Well, wish me luck as I attend an assessment with ATOS today for (hopefully) continued ESA. I had my last one with them just over 12 months ago where they deemed I was 'fit for work'. On appeal I won and then applied in June for PIP. I STILL await a decision after the face to face assessment through CAPITA at the beginning of August.
I am seeing my local MP on Saturday to discuss the length of time this is taking for a decision.
I have a chronic lung disease (Extrinsic Allergic Alveolitis) and although on medication, struggle daily with breathing and 'light' activities. I am anxious about todays assessment, yet am going armed with reports, etc and a list from my GP of further medical conditions diagnosed within the last few months. I am interested to see what the two separate assessments will result in - even though they will be 6 months apart...!!!!
