Decided to write up all the diagnoses I’ve received since 2004. Majority of these came about from differential diagnoses of a few key issues. And it’s even harder when places like @Centrelink say “you can study science, you can work.” #DisabilityRights #exsistenceiseffort
Literally gave Centrelink all my medical files for a decade. I was told I was 2 points from the correct criteria & removed from DSP. It’s been an exhausting battle ever since just to survive day to day. Half of these issues were diagnoses before I went on it in 2009.
The other half were diagnosed after Centrelink wanted more information. Now when I speak to someone about Newstart & they ask about my health I tell them & their reaction is “you should reapply for the DSP”.
