Third assessment today


Morning all, have my 3rd assessment today, yes on a Sunday, went to my Doctor last week to ask for my medical records, paid for them and they sent something from 2009, nothing about my condition now, took it back and asked them to update it, did not get it back , they didnt ring when they said they would, worried now that that is what they have sent to the assessors, i stopped work 2 years ago and have been on ESA since then thing is if i dont get through this one , can they stop the ESA, i get PIP till 2018.

On the record that they sent , they had got wine drinker on it , i have never drunk wine in my life, family can vouch for that, i rarely touch alcohol because i dont like the taste. All the stuff on there is irrelevant as i was still working then, i dont have anyone i can take with me because of the time and date.

Been in and out of the Doctors all week as i woke up in severe pain on Tuesday and they are doing tests but i bet the assessors wont know about that, oh well nothing i can do now.

Wish me luck.

I always ask for a copy of any reports from consultants, X-rays etc when I see the Dr about them. That way I know I have updated records at home. Bit late for you now sadly, but a thought for you from now on 🐸

I am so sorry , try disabilities rights they might be able to help you ! Or age concern, you'd be surprised how they will come through for you , it's shocking what can be assumed by a doctor , and possibly I suspect listen to gossip possible from people who don't know you and make up things for drama.

Good luck


Surely they will assess you on now hun and not previously i would cancel to day if you can as you are allowed one cancellation.untill you get all this sorted out with doctors it will give you some grace..up to you as yoy are so worriedxx

Hi all, thank you so much for your comments, i am back, it went well, no examination, the lady i saw, Helen from Liverpool, was brilliant, she said i am recommending the support group for you , you will be 62 this year and they cant find jobs for the 20/30 year olds, arthritis is degenerative, its not going to get better. you shouldnt have to come here again, well i can only wait now and see, thank you all for your support xx

Hi , well good luck with yours, i will let you know when i hear anything xx

Hi angelm54

I am so genuinely sorry to read that they got a basic fact wrong! It is truly awful and unforgivable. As the others have said there are people like disability advocates etc that can help with these situations. I am also so sorry to read that you are suffering and struggling at the moment and I would like to sincerely wish you a speedy recovery.

I want to genuinely and sincerely wish you all the best of luck with your assessment.

All my hopes and dreams for you
