This is a plea for America to finally realize the shape of their country. My name is Jason C Spurlock and I am a unemployed worker because of walmart. I have a EEOC case going against them because of the discrimination I faced. I have no insurance and I am now aware that soon I will most likely die because I was prescribed a wheelchair through their workmen comp, but their Shift Manager at the store I worked for had me illegally suspended. There IS NO SAFETY NET.

I have tried to get walmart to work on giving me my job back so I could keep getting medical help, but as of now nothing is working out. I have been trying to figure out how to get a wheel chair because that is the process I was in before they illegally suspended me from work and forced me to finish the ADA process to cover their Management action. Mine was a On the Job injury.  

I have pleaded with the EEOC to do something, but everything keeps stalling. I have NO MONEY, I no way of getting around my town to do normal daily stuff because of the fact I have no wheel chair which I was prescribed. I have been trying to get social security, but even now that is taking me forever and I worry each day on it. I am most likely going to have a heart attack soon and not be able to pay my medical bills.

If I am forced to go into the hospital I will be a un-insurance American. When I was paying for insurance and wasn't sick I paid all my bills to keep it, but the company put me on UNPAID MEDICAL LEAVE. Now I am on unpaid medical leave for 1 year. I fear everyday of my life right now because my pain is still there. I have nerve damage in the right side of my sciatic nerve area due to a on the job injury. I am not suppose to be walking, but after I was illegally suspended from walmart I was forced to walk with a cane everywhere I go.

It is putting stress on my heart and I can feel it everyday, but I won't go to the ER or to a doctor and because I do not have the money. I am living with pain and one day I will be in to much pain that I either die on the spot not being able to get to my car if I am out buying groceries or I will suffer a heart attack that lends me into the hospital and I will not be able to pay my bill. I have no way to pay any bill as it is because right now without disability I have no insurance and right now I do not know if I'm going to be denied or accepted or how long it takes.

I have applied for it, but I do not have anything. I look at myself as a ticketing time bomb waiting to expire. Who has the fill the bill will be you the tax payers no matter what. Our system of government does not have a safety net for people like me. Instead we are left in fear that we will die before we get any form of help. I know my words will most likely mean nothing here because my injury needed a MRI which I can not afford. It would have shown what nerves were damaged. A doctor can not see my injury because it is the nerve system of the body, but it has cost me everything.

I can not see a doctor to get pain medicine because I can not afford the bill. I do not know what to do and I live with the depression each day knowing my life is numbered. Last time I went to the library to try and take my mind off of it I could barely get there by myself. All I wanted to do was check out some books, but I had to rest on the bench. I could barely breath. When I got home I was so tired that I clasped on the floor not even making it. I laid there cured up praying that the pain would stop and my breathing would return to normal till I passed out. That is why I am a ticketing time bomb because I know my health is going to give out soon, but I can not go see a doctor because I HAVE NO MONEY OR INCOME.

I know I shouldn't be walking at all, but what am I suppose to do? If I stay in the house I can not get out to get anything. I then get depressed and have to fight off the fear of when I'm going to end my life. This diary is not a pity me diary it's a plea to do something better so that someone else doesn't have to face what I go through. I know I am going to die before I receive any help or my EEOC case gets settled. I know there is not much time left. I honestly wish I knew what to do. I am a walmart HORROR STORY.

I am trying to figure out how to get a wheelchair, but I have not had any luck. Because of walmarts illegal action I am without the one thing I need. I have informed my parents to hold walmart legally responsible if matters remain unsettle and I die to this injury. I just do not know what to do anymore and am scared. I live in Colorado Springs.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
