After severe illness I am no longer able to teach. Centrelink have decided to stop all my payments (I have gone back to uni to try and start a new career) because they said I have a degree so I should use it and not be studying another. I have medical exemption from this line of work. I am now stuck with no income what so ever (I am actively looking for part-time work to fit with my studies with no luck yet).
I absolutley love my new degree I am studying but I have to choose whether I can continue (highly unlikely with no money) or try and get a full time job (not liking my luck as I am getting no interviews for even part time work).
I feel absolutely terrible knowing that something that has ruined my life is continuing to do so when I am trying to hard to get back on track…
If anyone has some advice – please feel free to share.
