Well where to start

I was disabled before I went to school. I wanted to be off disabilities so I went to school to become a computer tech. I knew how to fix computers prior to this.

I went to a private insituition called academy of learning. I got screwed out of my disabilities money and I could not get that canada disability learning grant (the paper work was not filled out right, although I KNEW I did). I had such a hard time dealing with school and stress from not being able to make ends meet, and did not have anyone to do it for me.  (I wonder how many government officials get off on stamping incomplete, when the jist of the message/ form is there).

So to make matters worse I had a sevre back injury along with a slipped disk from doing "day labour." No WCB for this dude :(

I was even layed up for over a month.

Well I healed a bit and got most of myschool done, but I needed a job for my practicum part. So I had to go to anouther town to get that work. The job fell through after a month. The place I was staying at fell through. I was far from physically fit to work on the oil fields I was 370 pounds then.

My hopes and dreams where shot down. I returned to my hometown. I was going to try and go to school more and become an electrition but then my back went out again while doing excersices and I was not able to make the test I needed. My Depression got horible, I shut myself off from the world. This was in november 2003.

So being poor I was not able to pay student loans, and since I was passed intrest relief I was screwed. I had more setbacks in my life and everytime I got one of those student loan letters my anger would flare up. They actually expected someone who live off penuts to be able to pay off the intrest and get the loan in good standing.

I tried for intreset relief and got denied.

These guys never care I asked is there anyway you can help me, anything you can do -- all you get is that flat out NO. I even got "its your responsiblity to bring down the principal", to which I replied "I could not due to depression."

I even had a flood last summer and arbhitration let the landlord weasle out of paying anything, to think if I could of afforded renters insurance I would of been safe.

I finally got BC Student loans off my back and have been trying to deal with the Canada student loans.

It has taken over four months for my doctor to fill out my disability debt forgiveness package.

I have informed them what was going on, they sent me the forms november 2005 and that my doctor wouldn't be back to January. I have kept them informed VOLENTARLY. I told them the status and that my doctor takes forever to fill out forms.

I tried to call them every month then and especially when one of their "computer generated forms of doom" comes in saying you owe such and such and your loans is in the rears.

Now they I got sent one saying they will garneshe my G.S.T.

I am also affraid that might mean that they might not even accept my disability debt forgivness forms. I have been trying to seek out help on the net and now I stumbled across this page here.

It is sad to see how many disabled people here suffer from the misunderstanding of student loans, why can't doctors call them up and give em heck for not playing fair with disabled people.  It should really be as simple as a letter or note from your doctor -- but its not.

I REALLY need an ADVOCATE someone whom those STUDENT LOAN SHARKS fears.

P.S. I have depression, insomnia, minor bipolar, A.D.D type C ( although I swear its worse now), I have a bad back ( I can't even lift 50 pounds with out the threat of it going out), and to top that off my weight is 480 pounds.
