Housing NSW Monitors My Blog

I was totally debating as to whether or not to make this post and I have decided that I will. And the reason I am making this post is because I do not feel this situation is not right.

So yesterday (being Monday 15th July 2019) I got a phone call from a Senior Client Service Officer from Housing NSW to discuss my situation and so she could gather some more up to date information on my situation. Which is fine. Even though and I did tell her that I was a bit overwhelmed as I had only been home less than an hour after my 3 hours of scans on my heart. But I got through as much as I could until I got a call waiting call coming through from my Doctor which I had to take. So she ended and said if she needed more information she would be in touch.

But the concerning part for me with this conversation is that during our talk she brought up a post from my personal blog going back to sometime in April when I mentioned that I was slowly coming off my drugs. And she wanted to discuss this and what exactly what “illegal” drugs I was coming off and how it was effecting me. So I had to explain to her that I do not take any form of illegal drugs and the information she or someone else read and passed onto her was in fact me discussing coming off my Endone and OxyContin, which has been medication I have been on since my several months in hospital over 16 months ago now. Which she already had on Medical Information from a Doctor that I am taking these drugs and at the time I was on a very high dose when I released from hospital.

When released I was on 10 Endone a day alone, not to mention all my other medications for various other conditions. To which I am now down to 5 or 6 a day. These types of drugs that I am on are opioid medication. So when on such a high dose you can’t just stop taking them as they can cause further health problems.

So to assume I was talking about some form of illegal drugs from a post back in April, and this is now July (so 3 months ago) was so wrong. I even stated to her I was totally prepared to take a drug test to prove that I am not on any illegal drugs, and am only taking the medication that I am legally prescribed and monitored for by my Doctor. Which she said wasn’t necessary. So why bring it up then? And honestly, even if I was using illegal drugs, me coming off them and doing something about it, wouldn’t that have been a good thing?

So obviously Housing NSW is for public housing, and after this conversation and now knowing that they seem to be monitoring what I post on my own PERSONAL BLOG. My private thoughts and updates on what is happening in my life is a little concerning. A NSW Government Department monitoring what I post on my personal blog, like seriously what the fuck is the go there. I don’t give a damn if they read my blog, it’s more hits to my site, but to raise with me about what I post and wanting to discuss it is totally uncalled for.

So now I have to consider whether I am going to start monitoring my blog. Make my posts password protected or even make a warning on my site before entering is something I have been thinking about since this phone conversation. I will not be restricting my posts by having them password protected, that is not the point of writing of blog, I will also not stop posting what I feel I need to post, again let me mention this is MY PERSONAL BLOG … So before you come to me about something I wrote in my blog over 3 months ago, maybe you should get your facts right, as there are other posts which also mention the drugs that I am coming off. Which again as I know you will be reading this is Endone and OxyContin. Which is prescribed by my Doctor. As you have on your records in my file. To say that I am annoyed about this is a bit of an under statement. And might be something that I need to look into further. As it is totally unfair and not right for a Government Department to be monitoring what I write to help me keep my friends updated and also to help me get things off my chest so I can move on with certain things in my life …

So for the record. I will not stop posting what ever the fuck I want on MY blog. I will say what I want, when I want about whatever the fuck I want. So you need to back the fuck off.

I will in the coming days be putting an acceptance screen at the start of my blog when you first open it, so you understand the terms of my blog. That what I write is my choice and you read it by choice not force. And that I do not like being monitored by a Government Department. I will do this and I am making this perfectly clear now, if you are going to refuse me accommodation on the grounds of what I write in my blog I am going to appeal and I will fight you to the bitter end. I am done playing games and jumping through fucking hoops for you guys which I have been doing for 14 months to keep you fucking happy. No more. I will continue to do what I want, when I want and say what I want when I want about whatever I want. End of story. If you have an issue with this I would suggest you put it in writing and not through a phone call … then the matter will be taken to a person higher then you.
