PERSONAL NOTE……PS.. I have a confession. On 1/9/12, I slipped on ice and conked my head really hard while working for #WyndhamWorldwide
, at the#WorldMark
by Wyndham Big Bear California resort. I did tell a few of you, and even asked you to keep an eye on my posts to see if I moved too far off-center…..No complaints, so that’s a good thing!

Injured Worker Still on the ‘Rest and Wait’ Program…. #ADJ8181903 http://t.co/aRzrMzUifC
*******************************************************On the date of the fall, the manager told me to work my full shift (selling dream vacations) and then the other manager told me to “see any doctor that accepts#workers
compensation insurance”. I did as instructed, and also called the Employee Assistance Program, because I was so desperately ‘dazed and confused’. On 2/4/12 I lost consciousness at home and conked my head twice more, “second impact” is not a good thing. The brain does not appreciate it.I knew enough about brain injury not to go to sleep once I regained consciousness, so I wrote a letter to the Wyndham HR manager telling her if I die because of this, I hope my family sues the hell out of them for denying medical care. She wrote back and eventually told me legal department told her not to communicate with me. D’oh. Transparent cover-up strategy.Then, I posted some #Fukushima
posts, since the local hospital is also known to …. provide less than humane medical care, so I didn’t know if those would be my last posts to you all, so I wanted to be sure you had as much information and as many links on #Fukushima that I could get to you before heading to the ER to find out more about the loss of consciousness that results in further injuries, apparently, including a right rotator cuff tear.While I took medical paperwork regarding the TBI/Concussion, they kept saying, “Do you feel safe at home?” because I had a black-eye, too. Slow to think, I thought, “well, I just lost consciousness and conked my head again, and was out about 20 minutes or so the second time, and I live on 5 acres, and this hospital scares me because I have heard terrible stories about it….but I didn’t want to risk the 40 mile drive to a real hospital…. and I thought about feeding the bunnies and road runners etc.” then I just said, “yes”.
I asked one doctor, “OMG, what I do if I don’t get all my marbles back?” He said, “Well, you could assemble widgets perhaps.” I grimaced and said, “I LIVE IN RURAL AMERICA. THERE ARE NO WIDGET ASSEMBLY JOBS HERE.”
Fortunately, for me, the part of my brain that can type was less impacted. I didn’t leave the house for nearly 2 years, so I had plenty of time to research and post and repost and repost and repost to you, creating and participating in various groups and pages, and learning to blog and Tweet and Pin etc. FB has been THERAPUTIC, AND MUCH LIKE ASSEMBLING WIDGETS.
Other friends have said things like, “With your missing marbles, you still have plenty more than most.” Others have said, “You’re a lot more fun now! Less intense!” Others have said, “never tell anybody you have a brain injury, it comes with a stigma”…. D’oh!!! I can pretend with the best of them….for just so long, and then I get looks like, “OMG, did she just say that out loud??” What I have learned in FB TBI support groups, and one and one with friends, the symptoms of TBI are what they are, and most people muddle through compensatory actions….. so, we all have a brain, and with the advances in neuro-sciences, we get to discover new ways to use them.
I have made some good virtual friends in this Journey, Fukushima and Traumatic Brain Injury. FRIENDS DON’T LET FRIENDS STAY IGNORANT.
LET’S MAKE SOME MORE NOISE…..WORK COMP IS KILLING US….. ADD IT TO THE MIX OF OTHER DEPOPULATION EVENTS, WITH PLAUSIBLE DENIABILITY.
WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW. WE DO NOT…FORGET.
The liars, psychopaths and criminals I have been exposed to are surpassed only by the pro-nukers in and around social media.
In November 2012, the then attorney attempted to coerce me to accept a settlement offer, without benefit of seeing a brain doctor, for $100,000, less his fees. I said, “Dude, I am injured, not stupid. I need to know what’s wrong with my brain and what it will take to get it fixed. I can’t “settle” anything till I have the facts. [Look for a future blog on Attorneys and WorkComp…… you won’t believe some of the stories, and what their incompetence does to harm injured workers…..]
What I have learned about #Workers Compensation will be outlined more fully in subsequent blogs. Check out some of the early ones, and if you have a story, add it in the comments or send me an email. WynLINDA@gmail.com.
WE DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT. WHAT THEY HAVE DONE TO ME, I KNOW THEY HAVE DONE TO SOME OF YOU, AND EVEN MORE. LET’S SEE WHAT WE CAN DO ABOUT GETTING A CLASS ACTION SUIT MOVING….MAYBE WE CAN CONSOLIDATE EFFORTS AGAINST THE INSURANCE CRIMINALS AND THE DOCTORS OWNED/LEASED BY THEM…… BY JOINING UP WITH INJURED VETERANS IN AMERICA. THEY, TOO, ARE BEING DISPOSED OF.
MADDER THAN HELL, HERE…… AND WAIT FOR THE RANTS ON THE CROOKED DOCTORS AND LAWYERS….. Y’ALL AIN’T SEEN NUTHING YET…..
WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW. LIVE LIFE IN ALL CAPS TODAY.
‘Linda, Lucy…’.”WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE” The neurologist and neuro-psychologists say that because my employer, Wyndham, and it’s agents, denied medical care for the past nearly 888 days, nothing much more can be done. “Embrace the New You” they say. If you will share this with your friends and neighbors, perhaps we can shine a little light on the devastation of American’s Criminal Work Comp System.
