I know it. A Pride gland larger than the state makes it difficult to ask for help, especially help you don't feel like you've "earned" by being poor enough. I believe you were the one that told me to swallow my pride and take the unemployment. Now I'm returning the favor and telling you to swallow your pride and go to a food bank. I believe Casa de Amigos and the one in downtown Dallas (I forget the name, but it's the big central one, maybe Dallas Food Bank?) don't ask questions or give pity. They give you what you need and send you on your way. Do some research. See which ones will let you keep your pride and which one require proof, grovelling, religion, or give pity. It sucks ass to be in that position, but being able to do it without fielding paperwork and cross examination helps.
