The year 2011 was a fairly decent year for me – relatively speaking, that is. Let us count the ways:

  • I did not hear of any new law(s) that took away more rights of injured workers;
  • I only had to write 6 or 7 complaint letters
  • I only had to attend the ACCS for concilliation on two matters
  • My requested surgery was only delayed by two months
  • My 3d Medical Panel assessment for permanent impairment rating was only suspended
  • I only had to increase my anti-depressive medication
  • I only had to increase my pain medication
  • I received help from a very good pain specialist
  • I only have severe end stage osteoarthritis and complete rotator cuff failure and only need a total reverse shoulder prosthesis, it’s not like I am dying or anything
  • I only had a heart attack and serious cardiac failure during my last, recent surgery but am recovering well
  • I finally started this blog (on 19 August 2011) and it’s going very well!
  • and I adopted Bobby, my boy eclectus parrot

Still, I hope that 2012 will be a better year for me, and – undoubtedly- for all of you (injured workers) too!

Thank you all for being part of the journey!!! Happy New Year!!!


To all who work for workcover insurance companies….


Given that a new fresh year is about to start, how about some fresh new ideas for improvements, inclusions to this blog? What would you like to see on this blog?

So far I am planning the following:

  • some serious national petitions and letters which will be powered on change.org and disseminated via twitter and facebook + begging for your signature in a link under each post (!)
  • more visibility of the blog, including through work behind the scenes on search engine optimisation and, with a bit of luck, through the media (we’re working on it)
  • sharing of more real stories and “paper” evidence (documents)
  • …. [here is where you can add your ideas/wishes]

What would you like to see on this blog? Don’t be shy! All and any ideas welcome!

  1. Happy New Year mate….

    I was thinking for next year if you could start a new petition and at the end of every new post have a link to it so it can be possible to add to it all year through. Would this be possible? I think it would be great
