Just stopping in to say hi

Posted by Noa on March 16, 2021, at 12:05:56

I havent been here in a long while, but I entered the site to complete the depression questionnaire and then to post a question about it on the admin board, so I thought Id stop in and say hi. Im an old-timer from when babble started, and it was a life-saver for me.
This has been a crazy year for me as it has for everyone. I am fortunate, though, not to have lost anyone dear to me or to get sick. I have isolated all year, due to health risks. It was lonely and depressing sometimes and of course, anxiety inducing. But I feel I managed fairly well. I couldnt work, so finances are worrisome, but I feel very fortunate to have had some savings to live on. I tried to keep myself busy with various thingspodcasts, books, crafts, zoom webinars, etc., as well as volunteer things that I could do from home.
Now Ive had my first dose of the vaccine and can see the light at the end of the tunnel. This feels both liberating and a relief and at the same time anxiety provoking in a different way. I see my money running out and am glad that being vaccinated will allow me to try to find a job, but that brings up a lot of my usual anxieties about employability, ability to sustain a job, competence, confidence, etc. add to that the realization that all the things I dreamt of completing during the pandemic that havent been done are now staring me in the face.
I hope others are doing well. How are you feeling at this point?

Hi back at ya.

I remember your name.

Congrats on your vaccination and the peace of mind it provides. I wish you the best with employment etc. Things are difficult for many, yes.

I am... Waiting on the courts of NZ for some justice / recognition in NZ. Returned... Ooooh... 2012 I reckon. And only been pathologised and excluded on my return.

I'm getting things before the courts though. Finally. So will see.

I don't see how them not providing justice for me helps them at all.

Thanks.

What are you waiting for the courts about, may I ask?

Sigh. What am I not waiting on the courts for?

The 2 public Medical Schools in NZ refuse to train me because they believe they have power to choose whoever they want and they don't choose me. They don't get to choose, though, they have this objective criterion they are supposed to use to select candidates and they refuse to apply it correctly to my application.

I completed a 1 year research degree at a different University in NZ and submitted the thesis in fulfilment of regulations for the Degree 24 february 2019. They refuse to get it to external examiners with the forms for sign off and they refuse to authorise it to be hardbound (to do with invoicing for that since they are supposed to pay for the hardbinding costs). They maintain that they can give or withhold Degrees for whatever reasons they want and they don't have to follow their calendar regulations that say the outcome is to be based in reports of examiners. They both maintain that the examiners required me to re-enrol and pay more fees (when the examiners did not say this) and they maintain that the Dean is allowed to reject teh reports of examiners and require them to re-write new reports if she feels like it.

I am waiting on the courts for the fact my previous landlord hard installed a heater in violation of manufacturers instructions (that they left for me in the flat quite blatantly) and did not get an electrician to sign off on the electrical work. We have had a hearing... A rehearing... Apparently the courts have authorised a third re-hearing. With an entirely different adjudicator. Apparently this is separate and distinct from the appeals process... That is to say they get to have... 3? Goes at appealing a decision once they've exhausted... Well... How many re-hearings could there possibly be? THe instructions say 'not like this' and there is a picture. They did what blokes do. They didn't read the instructions they copied the picture and thereby installed it contrary to manufacturers instructions. It does not meet healthy homes legislation that is coming into force.

The issue now is the Auckland Council is getting involved. I think it is because they put those heaters in teh council flats etc. All the budget accommodation to do with the council. None of the electrical work is being signed off on by a qualified electrition (as it's supposed to be) because builders are cheaper tradies and they've found themselves dodgey ones who have been saying 'whatever you say sir yessir she'll be right sir' which is likely what they said up until the point the new trade convention centre burnt to the ground for the insurance because they got the contract from underbidding and realised at some point that it wasn't getting completed.

I am...

Waiting on a judge to grant a summary judgement (how long should that take?) to require the public University of Otago to give me an application to enrol form. Because they are not 'available upon request' and you shouldnl't have to beg or bribe them they should supply them. Then the courts will have to babysit how they process the application because they can't say 'we have already made up our minds and we do not choose her' they are required to consider the evidnece and made the decision on the basis of the right reasons.

I am also waiting on the Auckland District Health Board. Do you know of 'sane in insane places'? I think he was a Swarthmore psychology professor. He got people to say 'thud' or a couple words like that in a psychiatric assessment and then otherwise act entirely normal. See how long they were held in psychiatric inpatient facilities in the US. Apparently they had writs of habeas corpus in their pockets... Or not... It's unclear how much it's myth / legend...

I presented to the ER with physical complaints. Open wound. They ignored that and involuntarily detained me. I did not feigh psych symptoms at all. It was true that I was a bit... Psych on tenter hooks (as many were) with the lockdown. I said that I had been in my bubble of 1 for a couple weeks. So they put me in a room by myself (solitary confinement) one can only suppose to try and make symptoms more florid... Then they didn't keep any of the paperwork.

I know they were trying to punish me for asking for help from the health system in Auckland. They have written 'use of force' on my file. That is to say they believe they are justified in using force when it comes to me.

I have put in request for my file notes because I believe one of the people passing themselves off as doctor is not qualified / trained / registered. On the basis of speaking with him. They did not do what they were supposed to do to hold someone and involuntarily treat them. None of the paperwork. Etc. So the justice can pronounce on that, too. How it isn't keeping someone under the mental health act when you lock them in a room and force them to take medication without a proper assessment and so on. It's just keeping people in conditions of torture.

I must be crazy, you see. To think that they would choose me to do Medicine.

I must be crazy to not understand that they just do whatever they want to whomever they want because they want.

I must be crazy to not understand that me-victim of them. They - state funded / sanctioned / chosen abusers.

That's life in New Zealand.

Thanks for your well-wishes.

I don't suppose that things will improve.

Our leaders are very committed to continuing on their merry way trying to get New Zealand to develop into how other developed nations were trying to develop 50 or 70 or 100 years ago.

And nothing functions / works in NZ. Systemically. Systematically.

It's cronyism and nepotism all the way through. We are so corrupt we are quite blatant that this is just how we do business.

Except it is how we come to be excluded from business.

The infrastructure is deteriorating because they don't maintain it. They don't look after it.

They don't enforce anything.

They populate the prisons and psychiatric institutions with political dissentors... People with capacity when it isn't about capacity it is about cronyism and nepotism.

And they refuse to imprison the white collar white psychopathic tyrants making things worse for everyone. They refuse to imprison them.

They won't enforce the laws.

The entire country is a f*ck*ng joke.

It isn't just that we don't have a health system. We don't have an education system. We don't have a legal systmem. We don't have any of the things.

People just do whatever they want whenever they want because they want.

During the lock-downs it became clear that segments of NZ society have started to arm themselves up.

Semi automatic weapons. Pop pop pop pop pop along the side of the car.

Australa's been deporting NZers with known gang connections.

They are saying they are noticing it in the prisons in NZ. The prisoners are becoming harder to manage.

Yeah. People in NZ are getting pretty sick and f*ck*ng tired of the corruption and micromismanagement from the leaders here.

There was no way for them within the law. So they pop you in the head and steal your stuff. What did you think was going to happen?

Oh yeah. People don't think.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to hijack your thread.

I feel very sad that New Zealand turned out to be such a heap of sh*t of a country. I mourn the loss of human potential... The people are kept very oppressed, here, by tyrant leaders who spend their lives squabbling and squawking and in-fighting doing their best to have people around them labelled mentally ill and otherwise incapacitated. Just a nasty toxic environment. A race to the bottom. A quest for supremacy and absolute power for the brief fleeting moment it lasts...

Just a stream of that...

Nothing develops or grows sustainably.

Only cronyism and nepotism as people work to re-create the hierarchies they supposedly fled from. The class systems of England or India...
