I know I've said this before, but... Filling in Disability forms is so god-damn depressing...

I read it from people here too. Somehow they expect them to magically have gotten healthy in a years time. No matter if there currently is no cure.

It's hard to stay cheery whilst sitting there filling in questions like "How come you can't even cook a meal, you lazy shit" and "Oh, you can't even go to the shops can you? I can.. You lazy shit.." and "You can't even stand up for five minutes without stumbling? What the hell, you lazy shit.."

.. I might've paraphrased those questions a little, but as you get further and further down the form, they really start to feel like that.
Fucking misery..
Gaaawd..

As I've said before, I help my service users fill these in. They are mind-numbingly tedious.

You gotta get the devil out of your mind man.

Satan is the accuser (Rev 12:10). Don't believe his lies. He's been defeated.

I just went through the same thing about 6 weeks ago, so many forms, asking the same thing over and over making you so stressed and depressed. When they interviewed me, seems like he went out of his way to make me embarrassed or frustrated so much that I would give up or something. Have to do it all again in 18 months.

Threat : Come to the interview or we'll remove your disability.
Reality : You made it to the interview? You're fine. Get back to work.

Can the union not do anything? I discovered they actually take action over here in my country.

Given the current government, that would be very unlikely.
There are already regular protests about these things, and stuff like "the cost of living has gone through the roof, but you still haven't increased our monthly allowance by a penny"...

Nah, they don't give a crap.

Sorry Jay, but you're wrong there (kind of).

They don't give a crap about us plebs, but they do give a crap about their own pockets and their wealthy chums and the business of making even more money for them all. They care a great deal about that.
