Okay, I got hurt 4/1/09. I worked for 3 months after injury date. The company was paying dr. Bills out of thier pocket. I wasn't getting any better and was telling them weekly (or when owner would ask sometimes 3-4 times a week). They started to try to get me to quit but I wouldn't so then they laid me off. I then went to lawyers office 6-09 it took them until 1-10 to start paying me weekly check. I still have not recieved " back pay " over 15000.00. Now I have never said that I was unable to work ( that came from the dr.). All I ever said was I'm in lots of pain when I work. Now that I am on workers comp. everyone acts like I should act handicap. Now I have had an MRI and it's showed bulging L4-5. I do as little as possible. But i am still in pain. I don't take the pain medication as I should because of the fear of addiction. Now my question is why is it not okay to go fishing when your in pain either fishing or sitting on the couch. I fish currently and will not quit for any reason other then death or crippled. I'm 22 years old and have 2 kids my oldest loves to fish. Why should I have to stop being a father because I have P.I.'s following us around. Now I do have someone to help load and unload the boat most of the time. Also I'm not fishing 7 days a week. Just looking to get y'all take on it. Oh and they are trying to get my surgery approved. So I'll be down for how ever long.
