Resignation syndrome

Recommended Posts

I'm calling bs on this.

 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-41748485

For nearly two decades Sweden has been battling a mysterious illness. Called Resignation Syndrome, it affects only the children of asylum-seekers, who withdraw completely, ceasing to walk or talk, or open their eyes. Eventually they recover. But why does this only seem to occur in Sweden?

Sophie and her family are asylum seekers from the former USSR. They arrived in December 2015 and live in accommodation allocated to refugees in a small town in central Sweden.

It only occurs in Sweden because the whole system bends over backwards for immigrants so invent a faux illness and keep shamming it to guarantee citizenship and a life on benefits.

Well, let he who is without a client benefit class throw the first stone.

Amazing how many fat, never worked benefits mums come down with this when their youngest hits 18:

oh, ta Spy.  I'm going to try that one to get early retirement.  It looks better than 'bad back syndrome' which has been largely discredited now.

So on the one hand immigration is wonderful because we need workers. Then we get articles like this that make clear some immigrants will just be a drain on society...

It's not that we need workers; it's that businesses (and the government) want an oversupply of workers so that it keeps wage inflation on the floor and turns the populace into an easily-controlled debt-laden, rent paying slave class.

Marxists call this the reserve army of labour.  Capital has always attempted to do this but not on this level or in such bonkers ways before.

The issue for capital or gentry is demonstrated excellently by the black death.  It wiped out over half of the population and fundamentally changed the lot of peasants for the better.  They labour was a scarce resource and so they were able to command much better terms and wages.

Amazing the lengths that some will go to for free money

All of these things are somatizations of "depression" or general malaise. Most of which come from browsing Facebook and being inactive for too long.

Oversimplifying but I reckon it's true.

She should have claimed "IBS" and "chronic fatigue syndrome" for bonus points.!

This is crossing with the sexual harrassment thread; in that there is real sexual harrassment and people do genuinely suffer badly with IBS, back pain, depression etc.

But not in anywhere near the numbers that pull DLA for it.

There was soem sort of corporate support for a Fibormyalgia charity at one co I worked at; I assumed it was a genuine defined disease given the technicla name but it's nothing of the sort.

Most tellingly from the NHS link:

There's no specific test for the condition, and the symptoms can be similar to a number of other conditions.

Unless the person is in a iron lung, the only blue badge car should be Dacia.

Im not a heartless cunt, so they can have a choice of colours.

Dacia! Luxury!

 

Should be put out to tender. They should all be the same colour so as to easily identify those allowed to park in disabled spots.

Yep - same as IBS in many cases. No diagnosis structure is given, it's just guesswork and a balloon term for any sort of gut complaint that the GP can't otherwise (be bothered to?) diagnose.

My guess is that nobody that actually has fibromyalgia or CFS actually gets benefits for it - the process is so fucking hard that no genuinely ill person is going to manage it. I was pretty much bed bound when I had my PIP interview and so ill that I honestly thought I wasn't going to see the end of the year yet according to the report they wrote I'm absolutely fine. It took me about two minutes to walk the 20 meters from the interview room to reception but apparently I managed it at normal speed. I could have appealed but the initial application took a lot out of me and the appeal process would have been even worse. To get PIP you'd have to be a professional benefit scammer, have a severe and easily observed disability or have someone with the time and energy to fight hard on your behalf.
