I hear you. I was recently diagnosed and was self employed and am not allowed to work. i couldn’t anyway. I have medical certificates and have to apply for “job seeker”. I ,tired explain I am not seeking a job but thats what I have to do? Madness.
i too am not eligible for anything by a hairs breadth. I can’t get transport funding as you have to be 100 klms from the specialist and I am 88 klms.
i can’t get a healthcare card as I am not in receipt of Centrelink payments, which I can’t get because my husband works and gets just over the amount allowed.
i have to have supplements which we pay for, meds which we pay for, petrol back and forth (we are rural) blah blah.
applying for all this whilst having daily treatment is a nightmare. I don’t have advice sorry only empathy.
