The people at the hospital suggested that I go on social assistance temporarily and I thought that might be a good idea, it would give me a bit of a break and allow me to get my feet on the ground again. But what ended up being temporary is now been 15, 16 years and the past couple of years I have just been trying to get off social assistance, which is very difficult. I think that the worst thing about it is the isolation and probably the loneliness. It’s very lonely ’cause you don’t really have people to talk to. You’re either busy with your kids or at work. And the stigma too… and asking for help when you’re on social assistance, people kind of look at you like you did something wrong to get yourself in this situation.
