Morning my fibro family,
Apologies, I haven't been on for a while due to a combination of; not being well, organising my daughter's 21st, not being well, holidaying.........oh, and not being well!!
I've come on this morning for some moral support from people that know exactly where I'm coming from.
I have the week from hell next week and it is already making me feel really unwell, my FMS, CFS & Crohns are all being exasperated by my worrying, and all flaring up at the same time.
Having rec'd an award of Standard Rate Mobility for PIP, I currently have a reconsideration being carried out on Living Allowance. I was confused that I was entitled to mobility, but it didn't affect my daily living......hence the Appeal.
I am also currently appealing against my employers decision to deem me unsuitable for ill-health retirement.
Next week I have a work capability assessment for ESA, 2 days later I have a medical meeting regarding my ill-health. Although I will be accompanied by family members to both meetings, even with their support I don't think I can get through next week.
I can't bear to have another meeting with people I feel don't believe my chronic pain & fatigue, or my anxiety & depression.......I just want somebody to believe and understand, so all this paperwork can finish and I can concentrate on trying to feel a little better.
Please help, what can I do to survive next week?? 😪
