That's a big compliment. Thank you! My English isn't prefect, but I think it's awesome it enables me to connect to people around the globe on this forum.
It's impressive what you describe about your dad hunting squirrels and raccoons. I can imagine how that affects your basic sense of safety and your relationship with food and work. If you don't mind me asking, do you rely on the food bank to survive? It must have been scary as hell for people in that position they ran out during the pandemic before. Or if that's the backup if you don't have job security. Luckily, I've never been in a position like that, but I too like to have a bit of a food buffer. Not massive. Just a bit.
The situation over here is very different, I think. I feel very privileged I'm on disability over here. That means a roof over my head, food on the table and health insurance. I'm eternally grateful for that. People on social security are in a similar position. Although my income is considered low, I feel stinking rich in the sense that I'm chronically ill and have access to food, clothing, shelter and healthcare. This would have been a very different story in most other countries, many European included. The difference between the states in the US is also quite big, isn't it? If I'd been born over there, I'd been in constant stress about these things, I'm quite sure.
