I am not sure if this is the right place but I want my story heard and some advice. I was injured in Oct. 11, 1999. I did as my boss showed and told me how to due my job. I did was I was showed. I worked 49 to 60+ hours. Until the day I got hurt I moved a barrel of glue weighing 400 pounds I was unaware that it weighed that much. I popped a disc out in my neck and lower back my arm was three size as it normally would I could barely walk. They sent me home after I tried to work. I had to drive myself to the emergency room. I weighed 139 at the time and I was 37 years old with three kids, I have been struggled for 10 years. I have been on workers comp for here and there for 10 years. I have had to move 8 times, by not receiving a check. I didnt ask to be hurt. I have had one surgery in 2001 and my neck surgery in 2008 but did they approve of it no way so I had to have medicare pay for it I only had two options I have the surgery now or I wait until AIG and comp approve of it which I had been waiting for 4 years for the approval the surgeon told my if I take a chance on waiting any longer I would paralyzed. I could not use my right arm. It was numb my right leg is also numb. Now I am 47 and weigh over 200 lbs. Depressed and on all kinds of medication. Pain killers I went to school through VESID I was good I learned alot. I could get a part time job in a office. Today I can remember where I am going, I am losing all my memory due to the drugs. I can not remember what I even learned. I have been close to ending it all. Thank you AIG and Workers Comp. You took my self worth away. Some day I hope they would understand.

AIG is well known to promote delays.
Tell your Attorney to just sue AIG. For unreasonable delays.

Please don't give up, you have 3 children whom wouldn't know what to do without you. In October of last year I was in so much pain, wasn't sleeping or eating and so depressed that I checked myself into a psych ward where I remained for 3 days. There are people who can help you. I haven't been here much lately due to some things that have happened recently but it sounds as if you are extremely depressed as well as in a great deal of pain. Please seek help for the depression if you haven't already.
Please come here as often as you can, we are like a family here, we help each other when needed, you can confide in us and while we may not have all the answers it is nice to talk to people who understand what you are going through.
I wish you the best of luck sweetie and hope to get to know you better.

Prayers are going up for you lu...hang in there, your little ones deserve to have a mom for many years to come!

Hi Lu>>>>> I am so sorry you are going through this. No person deserves to be treated like this. Everyone here understands and we all could tell you how many have gone from being hard workers to barely surviving. My prayers will go up for you and I am hoping you can get some emotional help. The depression makes everything so much harder. Also I feel an attorney is needed at this point. I'm not good with computers but if you can move your post to the IW section I think you might get more legal help. Some with alot of knowledge don't visit this part. In this section you will get all the love and support that's needed.
Best of luck.
