Good dental care is always important, but especially so if you have arthritis. They recommend keeping your mouth clean, quoting Michael F. Roizen, MD, chief wellness officer of the Institute of Wellness at the Cleveland Clinic as saying "Flossing regularly can make your real age as much as 6. So how can you engage in brushing with arthritic hands?
When my story did the viral thing and I ended up in the media talking about how I and others are treated by WINZ, a lot of politicians were suddenly very interested in what I had to say as if it was anything new. A lot of people got in touch with me to share their own WINZ horror stories.
She was hoping to collect and collate all of the anecdotal evidence about the systemic failure and bullying culture at WINZ, and use this as data to press for change. Not long after that, Sue made way for Carmel Supuloni.
I have sent several enquries to Carmel sinceand none of them have been adequately answered.
I feel extremely bad about it, because I encouraged vulnerable and disenfranchised people to give up their stories for this cause, so it was my name on the line. And as far as I know, none of those people have ever received a response.
So it was just another time when they and their extremely difficult concerns were not acknowledged. I recognise that Labour was in opposition and as such had limited capacity to push through any real change.
Not if Labour commit to them, or even some of them. That scares and disappoints me. You have a massive opportunity here. So many continue to live under a system that treats us like criminals and demands that we constantly prove otherwise. As well as visiting my doctor and filling out a bunch of forms, I need to have a phone appointment with them.
So… nothing to do with how they can help me. Nothing to do with any questions I have. Any time I try to bring up the issue with treating sick and disabled people the same as unemployed people, I will get a bunch of people yelling at me that I should be on the Supported Living Payment.
The SLP is generally designed for people who have longterm disabilities very interested to see if Labour changes thisand it is extremely difficult to get.
I have applied, and I was turned down. I was informed that I could contest the decision, which would result in my being sent to a WINZ-selected doctor for a second opinion.
Which means that, every three months, my doctor has to provide another certificate that says the same thing. Yes, she is trying to get better.
And I, and so many New Zealanders, have been burned too many times before. Time to step up and stand beside our most vulnerable.
