Annoyed to say the least😡

Tambrox here hi, I have not worked since August 2017 during this time I have applied for both ESA and PIP. I have appealed and been refused ESA and now awaiting a decision upon PIP. I suffer from Fibromyalgia,arthritis,Spondylosis and as a result severe depression I am still unable to work and seek to go to a tribunial with regards ESA. Now my question being is that were or how do I get support from medical proffessionals or groups that can put over my conditions verbally or in writing as I feel when writing to the appeals board I am not getting over my exact condition and how it affects me. I feel that the appeals board want certain words to be said in correspondance and I am in no position or with the capabilities in doing so...HELP plz

Hi Momo and thanks very much for taking the time to message me... I am pleased to say that the help I have had so far is warmly welcomed. I feel that it is going to be a very long drawn out affair.

No doubt I will keep you and others informed as to events and may look to ask further comments in the future...Tambrox
