So normally on Facebook I’m all smiley, after all its “friends” people I know and so I don’t bang on about the wrongs of assessments for welfare.
Today I did post, I told the truth and I will see if anyone cares enough to post.

Here it is!

People are today protesting against Maximus, a company that has an atrocious record and yet will now be carrying out assessments to see if people are fit for work.
Yes it has to be done, but currently the system is flawed and unfair, 100 people with mental health every day have their welfare stopped because the assessments aren’t capable of fairly assessing them.
Can you lift one arm above your head? is one question, can you lift a carton of milk? This has nothing to do with if you are fit for work, I have been scored zero points twice and it is unbelievable, okay maybe I would fall short but zero? Then after many months of restricted money, a phone call from them where they finally realise that the meds I take give me the points alone, it causes stress, that causes more pain.
People have committed suicide because of this, people have died because they couldn’t afford to eat, this needs to stop!
I know your wages pay for us, but believe me I would rather work, I miss the social interaction because I get no visitors, I miss working and being productive and being in pain 24/7 is much harder than anything I have ever done before.
Stand up for those who are vulnerable, make your voice heard, I know many of you are Christians and I know that you believe in a messiah who cared for people who were in need, those that society shunned, well it’s happening right now all around you, use your vote this year wisely, sign petitions that help the sick and the poor.
I know this is a long post, I know it’s controversial but it’s very scary and it would be nice to know that people are at least on our side!

Until next time!
