Why am I sick or disabled?
First, I am not naive I know there are people out there who are not as ill as they seem and actively play the system to avoid working. You can read my post Fibro or Faker signs to look for
, for my thoughts on this. Most people who claim sick benefits and PIPs are ill though. Many, with chronic illnesses, have already lost great chunks of their life, independence and dignity. We live in first world countries where the normal is to be productive and earning a living, when you can’t do this, society, however unwittingly, treats you like a second-class citizen. Considering this I feel that somebody who would try to fake this way or life, probably has a degree of mental health illness, anyway. Who would want to fight to become a second-class citizen?
