Cause there's nothing I want more than to grow my own food, and in Guyana....that's more than possible. I walk down the streets and pick bananas and mangoes off of trees  that line the roadside. The birds and the animals eat them, and children playing in the street use the green mangoes to play cricket. 
For a lot of my childhood we were very well off, rich even. But my mother still grew her own veggies in the garden downstairs, we had all kinds of fruit trees in our backyards, we had our own chickens and our own eggs, our neighbors had cows and that's where we got our milk. 

Frikken loved that life. I wish I could eat real food again. When I go to the grocery store I tell my mom, don't buy pick up apples for me because apples ain't pose to shine.  
 YAS!!!!!!!!LOL

My dad is an engineer and we didn't grow up poor, but my parents were raised poor so some of these things they sort of passed on.

None of that stuff about food and food stamps I can relate to, but the money vs poor mentality is kinda applies to me. I was better at saving when I was little because they MADE us save.

as a kid I use to ask my mom for stuff... little things... and she would always say ... "No" 
like always , right. .. 

So I just stopped asking cause I knew what the answer would be.

So I've pretty much built my life around the idea that I will never have to ask anybody for anything.
I dont want any gifts for xmas... or bday or anyday. ... I even talk myself out of insignificant stuff.
I can say that it has ruined (not insanely) some of my relationships also. Like when I was with an x of mind I never asked her for anything... and she would ask me things like

"what do you want from me?" And I'm like ... " I dont know.. nothing really" 
I can imagine how that would be frustrating to deal with

All because of my super modest upbringing

All the fruit here swells and itches my mouth..I can only eat fruit in the can. When I go back home 1st thing after getting off the plane is: WHERE IS THE PERSON WIT THE PINEAPPLES STAT!!
 
I grew up poor but didnt know it. We thought we were well off becos we went to catholic school and paid tuition...We still couldn't have anything. Juice was like gold in my house. My mom would dilute the gallon half way with waterStern Smile.

this is bringing back memories.
 
I grew up in the countryside and had no idea that I was broke. it was what it was.
 
We grew veggies, fruits etc. Chickens and pigs alladat.
 
Our breakfast was pure starches and you would be full like a mug til late afternoon.
 
Xmas time a pig was going to meet its maker.Stern Smile
