Thank you – and thank you for getting back to me so quickly I dont’ feel as frightened when I know what is happening. It does appear though that my previous complaints have caused a lot of resentment with some officers which is really sad. I never make them to cause trouble, I make them because I know there are a lot of people, perhaps with stress disorders like mine, that can’t make them and how will officers understand who do it wrong.
I’m a good person Mike, I don’t hurt people they hurt me and the idea I have been offered ‘professional’ health care and rehabilitation and refused it is absolutely ludicrous. Crying now – I don’t want to spend my life fighting for the care I am entitled to and need – for me and others – however because I am a good person and care more about other people than myself I don’t act on the suicidal hell in my head – I do my best to make a difference in the world using the knowledge I have acquired and the intelligence I was given. I tried for so many years to heal myself, it didn’t work, my dysfunction got worse not better – of course that was severely aggravated by my unstable living situation – and since my kids left home unsafe living situations.
I think I’ve worked out where the corruption in ACC and mental health is – its not only about being denied services – its more about being denied a professional treatment and rehabilitation process. Also the doctors who have backed up ACC and mental health I barely knew and were not qualified to make comment. The people who were are Dr Alan Doris, Jenny Kirby, Glenda van der ven Long (Occupational Therapist) and mental health worker Donna – those people I worked with, they were professional and used a professional process. Particularly the OT, they will tell you how hard I worked to overcome my phobias created by the sexual abuse, not guilty verdict and ongoing neglect and trauma. They were all opposed to ACC removing my care in 2009.
Also ACC offering me care at Ashburn Hall, which I begged for years ago but was refused, in isolation to a comprehensive rehabilitation programme in my community – based on the Whare Tapa Wha model is not professional and never going to work. I can barely leave town, couldn’t go to my uncle’s funeral (which I am very upset about) and recently went to visit my daughter and sister in Whakatane which was the first time since I was raped, I have chosen to go away, rather than been expected to by a friend or relative. ACC knew I had serious issues with getting to Dunedin, they are supposed to accommodate those – they refused, the woman they have got as my case manager is not a health professional, she doesn’t know the law and she doesn’t follow professional processes – especially in the area of disability (refer the NZ Disability Strategy which I am currently making a submission on).
I’m going on sorry.
