Recently diagnosed with PTSD, I push forward with those who fight beside me, otherwise I would be lost and completely without hope
The stigma attached to the unemployed runs deep in society. If you’re out of work then you are made to feel worthless, a drain on society. Terms like “dole bludger” are often smeared across the headlines, millions of people essentially tarred with the same brush.
As a result my health issues are disregarded because of a biased attitude that insinuates a kind of “guilt” requiring that you lodge your “proof” or medical “evidence” in order to validate your barriers to work and access financial support.
