Twenty one years ago, my life was suddenly plummeted into a spiral of chronic pain, confusion, and hate. After a disabling wreck that fractured my entire spinal cord, it produced bullet sized holes in two of my vertebra from the herniated discs between the fractured vertebra pushing the disc fluid into the fractures. After years of trying to heal, an aggressive disc disease developed that is far worse than degenerative disc disease, hypertrophic facet disease. I would have never dreamed of being a political prisoner because of an injury I could only just stare at as it approached me at fifty-five miles per hour before the car hit me so hard that I spun in circles and my head went into the windsheid. I am a political prisoner deprived of my liberties; authorities target me, my family, my life, and my sanity, due to my unacknowledged disability. When I say political prisoner, in legal terms, it fits although I’m not behind the same kind of bars as if I had committed a crime. The prison I occupy is one I can’t leave, until the disability court ruling denying me benefits is overturned and my disability on a federal level is acknowledged.
After applying for disability seven times, the discrimination because of my youthful age produced hate and volience directed at me for not being an able bodied individual. With my family who needed me to sacrifice my health above all else, I continued to work. After I returned home from long days of work, my pain would keep me up all night. So when it was time to go back to work, I had not slept. I would continue to work each day until my body had become exhausted to the point that my pain( which effects me every second) did not penatrate my consciousness, after suddenly falling asleep, and not waking me back up. Which I feel lucky that I didn’t fall asleep behind the wheel after work and kill an entire family in a wreck, and possibly kill myself. Is this what needs to happen before I receive benefits or do my children have to bury me first? I refuse to believe that a man has to hurt himself and cause permanent damage to his body just to be a provider in the family.
My life was threatened several times, targeted with hate and volience, and singled out as a drug abuser. I was brutalized in the middle of the street by the police where everyone could witness, only to further injury my spine. I can not do this alone and without help. Please, if you can find it your heart to understand, I did not want to put my life and others in danger, and you can help support me while in this prison.
In the United States, I do not recieve medical care, assistance, and shelter. Seeking refuge in another country, I recieve medical care and shelter while being protected by the United Nations. This protection keeps me safe from any danger that formerly threatened and ruined my life. Everyday I occupy this prison because I do not want to suffer, die unnecessarily, and allow my children to witness the atrocities that violate my human rights. Where does it leave me? I am unable to provide for myself here. Which means I can not afford to buy food, medications, supplies, and the necessities of life. I am barely able to function without causing trauma in my life everyday due to pain, when all I truly want is to be present as a father to my children.
As a political prisoner seeking refuge abroad, the Surpreme Court is the only judicial body that can overturn all the years of hate, volience, and discrimination. You can help! With national support, Everyone can help change how disability benefits are given to those who need it. Everyone who cannot function normally or gainfully work deserves benefits, not just those who fit the parameters of the elderly and diseased. Everyone who has experienced hate, volience, and discrimination knows how it happens in daily life and we can fight this fight before it is to late. Help me be free from the political powers that hinder everyone’s life, before more prisoners are entrapped. Everyone in their life chooses the fights to win and this fight is the fight, Equality and Justice for all!
