I will not starve!

I got my food supplement back.  I will not starve.  That also means that, going forward, I only have a $200ish dollar hole per month to fill.  I actually got my food supplement back retroactively but, unfortunately, I cannot go back in time and use food money to buy the food that's already been bought so the money lost from having to buy that out of savings stays lost.  (It just means that going forward, for example, if I can convince someone with a membership to take me to a buy-in-bulk store I can actually afford to buy in bulk.)

It also finally changes that calculation that I can't stop making.  Instead of needing to find $4,800 a year to cope with the new normal I have to find $2,400.

Which ... still seems hopeless.  I don't even know where I'm going to get (or if I'm going to get) the $650ish for taxes next month.

But at least I won't starve.
