ESA Support Group!

Hi, I just wanted to share my good news. I found out last week that I've put in the Support Group without a medical. I was soo relieved I can't tell you, especially because I'd heard bad things about fibro. It isn't my only condition so it could have been the other things that helped too. I used the guides from Benefits&Work as well as the ones on MyLegal. They are definitely worth using. My GP also wrote a good supporting letter. I hope this is encouragement to others. I have heard of more people getting into the Support Group lately compared with last year.

Best of luck to all going through all this.
