  • they tried to do that to me, we went to the gmnt with a previous case case law and we got the boards decision turned to a yes. I do not have details to hand sorry as it was not me who found the case law but yes its possible.

  • Don't give up, traceybarker. Keep fighting. I think the people who make all the rules and those who are trained to carry out assessments are hoping we'll all go away, but we won't. You have all of us on here to support you. Comforting hugs, Saskia.

  • Hi traceybarker

    I am so sorry to read that your decision went against you. Please do not give up the fight and carry on as I truly believe that Fibromyalgia is a real disability. And I sincerely believe that you are entitled to your benefit.

    All my hopes and dreams for you

  • Well said Ken XXX

  • thanks so much for the reply ,i will fight ,but sometimes feel like giving up at times ,thinking i can never win .

  • They did the same with me , I went to a tribunal in the end after months of No coming through my door, they then sent a doctor to see me and within a few weeks I got the letter through the door that we dont like to open and it was a Yes ! Good on you for fighting on ! They have to recognise fm is a disability .

    good luck , hugs angie x

  • So sorry to hear that, good luck with your fight and well done for fighting on. I am in the middle of an appeal process at the moment and know how stressful it can be. I'm on my last chance...
