Today has become the darkest day in the State of Connecticut. 27 people won’t be coming home from school. All because some lunatic went nuts and massacred 27 people including children of all people. It’s sad when it involves kids as young as 5 yrs old to 11 yrs old. The shooter is a 20 yr old who is rumored to have some form of Autism, Aspergers and some psychiatric problems. The worst part, he shot his mother in the face as well.
The Shooting happened at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut around 9:30 Am. It was shocking to hear that, when I woke up this morning to study and get ready for my Human Biology final exam. It started out as a local story, which started to go National and now it went global with every major news station talking about it.
I feel sorry that those 27 people at Sandy hook Elementary school who are not going to be coming home. That gunman, deserves Hell for what he did. Those kids will be traumatized for the rest of their life and that school & town will never ever be the same again. Even the Volunteer fire dept in that town will never be the same. The people that responded including the Connecticut State police will be scared and traumatized for the rest of their life.
It’s why I think schools should have armed security guards and put cameras and locked doors to the school grounds. On top of that, their should be a sensible gun control laws, where we would ban anyone with a criminal record, convicted felon or a history of mental illness or hospitalization in a mental institution from ever owning a gun. Should institute mandatory FBI background check on all gun owner applications and have a national gun registry.
For now, it’s time to pray, reflect and remember the 27 people who won’t be coming home for Christmas. It’s a sad day in the state of Connecticut and let’s all remember those at Sandy Hook Elementary school.
Today, I was suppose to go vote in the election, but being that I am in College in a part of Connecticut where Public Transportation is non existent. I had a hard time today getting to the polls to Vote in the Election. I was going to Vote, but since I have no way of getting to the polls, I can’t vote in this election. I know I was told about Absentee ballots, but no one in my College told me how to apply for one or even give me an application for one. It seems that colleges make no effort in helping college students to Vote in town or by absentee ballot.
So today, Voting in this election turned me off because I had no way to get to the polls to Vote and the state never made an accommodations for disabled people to get to the polls. Connecticut never offered public transportation to the polls and never offered any voting on college campuses for student who live far from their hometown or can’t get out to the polls. If they allowed voting for any college student on campus and even for those who live on campus and can’t get to the polls. I would be able to vote on campus and vote for my hometown, even though during the school day, I am on campus.
It’s why today, I feel like voting has turned me off because I had no way to get to the polls from campus and my state & college never offered any assistance in getting either a provisional or Absentee ballot. Even not offering to vote on campus, when you don’t live in the town that your college is in. So today, I never got to Vote because no one helped me to get to the polls to VOTE.
I’m very glad that I have my patches are back. I went to my local CVS today and I got them today. It’s been a long time and a long hard fight with the Connecticut Dept of Social services to get my patches. I know that the patches just help me have a normal balance and give me that normal male energy. It’s something that I have to have and require for the rest of my life.
Life without my Androderm patches is kinda rough for me, being that I don’t have health insurance of any kind and that all my paperwork with the Ct Dept of Social services is in limbo. It’s been tough without health insurance because to pay for the cost of medications without health insurance is almost $300 for a 60 day supply. On top of that, I have bills for tuition deposit for college and pay for License for summer work. So for me, I live in a very bad situation with no way out or no opportunity.
It’s hard since I don’t have health insurance or means to pay for college or for my RX prescriptions. I’ve been waiting since December for the State of Connecticut to help me cover for my medications and my mounting medical bills. It seems like they take forever and by the time I they get to me, I may not be in the best health ever. The State of Connecticut and the Dept of Social Services has literally put my life and my health in great danger.
Now for me, the biggest thing I have to worry about, is not getting sick or injured. I hope and pray everyday that I don’t wind up in the hospital, because I can’t afford the hospital bill because I don’t have health insurance to cover it. It’s tough for me, and sometimes very stressful because every time I have call CT dept of Social services, I am given the complete runaround and given conflicting stories. I don’t get any straight answers and they keep stalling me and keeping in limbo. Which puts my health in limbo. It pisses me off that, is this is what the taxpayers of Connecticut paid for.
I’ve even asked for help from my State legislator, but it seems like I get nothing out of that. It seems like as a State resident, I don’t matter to the state legislators that I voted into the state. To me, it’s like why do I vote for them, when they are not turning the favor by helping me out in my time of need. It seems my vote was all for nothing.
I feel like the State of Connecticut Dept of Social Services has failed it’s mission and is putting the life and health of people in great danger. The people running the Dept of Social services are worse than the Postal service or the DMV. They complain that they don’t have not enough money or not enough people, but when you see them at work, they don’t do their job and treat people like me with disrespect and put people with medical issues in danger. This is why, I don’t like how Connecticut is treating me and I feel that Dept of Social services is discriminating me and putting my health in danger.
It’s been since December 2012 that I have been without health insurance of any kind and the Connecticut dept of social services giving me the fakking run around. I am getting conflicting information and no one at CT DSS is not giving me a straight answer. I am getting conflicting answers from one end and another end. I have been calling them almost every day and going to the office at least once a week trying to get answers and to no avail. I am almost at my end at how the state of Connecticut and the Dept of Social service is treating me.
It is pissing me off that the State of Connecticut and the Connecticut Dept of Social services is not doing a damn thing to help. I have been without health insurance and without the ability to pay for my medications. As a result, I have been without my Androderm medications, which cost me up to $330 for a 60 day supply. I am very angry at how the State of Connecticut, the Dept of social services have treated me and frankly I feel I am being mistreated, discriminated and even given the run around for who I am.
I have been trying to get help from anyone including calling on my state legislators such as State Sen Jason Welsh to which they don’t see to care or bother to listen to me. At this point, I am feeling like the State of Connecticut has simply ignored me, discriminated against me and mistreated me. All because I am an intersex person who requires HRT to have some normal semblance. It pisses me off that I am having to fight the State of Connecticut and the Dept of Social service to get them to cover me.
The way they treated me, is beyond disgusting. I am calling them almost everyday, having to end up leaving a message or I can’t leave a message because their voicemail is full. I am having a hard time trying to get a hold of my DSS worker, which becomes physically impossible. Even when you go to the office in person, your standing in line for hours waiting to get an answer which, then tells you one thing. Then come back the next day, they say something else.
I am pissed at how this state treats me and this is why I don’t vote Democrat or Republican anymore. I vote independent because how the two parties in this country is treating me and every intersex person in this country. I have to wonder is this what my tax dollars is being spent on. Heck the State DMV has better response than the State DSS. It’s very pitifully of how they treated me. I am ashamed at the state I live in can treat people like this withhold people’s health and medical needs. All while people like me are suffering with out proper medical care and proper medication.
This is why as soon as I get my college degree, I’m getting the hell out of Connecticut because it cost to much to live here, Jobs are scarce in this state and how they mistreated people like me. If I had a choice where I want to go, maybe the mid-Atlantic region such as Maryland, Virgina, Pennsylvania, or the Carolina’s.
