Im annoyed.. this is the latest letter (below) Ive got over my application for the gov heating and cooling rebate for those who have issues with temperatures. The gov is discriminating against our illness. Ive gone actually unconcscious at times when it gets too warm.. so that could happen and what if I didnt come too again in the heat? I could end up dead. I can only handle a very small range of temp without it causing me issues and making me illner or making me completely pass out. and then I run up MASSIVE electricity bills in the cooler weather over $500 per month some months (as then I struggle to keep warm and putting jumpers on dont help me much as I seem need outside warmth source if Im crashing). Here's the gov letter to me. Im so fed up over gov discrimination over ME/CFS.. fed up that even POTS isnt being recognised either. (note those who have got ME/CFS and POTS in some other states of Australia are able to qualify for heating and cooling rebates.... my state is known as the worst Aussie state for disability things). Im constantly battling with the gov to get my needs equally met as those with other illnessses do. The SA ME/CFS society is run by those with this illness who are too unwell themselves to start fighting against the goverment biased towards our illness, this is one thing we need an org here to be fighting to change (maybe this could take this up on an Australian ME/CFS society level?? or do I complain to the Federal Gov over my states gov.. I dont know how to successfully fight the obvious discrimination here. Im at risk with heat and should have access to this electrical rebate concession and Im sure Im not the only ME/POTS patient to be in this situation. (maybe we need to find a lawyer and do a group discrimination case against the gov.. I cant keep fighting everything alone). Did the "independant experts" doing the review even know anything about ME and POTS? How do I fight the discrimation happening at gov state level?
