1 DEAD 2 DEAD 3 DEAD 4 DEAD - me INCLUDED and due medical I am still here so Centrelink has killed me TWICE now
as first time when Centrelink arbitrarily stopped my concession card (no reason provided by Centrelink and no warning) so with only $10 to my name so my $6 concession-priced heart medicine suddenly $20 (remember I have only $10 to my name that time) so I did not buy my heart medicine HAD A HEART ATTACK and died
and thanks medical help STILL here so actually I have died four times so far (my GP says I will live forever at this rate) but Centrelink says DYING FOUR TIMES does NOT QUALIFY me for a disability pension 
then ON TOP ALL THIS CRAP FROM CENTRELINK I get a $12,000 debt notice
I appeal
Centrelink hears its OWN appeal
guess the outcome
so now Centrelink takes its MANDATORY repayment of the robodebt
from the ALREADY below-poverty Newstart
that I paid INCOME TAX for 40 years for
and so I get a massive $100 each week to live on
that is $200 a FORTNIGHT
as I continue to apply for non-existent jobs
SIX THOUSAND job applications and counting over SIX years so far
and so I routinely choose between which priority
ONE a-grade medicine that I need to live or eating food sometimes
so routinely it is ONE meal every TWO days
and sometimes I do not have my priority medicine to save my life
so again I will die due to Centrelink

Once already dead by Centrelink
Two already dead by Centrelink
and THREE dead by Centrelink
pending for me  

How do you feel about the way the Government has handled this process?: 

which BANS me from contacting them
