My names shannon 44 years old had constant chronic back pain for last 20 years, have been a cabbie for last 10 years and now for the last couple years im only working 2-3 day fornight because i just cant sit or stand for long periods anymore. Tryed everything and all sorts of medication also now have really bad umbilical hernia due to overdosing on codeine as the Docter at the time would not give me any pain killers..
Last 5 years ive had utter hell with job providers, i have to see them as im earning bugger all and have to rely on centerlink... They dont understand people with chronic conditions and have been cut off numerous times for things like being in bed because ive been in agony and havent looked for work..they havent gotten me a interveiw in 5 years and these people are supposed to be disability mobs.
Im getting to the point off quitting my job as it kills me sitting in the car but how do other people handle these mobs , ive tryed disability but like everyone else has been denied..
getting sick of wasting my time going to someone that 100% isnt going to help me....
