There's something I feel I need to discuss, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).
It may be shocking to you. However, it's not shocking to me.
What is it?
It has to do with mental health. And, work.
Iwh.on.ca posted an article entitled, Mental health at work: https://www.iwh.on.ca/topics/mental-health-at-work.
Please click on the link to read the whole article.
In case you couldn't, I am sharing a small amount of what was being said (I copied/pasted):
Mental health issues, work injuries and return to work
Depression and related symptoms are more common among workers with permanent impairments following a work-related injury than in the general population, according to a study by Dr. Fergal O'Hagan as part of the Research Action Alliance on the Consequences of Work Injury (whose scientific lead was IWH's Dr. Emile Tompa).
At Work article (2013): Mental health suffers among workers permanently impaired by job injury
I found this to be amazing! Amazing that someone feels the same way I do!
After all, there are many people who do not agree with this, or with me. Especially, those people who are against injured workers.
Yes, some people do not want to help injured workers. Even though they truly need to.
Just as we read, in Deuteronomy 15:11, "For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land."
Yes, the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, or to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.
Do you realize that poor people can be injured workers? They usually are, once they've been injured with an injury that permanently affects them.
So, God wants us to all open our hands unto those who are poor, in need, being a brother or sister in the Lord, or otherwise. He has commanded us to do it.
Please do as He's commanded. For this is what He wants you to do.
Please, do what you can do.
Even if it is only speaking up/out to help injured workers.
If you do, you'll be blessed.
Until next time...
