A Little Bit About Where I've Been, Why I Left And A Thank You For The Years Of Support From The Sims Community

 

When I started My Sims 3 Blog in 2009, it was just a few months after an injury at Salem Hospital in Massachusetts. 

The Blog afforded me to make a little money from Google, while I thought I was in recovery from what was done to me at this hospital and I enjoyed doing it, because I love The Sims.

I have never asked for money and still refused to, because of what happened to me... that is on Salem Hospital for what they did to me and the cover ups that followed. 

This hospital is well protected, being owned by Mass General Brigham. 

In 2012, when the injury was corrected by a wonderful doctor and his team at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, I started getting really angry about what was done to me and sought out attorneys, but was told by close to ten lawyers, that they are a part of Partners and Mass General and would drag out this case for years, until it cost more to try the case than what I would get for a settlement.

I had no choice but to sell my family home in 2012 to survive a few years and move into another home for less money. I have survived off of my own money for 13 years now, without help from The State or Government until recently. 

In 2018, I was forced to do the same thing and sell my home again to buy something for less money to survive another few years.

I was repeatedly denied disability, because their doctors determined I was not disabled, yet I never once saw a doctor from Social Security in those 13 years.

The following posts I will add after this one are my entire story and explain everything. The lies, the corruption, altering and flat out lying on my medical records, all to protect themselves. I posted three entries on THIS BLOG about what was done to me, it's all there

I moved from Massachusetts to New Hampshire on January 2, 2019, after closing on my house in Massachusetts and quickly purchasing my new home in New Hampshire.

Still being denied help of any kind from The State and Social Security. 

Finally, my nurse from my health insurance recommended I talk to someone at Center For Life Management in New Hampshire, things started moving along.

They are a mental health facility, where I have a counselor, IMR (Illness Management Recovery) counselor, In Shape, which helps with the years I spent in bed, so sick from what this hospital did to me and an advocate.

I was finally legally declared disabled by the state and Social Security.

I look at this as a temporary thing and I hope it is. I've tried going back to work a few months ago but my limitations from being bedridden for pretty much six years started increasing again.

I know it will take some time, but I do have a great team of people on my side.

Salem Hospital contacted me in 2017 when I posted about what was done to me while in their care on Twitter.  They wanted me to take what I tweeted about them down and tried turning it around on me, asking why I am doing this to them. Eventually I did, but started tweeting again a couple of years ago.

They contacted me again a couple of months ago on Twitter, this time I just rudely responded to them and never called them, like they asked me to. I don't know if they finally wanted to offer a settlement or just turn things around on me once again.

I know the name is silly, but it's the truth. What they put me through and the years of being ignored, I honestly questioned many times if this hospital had actually killed me in 2009 and this has all been some sort of Hell state I've been living since.

Before this injury, I walked and hiked 5 to 10 miles, usually 5 times a week.

This place destroyed my life and got away with it... or at least they have for now.

Center For Life is now starting a new program with me for career counseling, and I hope to go into some type of patient rights/advocacy and they will be, as they've been, my primary target.

Their reviews are horrid and they keep getting away with ruining people's lives.

Thank you for listening.
