"Ten Days Of Rain"

"What A Start To The New Year"

Ten days ago I did my back in and was refused treatment by my doctor because I had no money.
Because of my bad back I could not make a social security meeting so they have stopped my benefit money for the next two weeks so I starve again.
Then I had to give up my home because I couldn't afford to eat as the rent is so high.
Then I had to put all my gear in storage which wiped me out.
Then the police, in a deliberate act of harrassment, stole the van I was traveling in and impounded it with no reason given for even stopping me.
Then I badly twisted my ankle which left me needing the same treatment as my back, but with no way to get the prescription I needed.
Because of my ankle problem I lost the job I was supposed to do at the weekend.

And finally,

my father died yesterday.

So in all, it's been a pretty shitty ten days!!!


Sometimes down....But never out ;)

    1. No chance of getting the van back, they will make sure of that but I couldn't give a toss anyhoo as they want me to be pissed off as I sit here laughing at them and their petty tricks & stunts.

  9. Once they have it in for you in this island they do not give a shit, sorry to hear about your dad, wish there was something I could do, but we are also paying crazy rent for a shoe box, on one wage of zero hours, so our pension and disablement also go towards the rent etc or we would not eat,lol, do not smoke, do not drink and at this rate a lot of people will be starving in the island. It piddles me off that I am not allowed to build on my land, not just to give us a home but also my daughter. Wishing you a better time for the rest of the year, you are not alone, lots of people get picked on, good luck :-)

  11. Wow! Did wonder why the blog was quiet. Sorry to hear of a shitty start to 2014 for you and my condolences for your loss.

  12. I saw this post a few days ago and was so saddened about what is happening :( . Please accept my sympathy for your sad loss. There is a lot of hate in this world judging by the way some of my friends are being treated by ss it would appear the dept is suffering from disability hate and poverty hate right now. I wonder how much longer that will prevail before the twig snaps and hit them in the face eh?

    You have many friends and well-wishers and you help others and we don't forget that.

  13. I had an interesting dream last night, it was nice to have spoken to you Ian.

    Sorry to hear about your Father passing away, and I guess you're feeling pretty low right now. One thing though, Life is beautiful. Never forget that, and try not to be a victim of your own issues with this world. There's a lot of stuff we dislike about it, but let's stop to remind ourselves that life itself is beautiuful.
