I just had to post my news today as I am still in a state of extreme shock and disbelief. My ESA Appeal Tribunal was scheduled today at Bradford Courts at 4pm. I have been angsting, stressing and crying for hours over this, worrying myself sick. I took the advice I saw on these pages and sent in an 8 page document on my typical day, a 5 page document listing all my medical conditions, what they are and how they affect me as well as letters from my pain clinic, GP and 7 different consultants. No real new information was included, just a rehash and a bit more details of old information. Anyway, this morning at about 10am I had a phone call from the Tribunal saying they'd had two cancellations and could I come earlier? Of course I couldn't as I had arranged with my ex to take the afternoon off work so he could take me and explained he could not drop everything and change arrangements. Then, at 1pm I received a second call from the Tribunal stating 'we have reassessed the information you send us and have decided that you don't need to attend the Tribunal and we have awarded you with continued ESA'. Can you believe it? Am I dreaming? Where did this common sense come from? The relief I feel and freedom from horrific stress and anxiety is impossible to measure and I'm sharing this to offer hope to others on this forum who, like me, have probably been bricking it with worry. I'm sure there's a nefarious political reason why they have awarded this to me but I feel this turnaround offers hope to all of you out there so good luck everyone! (Jeez! I'm so relieved I still can't believe it. :-))
