DSHS Sucks

Yesterday I was informed by DSHS that I have to immediately cash in my retirement savings and, until it is spent, I will lose my Medicaid benefits. That means all the money I saved the ten years I worked for the University of Washington will go to the nursing home as rent until my benefits are reinstated. This also means that not only will I not have the money I was counting on to start my life over (ie. get a place to live and furnish it) but I will lose my seniority at the University so the likelihood of being re-employed there again is diminished. Suffice it to say I am not a happy camper. I have instructed my social worker to get me the hell out of here now.
