I signed this petition. I never sign online petitions. But #Afflicted cannot be allowed to stand. chn.ge/2LcFWGj via @Change
Documentaries are meant to give a view of a subject or topic on a FACTUAL basis. Their opinion isn't supposed to be centered unless the subject is themselves.
#Afflicted is heavily slanted toward the erroneous assumption that the chronically ill patients are

faking,

have psychological illnesses rather than physical diseases,

or somehow in denial.

And I ask you- to what end?
What is the benefit of faking #chronicillness, #ChronicPain, #Disability or #mentalillness?

The truth is there are no benefits. #Afflicted is based on so many logical fallacies, it's hard to know where to start.
Getting #disability benefits from US or state governments I'm a nightmare. Most of us are rejected several times.

Want food stamps? States like Texas are itching to penalize or lock you up for even slight offenses.
And if you get it? As @DisVisibility has revealed, you enter into a contract to remain in poverty!
I lost a career where I was making 80 - 100k a year. I am qualified for jobs that pay $200k in my field.

Now I clear $1000 a month if I'm lucky, not due to lack of ability. Simply because I am in too much pain.
Because of #invisibleillness and the @CDCgov witch hunt on #ChronicPain? I can't get the MILD narcotic-like pill I took once a day.

Thanks #fakeopioid crisis.
What are the advantages of being a #spoonie that would warrant faking?
proud to beaspoonie. But a picnic's not.
❌ Loss of high paying career
❌ Loss of an offline social life
❌Almost certain rejection from programs that we're set up to help you
❌ Beung trapped inside?
We deal with so much- I swear my multiple disabilities would be 40% easier if I didn't have to deal with the opinions & actiiof abled peoole.
What should you do as an ally who agrees?

✅ Sign this petition.
✅ Send a message to @Netflix on social media
✅ If you've seen #Afflicted, write an honest & thorough review
✅ Watch & review #Unrest from @jenbrea - it's far more accurate
Oh, also, befriend some disabled people who use social & support and spread their much more accurate stories.

As well as ACA and ADA legislation that allows us to be both alive and active.
