I too injured myself transfering a 250lb man from his bed to a wheelchair, he was dead weight as he could not bare any weight on his legs. My neck and lower back are damaged, plus fibromyalgia. I am angry at what I hear from other injured workers and it drives me more into wanting to gather-up letters from all injured workers who are being abused by the high powered lawyers that write the rules for WSIB. It sure is not to benefit the injured. i wrote a letter to send to Harper, I am sure he won't listen or even get my letter, but I believe the more letters sent to Harper at once will have a bigger impact on him, at least I hope it does. Anyone that wants to write a letter about their struggles with WSIB please do and I will send all the letters out together in one big box. I think or I hope if we write our stories and send a picture of ourselves with our stories it will make it more real, more personalized. Something has to give eventually. I wrote my letter and if anyone wants to hear it, I will pass it along. My children have been affected by WSIB and my grandchildren I hope do not have to see their Nana struggle. I am a very yourng Grandma and I hope I have years left with my family, Let me know what you think, we have to get our stories out there.
