Same Old - Same Old
The middle of last month, while doing my job, I injured my arm. The numbness in my left hand and the shoulder pain, caused me to report the injury to my supervisor, who immediately (well after filling out the paperwork) drove me to the hospital. I have been off work since then. Last week, or so, I received word that the comp carrier, decided it was NOT a work related injury. Needless to say, I have been without income since 9/16/08, but being independently poor, I will survive!
At least they are paying the medical bills. They have advised that I cannot return to work without doctor's permission, and cannot collect unemployment, because I can't work, SAME SH*#, different day. Don't ya just love the $5/hr bureaucrats?
