A health professional in excruciating pain after a workplace injury, signed off work by her doctor, was assessed as fit for work. She says, “I cannot carry shopping bags. I can’t stand for long and cook, so I sometimes buy ready meals. I told them this and they said ‘Oh, because you can put things in the microwave, you can go to work.’ For three months, I didn’t have any money at all. I was asking for help from friends, but the worst thing is I couldn’t give my two children anything during the holidays. I was so proud to work: I went to school, university, I have studied. Now the kids are crying for you and it makes you so upset.”
