here in Arkansas.

That's living expenses...riding the public bus.
