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.
