Hayliegh job is important not only does she let me know when I need help she supervises me even when I have to work life on life’s terms.
Reality is today I have to face the monster I have been so miss treated by IHSS/Public authority due to their clerical error. They have had my name attached to someone elses SS #.
Can you imagine they made the mistake and when I called to share my plite. I have been treated with such disdain, I have been put off , put on hold for 25 minutes at a time, put off to someone else, told another department is responsable then sent to a diff department and then sent to wrong departments.
This all started on April 1st no joke, April fools day! I raced to SS admin office because I received a letter from SS Admin. that my SSDI benefits could be affected all due to (my employer) IHSS/ Public authority mistake.
I lived all weekend w/ the fear of how “me” one person in the world is going to get this job fixed. Then a dear friend who I have helped through “The Hayliegh Project” said why don’t you call so and so and then thought I need to advocat for myself as I would for others.
After 4 hours of phone calls w/ IHSS/Public authority to correct my SS # and my W2’s forms. A hero came along The US Department of labor they sent me to the records keeper department. Wonderful Al in the records department took my info and immediately phoned the IHSS/ Public authority people and boom, minutes later IHSS/ Public authority phoned me to fix the problem.
The lady that called from Public authority whom we will call “G”. Has confirm that I will be recieveing amended w2’s back to 2008 corrected in my social sceurity number and wages earned. I shared w/ G that the stress of this situation has really affected my fibromyalgia and CFID/ME. It turns out her sister is sick w/ the same condition. I mentioned maybe I could be of some service to her sister. I run “The Hayliegh Project” and maybe I could help w/ resources or even be a compassionate ear to listen. Who would have thought the company causing so much stress on me that “The Hayliegh Project” could be of help to someones (G’s ) sister.
I have learned something from this experience and it is very clear I am not going to let anyone speak to me in a demeaning or abusive way period. I started my day dealing w/ the many women from IHSS/Public authority who were rude and unkind to me. I said “I do not deserve to be spoken to in a harsh or scolding manner.”
Outcome; I phone the IHSS worker and her sipervisor to report the poor treatment and I will find a way to report the Public athority for thier harsh treatment of me. I am not the only one!
I had a friend who was unempathetic to my changing plans to get together w/ her this last weekend because I would not make good company due to the stress of IHSS and my health being affected. I don’ t normally right off friends, but this isn’t the 1st, 2nd or 3rd time I have dealt w/ her shortness or lack of compassion and understanding.
I have called the U S Department of Labor to thank Al.
In everything there is a gift, so what are they? not giving up and not being miss treated.
Hayliegh says WOOF, not to be a doormat, be kind to others and to discern wisely in all areas of our life.
