I went for an assessment centre meeting last Tuesday and as my appointment was 10.30am I arrived a few minutes before as I didn't want to wait too long. The journey getting to the centre was painful especially my mother pushing my wheelchair on the pavements which desperately needed repairing. I got to the centre and my mother told them I was there. I filled in the appropriate form and then moved to where my mother could sit down. I felt a draft start my involuntary spasms and so asked my mother to move me. She moved me next to the security man who was sitting reading a paper and messing with his phone. After my spasms were still continuing and were getting worse I asked the man if the machine causing the draft could be switched off. Apparently instead he turned it to freezing. My legs, arms and back were going like the clappers and so my mother asked when I was going to be seen and they told her I would be next. When someone else went in my mother again asked saying that if she didn't take me home soon then she would need an ambulance. They left me until the end to be seen (12.45pm), even people they were going to cancel got seen before me. They could easily see I was in a lot of pain and discomfort and that I wasn't putting them on. I normally walk around to reduce my pain but cannot do that with spasms. I haven't got a clue what questions I was asked in the assessment or would responses I gave. But I hope it has shown that I am incapable of work. How long do you have to wait for an outcome?
