from the moment they said i should ‘feel’ more, i shoulda told them to shut the fuck up.
when they said i needed to be more connected; more in tune with myself. be compassionate and not so cold.
i shoulda told them to go fuck themselves.
but instead: i listened.
& then attempted to be all those things.
but where are these cunts with all the helpful advise now?
offering to hold my hand through the grocery shop as i squint at the lights or shake at the counter? holding me up as i near drop to floor after a car backfires or consoling me as i breakdown in the front seat of the car waiting for the lights to change?
where are these cunts with all the wonderful expectations?
not the fuck here are they!
“i have recieved your academic records.
i will proceed from here.”
That sounds great!
Sounds like a smart move!
That also sounds like what you said at the end of your hour long phone call where you tried to tell Me it was probably ‘better for Me’ to go and get government assistance because this whole process is going to take ‘quite awhile’
*employing extremely sarcastic tone*
The assessment is back. Noted. Added to the pts(d) is mdd. Awesome.
So todays conversation with the almighty ACC, went a little something like this … hit it:
- so, you (meaning ACC – thats, Accident Compensation Corporation) will assist with counselling, right?
You are covered for mental injury, as noted on your new assessment.
We will assist with your recovery from your mental injury.
- does that include practical help … like, transport to and from appointments?
We can assist with more than 80ks worth of travel in a month.
Your own transport, and we can reimburse a percentage.
- and if I don’t have my own transport?
We can look at paying for a bus, possibly.
Where preferable, you should make your own way to and from appointments and we can reimburse a percentage.
- what about something else, like self defence for instance?
No. We won’t help with physical activity.
- what about, art therapy, or something along those lines?
We can assist with the recovery of your mental injury.
- what about helping with future career or job prospects? getting back to work scenarios?
We will assist with the recovery of your mental injury. So, No, not work prospects. We can pay for a Social Worker to assist you with a CV and possibilities for further assistance.
- Oh, Wow. Now that’s helpful.
