"Debater: Politicians, stop wasting taxes and focus on us who have it the hardest"
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"the DEBATE. I live in a hell where I am a prisoner in my own body and the system has left me to my fate. Yet, I am one of those who have been lucky. "
"There is something rotten in our welfare system. I did not know it, but lived my life as anyone, worked and paid taxes. I thought I was protected if something were to happen. Now I'm a part of the statistics, one of the many people you read about in the journalist articles that become utförsäkrade despite severe illness."
"Ehler-Danlos Syndrome(EDS) is a genetic disease as I three years late still didn't know I had. Sure, I was överrörlig, often had pain in the neck and migränattacker. But I didn't understand how it hung together."
"three years ago, it became worse. EDS is an insidious disease in that way, the creeps in one. It attacks the connective tissue and collagen in the body, i.e. the one which holds together the body. So, my body is falling apart piece by piece. My feet are pretty much solved. I have herniated discs and my neck can't hold up my head, I must be naked. And the knee brace. And the wrist rest. It is my armor to over his head a time to be able to touch me. "
"Then I have not even begun to try to explain how evil all of this makes. What a pain, I live on a daily basis more. A blazing, blinding pain. "
"the EDS is a relatively unknown disease. But enough doctor understood that I need to sjukskrivas, if not specifically for EDS, so the symptoms I exhibited. So I got the medical certificate from health care."
"As if life was not hard enough, refused the Insurance to my application for health insurance. They thought I would work. With a body that barely carries me and in constant pain. The employment service did not like it and sent a certificate that I could not work. Social insurance, however, continued to insist that I could have a “custom work that not put a demand on the cognitive ability”. However, they could not provide a concrete proposal for what this would be."
"So here I sit now. I am a single mother to an eight year old boy. I have no money. I have sold everything I have of value to buy food. The anxiety I daily suffer from is not possible to describe. Up until a few weeks ago, I also considered seriously ending my life."
"When did Aftonbladet an article about me and a friend started a fundraiser on Facebook. Strange people then began to send me money. It is the people that keep me alive. Both in concrete terms, for that I thanks to them, have food on the table, but also because it gave me back faith in humanity."
"at the same time it makes me pissed off, it should not have to be like this! We pay one of the world's highest taxes for the system to take care of us when we can't take care of ourselves. But the system does not take care of us. The number of fattigpensionärer is increasing steadily. And we will be utförsäkrade is more than what I could dream about when I went into this nightmare."
"My message to our politicians who are the ones sitting on the power to change this – stop thinking about the OLYMPIC games in Stockholm. Stop wasting tax dollars on hiring communicators, storytellers and influencers to advertise for the local authorities. Stop planning great skrytbyggen in the cities. Stop with everything that is not relevant for the citizens and taxpayers immediate survival.nFokusera of us who have it the hardest in society. We have our hands full with just trying to survive, and your policy of austerity requirements on Insurance is it that pushes us over the edge and finally kill us."
"We want nothing more than to work and be an integral part of the society. When it is not possible, it is in itself already a difficult enough trauma to upset anyone. Please, help us instead.nJag live in a hell where I am a prisoner in my own body, and you spit on me. Yet, I am one of those who have been lucky. I have a network that will help me, I have been given a voice. "
"You've all read" articles on seriously ill people who do not get help. You know that show up periodically. The gaps are even more people who do not get help and do not get any voice. And it scares me more than anything else."
