You will all probably find this completely unbelievable , but in the last few days I was worrying that as I'd been placed in the WRAG that my money would be coming to an end after 365 days, thus I wanted to get hold of my local Jobcentre in Honiton, by phone preferably !! Now as many of you will be aware, your average Jobcentre isn't exactly a place of welcome and good news. Anyway after a lot of ringing of numbers and being irritated by the "sorry there's no one here to take your call at the moment, please call back later" I persevered and lo and behold got hold of the exact person who I had seen 11 months ago. Here's the difference, she could not have been more helpful, and immediately said, "oh yes, I remember you, you have fibromyalgia don't you?" She was so kind assured me that I will have no change in what monies I receive until August 2014. I can't tell you how relieved I am, I was very concerned that it was going to stop any day now, but no !
I wish everyone here had a person at their own Jobcentre who was just like the lady I liaise with, I'm sure you would find the whole thing a lot less stressful, there are at the end of the day some good people working in this difficult and unpopular position and to come out of it being really nice is kudos to her.
Very very thankfully, Foggy x
