Dr Centrelink says I failed the 20 points necessary for them to pay me a Disability Allowance and I can work 15 hours a week. Wow nice of Dr Centrelink to tell me that and its only taken him/her 8 months to decide that. Never mind that I am in hospital 600 kms from home and this is the 4th hospital in 8 months little time to spend working as health comes first. Hard enough at 61 years young and over qualified to even get an interview. Been unemployed for close to 2 years and not a red cent has Centrelink paid me. At times I am lost for words to describe the infernal frustration with those blithering uneducated idiots who work (that is questionable) for that Government Department who have the lives of so many in their hands. Swearing does not help but .... So day 27 and 10 treatments to go, Bowel and Urinary Tract are better behaved these last 9 days now. So I guess I just go through the motions and get on with life in May.
