The Canadian government has disappointed me on so many personal levels this year. It only makes me sad to be a Canadian.

The American version is not any better.

At least with socialized medical you can see a doctor when you do not have insurance. I had to pay cash for 3 1/2 years while my disability case was being reviewed. It is all just shit. There are too many people that have abused the system so that the rest of us get dicked around. That was the nicest way I could phrase it.

I was told because I was employed when I applied I didn't qualify for disability. My boss was only letting me stay because she is a sweetheart and knew I needed the money while I waited. But I haven't been able to do my job the way I am supposed to for a long time.

I have had no issues with the Canadian Federal disability assistance. I have to say that it was obvious that you would not qualify for a disability income if you were employed at the time of application. I was out of work for two years when my insurance company said it was mandatory that I apply, and I was approved the first time.
You may have to be unemployed for some time before you will qualify for federal assistance due to injury or illness.
Both the federal disability income and our health care system has been nothing but exceptional for me and many others that I have ever talked to who are in the same situation as me.
If it wasn't for social health care system here in Canada, I would not be alive today. We may have to pay a fair bit more in taxes than our American counterparts but I have no issue with paying more if it means everyone is entitled to the health care they deserve. Health care is big business in the US and with big business comes huge profits, those huge profits make it very expensive and unaffordable for a social or universal health care. The American health care system is the most expensive in the entire world, 10 times more expensive than most of the european nations who also have universal health care and 4 times more expensive than the Canadian system. Until the cost of health care is under control in the US, there will always be millions of people who won't get the care they need.
Canada's health care system needs improvement but it works, and every human should be entitled to health care, we live in the greatest country in the world.

I talked to her today and we figured it out. My boss was only really being nice and keeping me on until I got it. I haven't been able to do my job the way I am supposed to for a long time. She is just so nice she could of fired me 2 years ago but we were both hoping the 3 surgeries would of helped me. I am now unemployed and I am going to write an appeal letter today and include my bosses letter and talk to my doctor then apply for medical ei.
