So I received this letter this morning for which I was declined disability insurance on my group plan. I have been unable to work since January of this year. I was paid once by the insurance company for being off work because of a septoplasty surgery to fix my deviated septum. And then, they washed their hands clean of me.
I read this letter this morning and I was literally livid with anger. I have to fight not only to be well, but I have to pay out of pocket to do so because Canada will not provide real treatment for Lyme disease or co-infections. On top of that, guess where I worked? At an Insurance office!!!! That specialized in disability insurance! And this was my group plan that is declining me…what a joke that is!!
I literally cried reading their definition of disability…are you kidding me? What do they think I do all day???? I am so furious that I don’t even know what to say or do. I feel like I can’t let this be….this is so WRONG.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I am to the point where I just want awareness and need these companies to be held accountable for this. It is stressful enough trying to get well and paying out of pocket without an income!! And they can’t even give me a percentage of my pay for when I truly need it ….SOOOOO FU*KING ANGRY!!!!!!!
Does all of Canada have to get Lyme Disease or a co-infection before we can actually be recognized as a “real” illness? Honestly…WTF!!!
