Topics I've Started

  1. What is happening and what should I do?

    12 December 2019 - 10:42 AM

    A visit to my doctor last week resulted in him seeking a multidisciplinary assessment from the hospital of my various injuries.
    *Right dominant hand injury together with elbows and shoulder
    *chemical injuries
    *brain injury (stroke)

    The hospital has arranged for a chest x-ray when previously it had been determined that only a CT scan will see what they are looking for and a visit to the pain clinic has also been organised. Despite having no pain of note the hospital has booked me in to be seen by the pain clinic.

    In 1993 a diagnostic procedure resulted in a blood clot going into the brain causing a stroke and unconsciousness form which I awoke with slurred speech, right sided numbness, vision disturbances such as not being able to see the right side of a sentence, lack of coordination and fatigue. While I greatly recovered over the first three months and then further recovery over the following year the symptoms have been persistent in varying degrees until the present. this ranges from barely noticeable through to to such a degree where third parties have called an ambulance with triage placing me in hospital for the night and even up to 3 days. The last hospital stay over was last year.

    Spontaneously and particularly in times of stress the symptoms quite quickly return in varying degrees.

    Yesterday I was attempting to fix my toilet which involved climbing around underneath on my back and is tight space, some effort perhaps beyond my capacity causing me to be completely out of breath for long periods of time and taking excessive amounts of time to regain a normal breathing pattern which of course is quite exhausting.

    At this moment I'm experiencing the following symptoms.
    *yesterday slightly euphoric*last night I felt a little bit off so took a 500 mg aspirin and a large drink before bed
    *for no particular reason seem to have used a bottle instead of the toilet over the night
    * Numbness to my right soul of my foot
    *weak right leg together with a loss of balance.
    *Strong tingling in the palm of my right hand.*Weak right wrist with feelings that I have overloaded the joint despite not doing much over the last few days*weak right arm
    * while writing this I received a telephone call and found myself unable to understand everything that was being said to me
    *aluminium taste in my mouth
    * numb tongue
    * numb right cheek and ear
    * a pupil would normally dilate but not this time
    *right sided vision does not seem to be affected which with these cluster of symptoms would normally be the case.
    *no visual or auditory aurora this time
    * no headache which is usually minor and hardly noticeable
    * tired and lethargic
    *I went to look for my neighbour that could not remember his name
    * abnormally I am feeling a little impatient and even agitated
    *Typing this Posting was far more difficult then usual with the computers voice software failing to understand what I am saying causing a large number of corrections. I think I am still able to detect mistakes.
    These symptoms will last several days and render me very demotivated and tired

    It is often difficult to distinguish between a TIA and migraine. The symptoms have only occurred subsequent to the stroke

    I have symptoms such as above in clusters of up to 3 or four a week for several weeks then nothing for maybe a month or two.

    Obviously when I am in this condition it is far too dangerous to drive.

    Activities don't seem to alter the situation for better or worse except make me more tired. Although it is difficult to do things and if I try to work I make mistakes which even have resulted in physical injuries in this regard I don't seem to be a very good decision-maker as to what it is safe to do. I can't seem to get any information or guidance from anybody, not even driving except for me to judge these matters myself.

    ACC have accepted the claim for cover but have not actually done anything beyond that despite being directed to by numerous review hearings.

    As I am unsupported and have no one in my life naturally these experiences are not just disturbing but really become frightening particularly when I find myself waking up in this condition. TIA lowers life expectancy.
  2. Michael Cruickshank

    25 November 2019 - 09:50 AM

    ACC appears to still be failing Michael Cruickshank by way of typical bureaucratic thuggery.
    The background of this man's history is that :

    he was injured and his claim was accepted by the ACC.
    ACC rigorously created all kinds of bureaucratic nonsense in order to deliberately fail to make good on their liabilities.
    The ACC then prosecuted for fraud, obtained a conviction and then later successfully prosecuted for threats of which Michael Cruickshank denies.
    ACC have acknowledged the authority of the courts and as much as that they had not carried out the legislative procedures correctly and were required to reimburse Michael Cruickshank yet he continues to be shortchanged.

    Historically we see a significant number of ACC claimants who are quite clearly unable to work being prosecuted for working despite there being no actual evidence of work or anything contrary to the medical certificates. This practice seems to be continuing until the present despite the ACC being aware that work does not form the criteria for cancelling a claim much less ACC's claims of information about so-called "work" from various dubious sources including from those who have a conflict of interest.
    Historically we see ACC continuing in the practice of accusing claimants of being threatening as a weapon and mechanism to avoid engaging with the claimants having legitimate claims that they have not been able to dispose of lawfully.

    Background Sample of media history:

    Michael Cruickshanks You-tube site

    Michael Cruickshank continues in this most noble crusade to clear his name.

    The basis of this discussion concerning Michael Cruickshank's claim and what appears to be a legitimate expectation that ACC comply with and administer the legislation by calculating the entitlements in accordance with the legislated criteria.
    ACC acknowledge that he is injured and cannot return to his occupation and that he has not been rehabilitated into any new occupation. So what is the basis for the ACC cancelling his earnings compensation?
    He had acknowledged that he had carried out some minor work for a variety of people without earnings. Does that give the ACC a lawful entitlement to bypass very stringent legislated criteria without any qualification as to the nature of the work and whether or not it relates to previous work task activities or the clinical integrity of the medical certificates?

    A side note is that blurb considers that his case, a variety of other cases and mine have many parallels. I'm assuming he means points of law and similar facts.

    Please try to remain on point by discussing only points of law, issues of fact and not become embroiled in any kind of personalities.

  3. Death threats

    25 October 2019 - 10:47 AM

    As it is coming up to 10 years since I have last heard of or had any knowledge of the person who issued me a death threat for my silence regarding the blowing up of the ACC.

    The time is coming where I shall be making a public announcement and releasing the audio recordings that .

    Further I will be releasing the DVD of the police interview that the police prevented the court from considering as evidence in court.
    The other bit players such as David Butler will also be exposed in full for trying t frighten the ACC.

    The minor bit players such as those who possessed information but did not come forward to the Police will also be named and shamed.

    The ACC staff who have involvement in the allegations including the feigned investigation and police complaint also have their records exposed for purpose of an independent investigation into their conduct by they made false complaint to the police as is demonstrated by accompanying exhibits proving that they did not believe the allegations made first by David Butler and Kenneth Miller followed by the manipulation of Douglas Weal which have the effect of a manipulation of a weak minded drunk who managed to manipulate those that are even more dimwitted than himself. The ACC staff recognition that the real threat was Douglas weal himself.

    The complaint I made to the police concerning what had happened will also be made public with regards to the police in action in regards to this terrorist issue designed to terrorise the ACC staff.
  4. Earnings compensation

    15 October 2019 - 12:54 PM

    There seems to be a lot of confusion between ACC staff members and various decision-makers as to the legislated criteria for the purposes of determining the criteria of when earnings compensation is payable.

    Can anyone please turn to the actual legislation for this purpose?

    Has the criteria changed over the years?
