Woman On Welfare Says She Cannot Work Due To Her Breasts Being Too Large
What seems apparent is that Nim Murphy has too much of a good thing, or perhaps a better way of phrasing it would be as a plural “to many good things.”
The Sydney woman said her large breasts meant she could not find a job and had to rely on welfare.
"I can't work, I can't exercise properly, I can't do most things," Ms Murphy, 27, told A Current Affair.
"I don't want to be on the dole and not doing anything."
Ms Murphy used to work as a roadie performing physical labor at music shows and festivals. In recent years, the pain has become so extreme that she says she can't physically hold down a job.
"About two and a half years ago I had to call in sick because I got out the front door and started vomiting in my front yard just from the pain and so I had to stop working."
Ms Murphy is desperate for breast reduction surgery, but her present financial state and lack of private health insurance are standing in her way.
Is this a question of it being a medical condition or simply a cosmetic one?
Ms Murphy's case is not considered a high enough priority and she will have to join a waiting list for years to undergo the surgery under the public health system. In the video below she seems to be able to get up and down stairs just fine and appears able to get in and out of her home. Why not head to a job instead of the park.
While this woman may have pain due to her breasts if she can sit at home why is she not able to sit at a desk and do work? Sure, a doctor has said she is in need of surgery and that may very well be the case but its hard to believe she is unable to do ANY work at all.
What do you think of this woman's claim? Many people face hardships but is she just taking the easiest path here?
