Is there anything else that you would like to tell the NDIS Review?

I recently undertook a review to reinstate my funding. This funding was requested as I had used up my funds and my support manager requested another, From the onset the person interviewing me from another state (Queensland) was offensive and rude and discriminatory against people with mental health issues. I was made to justify every single point that had already been accepted previously. I had to disclose personal trauma related events to a complete stranger, and was left in tears for two days after.

I also felt shamed that as a married woman that there were times due to physical and emotional health I could not keep up with housework/cooking and on the rare occasion aspects of self care. I felt that I was judged from standards expected of women from the 50’s in my role as a wife. Shamed, humiliated and left gutted.
