Thanks for highlighting this,i know all about it also. I had a chat with my nurse as im being hounded into work also.I asked...how can i go to work if i have not been to sleep?Health & Safety and all the WARNINGS on all my meds state...''do not drive or operate machinery,will make you drowsy'' yet this is just one of many ailments i have. I have severe insomnia,depression,anxiety with panic attacks which have no triggers,Chronic fatigue syndrome(M.E) being tested for Lupus,IBS,Fibromyalgia,asthma,acid reflux. I said to her the constant hounding of the benefit system is actually making me so very ill and so stressed out.
I have paid thousands into this system so when i get sick i am looked after with prescriptions,appointments etc.During one visit to my doctor,i explained how my rheumi yawned throughout n seemed not to listen to me at all,her answer was ''go private £120 fr half an hour consultation''. I said nothing as i was so angry at her. Ive paid thousands into this system...i didnt ask to be sick.
So now im fighting to get benefits as they want me back in work.I tell them i want to work,have money,friends,holidays..do you think i want to live like this?
Our government are disgusting.They can spend all our taxes on themselves to buy new homes,pools,meals out,holidays without anyone telling them this is wrong until they all got caught.The should go to jail for what they all did and for many years.Yet the sick are being discriminated against.DISGUSTING!!
I have my human rights.If need be i will go to court if i am sick as i am not being told to ''work'' when some days i can not get out of bed due to pain. The UK government are a joke and hopefully 'someone' will help us.I paid into this system since leaving school where the next day i started work.I was never sick before hardly had time off.Yet my neighbour is able to go to the pub daily,sit on her step drinking...yet i carnt afford this? Whats fair in this?
You are so right about God. Our government are like dictators and are vile and deceitful. Maybe copy all the responses off here and send it to them?
I am at my wits end with worry.I am existing not living and on top have all this to worry about.
Also let me tell you a short story.......
A man aged 43 got diagnosed with Leukimia.He worked all his life never being ill.Before the diagnosis his doctor told him he had a nervous breakdown until they did tests to find out it was actually leukimia.He went through years off treatment,chemo,bone marrow transplant and was told he was in remission.He got NO help from the benefit system only the basic income support.He even had to pay for his own prescriptions.The day he went back to be cleared of his Leukimia he was told he had weeks to live.All through this now aged 49 he fought to get benefits.Aged 49 he died with his family around him on Sunday 12 July 1992. On monday 13th July his wife received a letter saying that finally he HAD got the benefits.His wife called them crying as he had died the day before and how she had struggled with no money.
This man was my Dad. He had paid into the system and they didnt care as now we know THEY were filling their own pockets with OUR money.
So government....lets hope what goes round comes around because you are disgusting people who treat the sick digracefully!!
I am still here,just been on new meds so unable to function like i used to.I will pop back,just know im thinking of you all and hoping you are keeping on keeping on.xxxxxxx
