Mental health.. First off let me say that since world War II, our society and government have created such a social stigma against mental health that coming here is almost a joke. I have been waiting for five years now to receive my disability benifits for physical and mental disorders. While I'm not as bad as some....I find it difficult to continue as I am right now... for the last 6 years I have been gainfully employed..until last month. I was let go because I can no longer perform my duties....I am going to turn 31 in 22 days and can no longer work because I suffer from very painful spinal stenosis.. my employer claims that this was due to work place misconduct and subsequently termanated me and is denying me even the unemployment I have paid into... I am on the verge of losing my home, car and lively hood because...well let's face it, no matter what the news tells, us the job market is really shitty right now...I was making $50,000 a year without having finished my associates..and I'll be lucky now to find a part time that I can actually work that will even make a tenth of that. Don't get me wrong this just another hurdle in the game of life... I will find away I always do...but i feel consumed by the negativity of world... I am tired of giving this country and the people who run it my services.. we've bailed them out, conformed to new regulations and have adapted to there needs... but when the time comes for them to hold up there end of the deal...they tell the American people "FUCK YOU". it is certain that I will lose everything that I have worked for..I will over come and find my way, but one must ask themselves how many times is to much?..
