Selfish Whinge - Down Day



Last week I got a new PIP disability form to fill in. 15 written questions describing in detail all the depressing issues that I have to deal with in day to day life.
I struggled through with my usual cheery demeanour, and filled in over 1000 words about how utterly crap things are, and how much I try my best to continue through it all.

Today, my Uncle paid a visit, and he and Mum sat chatting about my poor, poor Aunt, who also has a disability.
Poor poor aunt can only get out of the house every day, and can only travel around to local towns Leigh, Atherton, Bolton, and how she only ever visits the few half a dozen friends, and only ever seems to socialise in the same few cafe's all the time.

And I'm sitting there, listening to this poor poor tale.. and, I'll be honest, every single whinge felt like a fucking dagger.

I grabbed my iPad and left the room, and have spent the rest of the night sitting here in my room, mostly in a semi depressed state.

Today's been a down day...

I hope you get it sorted jay, the appeal board has your back if those assesment wankers give a load of bullcrap.

I'm sure it'll be fine.
Step one is the crappy form. Step two will be the interview, and if they've any sense they'll have a little flag on their computer saying that I already took 'em to a tribunal.
.. should be.. smooooth sailing..!

Fucking PIP. I have to deal with this shit all the time at work. It's all horseshit bells to ring and hoops to jump through.

It'll be better tomorrow.

I have not seen a form for like 15 years I think. But I have been in the hospital for like 5 times since I was in the disability. I spend the end of 2009 to end of 2010 in the hospital living there in various clinics.

I think if you can get as crazy as a door without much trouble they flag you as so. But since my parents started looking after me I have been fine. But it still took me years to recover from the last time. Only a few years ago, the schizofrenic voices have gotten more to the background. It only takes stress.

If the people and their government representatives want more people in a job then they should spend more resources on getting them cured. I barely see attention going to that fact. I wonder how many parents tell their children to become a scientist that finds a cure for ailment x.

I made one hundred of one cent on gamejolt with my skills the last 3 years! No success there yet.

Hopefully all goes well for you jay, I've just returned from the hospital myself that's recommended a 10 week course to address an ailment I've developed. Not been too zoomy off late, might have to change my forum name
