WSIB a Fraudulent Agency?
I thought I was done with the fighting, the jumping through hoops, and the threats. But now I am faced with an even greater problem. It has been some time since I posted anything about my private life here on this blog, and though I am apprehensive about sharing more I’m going to do it anyways. Perhaps there are other people going through the same thing, and maybe somewhere there is someone that can help.
On October 2nd I posted a story about what was going on in my life at the time with WSIB, and you can see that here. It will give you a little background information leading up to what is happening now.
My medication has been changed numerous times since then, including OXY CONTIN, CODEINE CONTIN, AMYTRIPTILINE, DEMEROL, And LYRICA. Now I am strictly on Morphine, one is a slow release the other a stronger dose for breakthrough pain. Aside from the inherent drowsiness and loss of motor skills that come with this medication there is also the side effects, like constipation and severe cramps. Without going in to too much detail it is not very pleasant. At this level of medication I am still not pain free but it is at a “tolerable” level as long as I am not too active.
Right now my abilities, and my Doctors assessment of my condition concur, I can not sit for more than 10-15 minutes at a time. I can not walk very far or for very long. I cannot do any bending and turning at the same time. My weight restrictions on lifting is not much more than 15 pounds. My ability to concentrate for long periods of time is diminished, and I get “spaced out” at random intervals.
WSIB, knowing this and having seen my Doctors report, is forcing me to enter a 4 week re training program aimed at returning me to work or lose my entitlement to benefits. And though I am told I may appeal this action, before that process is complete I must comply with their decision. Which means that they are forcing me to do something against my Doctors orders, something I am not physically capable of doing in order to continue receiving benefits.
I will concede that there are many cases of fraud that this agency must deal with. But in this case the medical file on record in this case is stacked high and I have piles of medical documentation, tests, and reports to back up what I have said. Yet, they still maintain their position that I am fit for work and all I need is a 4 week course to get trained in a new job and all will be right in their world.
This is our Government at work.
