I have osteoarthritis in my back, and recently my left shoulder, spondolosous and sacrillitis in my lower back, sorry for the spelling. I also have clinical depression. I can't walk for long periods and have a tens machine and walking stick, as I also have loss of balance. I went to an Atos medical, and read the atos report and the dwp report, I pride myself as a spiritualist and believe in the truth, I'm 54 I was a personal support worker, the lies I read, were unbelievable, I have asked for a reconsideration, first fortnight rang up and they said they had just received it, mm, then told I had to sign on job seekers, or in other words sign up or starve. that was the 9th of may when they stopped my money, its now the 20th of june, rang yesterday, as it was the day they would make a decision, 40 mins on the phone, 3 departments, then answer machine said, all our advisers are busy goodbye! my family have helped with food and electric, but no bills, so getting letters about that, how can they be allowed to treat people like this, this does not help my depression, broke down and cried yesterday, there's nowhere to turn, thank you if you read all this, I needed to get it all out there, if anyone can help I'd be so grateful.
