Keep calm, because I am back

workcovervictimsdiary

HELLO EVERYONE!

IM FINALLY BACK AFTER MONTHS AND MONTHS, OR WAS IT YEARS AND YEARS!?

I HAD A COUPLE OF LIFE CHANGES THAT TOOK UP MY TIME AND STRENGHT… AND WHICH CHALLENGED MY WILL TO LIVE, REALLY!

ONE BEING A DOWNHILL CHANGE IN MY INJURY, STARTING WITH A VILE INFECTION (SEPSIS) IN MY PROSTHETIC SHOULDER WHICH TOOK A VERY LONG TIME TO CONTROL WITH MANY HOSPITAL STAYS AND ANTIBIOTIC TREATMENTS, FOLLOWED BY ONGOING – DEBILITATING- DISLOCATIONS OF THAT PROSTHETIC IMPLANT – OUCH! LITTLE VERY UNHAPPY..

AND ANOTHER WAS A TERRIBLE PERSONAL EXPERIENCE, WORSE THAN ANYTHING IMAGINABLE, WHICH I AM UNABLE TO SHARE AT THIS STAGE IN MY RECOVERY.

I AM RECOVERING BUT A DAY AT A TIME, AND WITH MANY SETBACKS STILL.

I dont know if I should feel sorry for not being around or feel proud that the blog is going great.

Greetings and thank you so much to everybody who has been here all this time

 

I HOPE I CAN MAKE THINGS RIGHT AGAIN WITH MY BELOVED BLOG FAMILY!

  1. Welcome back and hope all is well with you again and only time will heal they say, long time reader of your site ..Keep up the great work !!!!!

  2. Good to see you’re back onboard!

  3. Welcome back Lisa! It too has been a very long time between visits for me. But I have thought of you & the others I had the joy to meet via your site, often.
    I had to walk away because I didnt even have the strength to fight for myself & reading about everyone else made it worse for me to cope at that time in my life. I had to find a way to breathe outside of my injury & WC. When others have asked about the WC system, I have referred them to this site for help because the system is too strong for just 1 to try to survive against.
    I give thanks to my lawyers who did everything they said they would, my WC Advocate who fought for me when I couldnt & to all WCV’s who share the knowledge so we live to fight another day.
    We can survive,

  4. That’s pretty funny Adam.

    Sad though that they try to pull these stunts.

    My pet insurer just denied a claim.for stifle injuries cause elbow dysplasia was excluded..

    Oops stifle is the knee.

  5. My lawyers were Shine in Melbourne and the insurer is CGU.

    CGU really are funny because they are the most incompetent bunch of jack offs I ever met. Don’t know how they run a billion dollar company.

    Day 1 they send a rejection letter: wrong employer, wrong date, wrong injury, wrong claim…

    Fast forward to court and they instruct the lawyers to claim they approved medical and like expenses “by accident”. Haha idiots.

  6. Awwww you are all so so sweet, and I really appreciate your lovely and encouraging comments. I will never ever give up trying to help any injured worker for the rest of my life, and I have been constantly thinking about my beloved family on this blog. It is really great to see that you are all like-minded and here not just to seek help, but to also help countless others. My workcover case itself is also done and dusted, although, as you know, nothing can fix a permanent serious injury, mine just keeps getting worse (so here is proof that the workcover-referred-to-Green Poultice $$$$ really does not fix your pain, impairment, disability, wounds, and even your workcover system battle scars) it was one of the most horrid experiences of my life and I dont even wish it upon my worst enemy. I am sure I have PTSD just from the workcover experience alone, I still have nighmares about case managers, IME’s etc!

    And, believe it or not I am also still being “hunted” (sued!) for important information that was shared on this blog, years ago!!! Another nasty thing I have to deal with. There are some truly, utterly evil people within the workcover system, and they go after the weak and the vulnerable, as they are trained to do, or, worse, enjoy the hunt (destruction of an injurered worker who dares to stand up a little!)

    Just in the last few days alone I have been contacted by various injured workers with the most unbelievable evil stories, and they shared the EVIDENCE as well. I am still shocked… but not surprised, that the mistreatment of injured workers is apparently still modus operandi and that there is just about nothing one can do.

    I am sorry that I was truly unable to contribute for so long. It really was a matter of surviving myself. I will share my hell over time, all I can say is that I survived an inch with my life, literally. But I am PROUD TO BE A SURVIVOR.

    • I was so excited to see your email today.
      Very sorry to hear that you have had such a battle with your health and glad that you been so strong to keep going thru all the trails and tribulations. To have you back is a blessing for all of us saved by the knowledge you and others have shared. Keep fighting as hard as it is daily.
      This site has really scared them as the truth is being told by many of us, no wonder they still chase you, with as many dirty tricks as usual.
      As for the scars of WC, I can only hope that we all one day heal from such diabolical treatments from CM & the rest. I believe anyone who has been on this journey would definitely be suffering PTSD which is no surprise to all of us chained to the WC Beast.
      kia kaha (stay strong)

      • @MadChef – thank you for your kind comment. I too remember you (and your horrible case) and I hope you are feeling better and off the toad system (or at least minimal dealings with them). It’s just awesome to see you here! Lisa

  7. Welcome back! Even though my workcover experience has been over and done with for years now I still keep my subscription here just in case I can offer any help or advice, or if something reoccurs. Glad to have you back and leading the site once more though, somehow it just wasn’t quite the same with you gone.

  8. That’s such great news. You have been missed. I have referred to the sight since you’d been gone. And I’m really happy that you are back.

  9. Welcome back !!!! I have often worried and wondered if you are ok and i’m sooooo glad you are back. Your blog helped carry me through the most darkest period in my life ( your blog helps so many people) and the infomation you provide was extremely valuable to me. Thank you so much xx

  10. Welcome back Captain.

  11. Wonderful news that you are back

    • @Bunny, my dear dear Bunny, as with WooWoo (and many others I am sure) I got tears in my eyes just seeing your name here and knowing that you are still here. You have been such an asset throughout my absence (and during my presence). I hope that you too are OK (ish)…?

  12. Great to have you back..

  13. Good on you.

    Sounds rough though

  14. This blog may have just kept me sane through my battle with the insurance company. Every question was already asked and answered and truly was more helpful than my own lawyers.

    It’s great to have you back!

    • Hey Adam. Who were your lawyers and who is the insurance Company.

      I am a former lawyer who then saw the other side of the system when I was forced into very early retirement with a psych condition (work caused but don’t expect Workcover or the scum lawyers they used Mullins to ever understand!!).

      This forum makes me feel just how important it is to share information.

      IT can be very lonely when you feel as though you are going in alone with these issues.

  15. Welcome back
