The program now in place, keeps people in a circle of poverty.
I am not passing the bulk or saying that one should NOT
take responsibility for their own life. It the
opposite. I am saying that those we do help are
in a system that encourages this through its due processing
guiltiness. You have to remember. I am not just talking
about those who had tough times. People who are NOT
SICK, who are below poverty level also need help. But
there are different ways to help them than those who are sick
and do not have complete control of there bodies. That's why
they are disabled.
people in American do discriminate against those disabled,
without even knowing it.. And people who have heath
problems, do really want people to treat them differently.
We are still human beings. We just need special tools,
and sometimes a little more time to get the job done because
we do have limitations.
But there are
many people who do have disabilities who are not in wheel
chairs. People think oh, you look just fine. Why what's
wrong? Nothing is wrong with you. There are many
people who are in wheelchairs without the rails. Without the
wheels. Especially those with immune disorders like mine, or
similar disorders where the disability comes from within the
body and not the outside. And I have to agree, that
because of this, it can be hard to say just how bad someone
is. I have known 2 people with my disease who, I never
thought was really bad. Both died before the age of 45.
One of the
friends I saw last, was out eating dinner with a friend who
got her out of the house... She was so excited getting
out, which is something she had stopped doing. Every day
things did become harder for her. She had lupus. She
became ill that very next week. She had a cold. It developed
into phenomena. Next thing I know, she died. Yet
people, I know in the community use to smug about her
condition thinking oh, she is not really sick because she did
not have the physical wheel chair to prove it. She had a
good career. She was not living in poverty, just was headed
that way because she had stopped working. She was not
living off the system, although she finally did file for
disability with social security because of all the health
difficulties, she was no longer able to maintain good work
habits. (I also want people to understand alittle more
about the effects of "connective tissue disease", which is the
main root problem of what I have. (Basically, I am coming
apart at the seams! There are people with proper medial
attention, and less stress from financial burdens, who do live
normal lives. I have a chance if I get the proper help.
That's why I am mad and frustrated).. Before its too late.
Before more damage is done.
young lady is free now of all of it I guess. But we all
are guilty of this. Expecting others to be able to
physically do what we might be able to do on any given day
unless they are confined by a wheel chair. Not
understanding that, gee, there body is different. Just
maybe, their body will not let them... Will not
allow for that. Many people with my condition can do things.
There is no wheel chairs for many of us. But the condition is
unstable, and unless its in a remission state, it makes our
lives like a see saw, changing day to day with no stability in
our lives..... And it IS a serious disability along with
being life threatening if out of control. And there is no
Some days are
good days, while other days its impossible just to get out of
bed. How can one function normally when such is going on
in our lives? One cannot. So many people would rather
drag that person down for not doing differently. Our bodies
are tooooo undependable from one day to the next in our
capabilities. One day the world is clear, and the next you
can't think straight and if someone touches your hand, you
could scream cause it feels so bruised you can't handle the
pain. One day you feel like a movie and a dinner, and the next
you just sleep though cause you are so warn out from the day
prior, it takes days to get over it... How can one function is
this state. There are better examples and better ways to
explain my point I guess, but I could only think of this at
the moment. And of course this statement is for those with
chronic immune illnesses like mine. There are many other
situations like this too, with other diseases.
Government knows just how serious the problems are and have
been avoiding it... Maybe its time they put some
specialist on the board who also has the right to get heard...
I don't really think they pay much attention to the ones they
have in place, or the ones they have in place might not be man
enough to say, gee, that's not my line of medical expertise.
There are doctors who personally can't do that you know.
I thank GOD, I had one who had the guts to look me in the eye,
and say it to me. Maybe if those doctors in capital hill
could be just as professional or to either take charge and
tell the officials I speak the truth in this... that might
help out. I may be off a little here and there, but not
During elections they boast on all the
"other" problems, but NO ONE REALLY SPENT TIME ON THESE
PROBLEMS. Why? It is so messed up, no one really wants to get
in the position of having to have a serious debate!
They are making it worse by not fixing the problems...
I Know that the government has spend much time on Medicaid,
but the plan is faulty with loop wholes and red tape that they
know is broken and they will not FIX those objectives.
this Mr. Governor and Mr. President > FIX THE
PROBLEMS NOW BEFORE MORE AMERICANS IN NEED SUFFER!
Then Talk and I might believe you! I have already
heard everything else.... The proof is in
the pudding my grandmother said... Even she
could have done a better job just using common
LEADER TAKES THE TIME AT SOME POINT TO LISTEN TO
THEIR OWN EMPLOYEES ON THE GROUND FLOOR... YOU HAVE
NOT EVEN LISTEN TO THEM, why would I think you might
even hear me? Even your own employees will tell you
how messed up it is.... WHY DON'T YOU GO PICK A
LOCAL OFFICE AND POP IN & TALK TO ANY OF YOUR OWN
EMPLOYEES (without fear of losing their jobs or
being discriminated after-words!) EVERY ONE OF
THEM I TALKED TO AGREED IT IS discriminatory & has
major problems with processing. "Its not a Fair system whatsoever I
think is what most stated to me". It is mess-up
but its all we have"! My hands are tied!"
These are the comments I PERSONALLY HAVE BEEN TOLD
by YOUR OWN PEOPLE!
Oh, I forgot.... and
this line... > "I have over 300 people I have to
look over. We are so overwhelmed, I have such an
overload of cases, I can't do all the work
myself.... What makes you think you can come first! I don't have the time because we are so
understaffed. I know you need high blood pressure medication
days ago, I am allowed to take up to 10 days to key
it in, so YOU will have to wait like everyone else
until I can put it in the computer! "I said,
in 10 days it starts a new month and I have to
re-qualify all over again. You mean to tell me I
have to then wait another 10 days cause the first of
the month I start all over? ------ They say
"I am sorry"! That's how we are set
up... Look I have 10 days, and I put you
in the computer in a week this last time..... I just have too many clients to
keep up with, the social worker says.....
Hummmm, My goodness
gracious.... now where oh where have I heard that
before... Oh, now I remember... isn't that the same
whining and problems the other case worker said when
that little girl disappeared or died or something
like that a little over a year ago. The one
who was arrested because she didn't do her job, and
something happened to that little girl and we blamed
here... And she said she was case loaded. Oh, that's
right... What am I thinking... That was another
department entirely! I apologize for that
crisscross of thought, just sounded so.... so... so
the same there for a moment....
BOAST ON your quality education PROGRAMS. Yet where is Florida stand compared to other states? I couldn't find those statistics anywhere on your education site.
That's ok... I thought of something else here.
Hey, Here's is an idea? Why not get together with the officials that run these programs.
How about educating
the administration on "Productive Healthcare and Disability"
for the real world! Just a suggestion...
Our president cares so
much about veterans? Then why in gods name are
their still so many homeless veteran out there,
right now, in the USA TODAY, Still
without real proper assistance within your long term
processing? The proofs in the
pudding! A few small P.R. "damage-repair promotions
and news coverage's are NOT GOING TO FOOL THE
CITIZENS AMY MORE. The results of changes will!
SHOW ME THE RESULTS>>>> CAN I get my specialist now
after 18 months of waiting? Will My son lose
his back teeth without finishing the work?
Will I lose my face figure, my jaw, my teeth, and
have more health conditions before you fix my gum
disease? What other condition will be added to
my list, by not having the proper specialist, so I
have a chance for remission, so I can try to work
again! A few more months & my
jaw could locked up, due to lack in medical
attention. I guess in reality of this website, That
situation would make Officials quite happy. I
have to laugh on that one myself, but the situation
can be serious, all jokes aside.
