Hey guys, I was injured while working at Amazon over a year ago but through them denying, minimizing and postponing treatment my injury worsened and so did my circumstances. I ended up losing my apartment, having to sell all of my stuff, I missed three semesters of school since I couldn't even use my hand to write and I now have around a lot of debt from unpaid bills. If you read my article in wsws.org you'll learn more about what goes on at Amazon and even how I was grabbed at a park by one of the private detectives they sent to follow me and take videos of me (I was found doing nothing wrong).
16 months later I have finally had surgery! However, I still can't work and I have not yet started physical therapy. I had to move back to New Jersey since I could no longer afford my rent living alone on workers Comp and for many months I barely had money for food.
At this point they've hurt me not just physically by prolonging treatment but mentally. I have been on anti-depressants as I struggled to keep myself together during this hard time and extreme change in my life. I was an engineering student and I just want my life back..
I am in debt now and still struggling to make ends meet due to my bills and still having 25% of my weekly income taken out of my check for the attorney fees (Texas Workers' Comp laws).
They have put me through HELL.
I appreciate every single penny. This has been the hardest 16 months of my life. I've lost everything I worked hard for. Thank you to those of you that can help and if you can't I appreciate even if you just share this.
