Hi, as I have posted before I have been told that I have to attend the Work program run by a company called Ingeus. I phoned them to say I could not attend the appointment and the lady on the phone became very pushy and kept say Its mandatory that I attend they don't do home visit and don't really do telephone appointments. She kept saying that I had to attend, I said I could not get to them, her answer use the bus, I explained that due to depression and anxiety, and the fact that I can't walk to the bus stop, and I have a letter off the doctor confirming this
She did in the end book a telephone appointment , but told me after this I would " Have To " attend their office which for me is a 15 mins work ( on a good day, on a bad day would not make the walk) then it's a 25 min bus journey followed by another 10 minutes walk.
I told her that I would not be able to make the journey due to the fog that keeps coming over my mind to such a point I can't remember where I am or how I got there. And due to the pain on walking, just had MST increased can't even walk the length of my house.
I am sorry to moan but I am very worried about this, not helped by being in a flare and my body just seems to be creating new pain
I really can't get dress or do my hair without my daughters help.
I told them all of this only to be told " I HAVE TO ATTEND ,ITS MANDATORY . NO HOME VISITS. IF I DON'T ATTEND WILL TAKE AWAY MY BENEFITS"
Please does anyone know how I can get this sorted, if I was able to make the journey to see them, I could go back to work. I don't need any help finding a job
From a very worried Caroline
