Today I went to file my income tax and was told “your not entitled to any refund” then they followed it up with “you owe us $85” I was like this has to be a mistake and by the way I am not paying you money to get no money back!
They said it was because I am on disability and that the money from disability is tax free so that’s why I am not entitled, BUT when I was on on welfare (or Ontario Works as they like to call it now) I received a tax refund of over $400.
$400 for doing nothing, I actually got less when I was working which I think is totally insane but what do I know.
I feel like I am being punished for not being able to work, It’s not a life I choose or like it’s just a fact that I am now unable to hold down a job.
So why am I being punished for that? I am no criminal.
You can sit on your lazy ass and do nothing and get more then I do, Does that on any level seem fair??
I didn’t ask to be disabled it just happened, I didn’t ask to not be able to work I tried for many years to push through the pain, to stop having these vivid flash backs in public but I could not stop what was happening and it eventually took over and I could no longer beat it.
Maybe I should go back to being a lazy drunk and do some drugs and just be an all around shithead and then maybe they will treat me better then they are at the moment.
I just feel so awful at the moment, almost like why even bother anymore.
