Unreal!,I have fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, dercums disease,sleep apnea,I have growths on bowels which cause a lot of pain I'm waiting to be seen about,I'm also waiting on a brain scan,asthma, excema,period problems,h.s (cysts)hereditary from mum,chronic pain,and I can't remember if I'm missing anything!no surprise! I walk with two sticks when I am able to go out,but they want to know if I'm fit for work,anxiety&depression to.

Fight it curlybacks, they did exactly the same to me. I think failing either ESA or PIP, triggers them to hit us with both barrels. I've had 18 months of hell trying to keep up with my bills.

I won my ESA appeal and

I'm for my PIP tribunal Weds, I'm dreading it.

Try get some help off your GP and CAB or something similar xx

Its unreal isn't it?the thing is three years ago I went for fit for work sick appointment I refused to see a nurse as they had lied previously I told them I want a Dr,so I got a lovely psychology Dr I believe she was cause she went through my mental side and said we don't have to go over physical side that my mental side would most likely not be sorted in this lifetime because I'd been through so much,she even went as far as asking description of guy I'd seen last time and emailed head office about it saying I shouldn't be bothered by them again!and yet here we are,my daughter just can't get over them sending this when I just had a peaty lump removed and am meant to have another done from my tummy area soon.they give us m.e alone!mental exhaustion with third b.s ,feels like I'm being stalked!lol!you know ,by the constant pestering and banging head against walls.

Oh and pip I had welfare rights which only answered one thing and allowed them to torture and intimidate me and not allow me to refer to my carer,I've took it to my m.p.did you have to do that?what did they do to you?

I know it doesn't make any sense! I do r have as much wrong with me as you do. But still I am in constant pain. I am cutting my working hours again in August😢if you were a child with adhd you would have no problem getting benefits even though you are physically for. I don't understand how the system works. Best wishes.

Thanks and the very best to you to.

Hi curlybacks it is normal these reiviews you do tend to get 18 months to 5 years and they are thinking about no more assessments if your in the support group.do take your time with forms and check the dates first if you have your last medical report look at it if not get a copy and go over that drs report and copy some of it into your forms .the wording as well is a bit vital use the words LONG TERM .SEVERE. WIDE SPREAD .CHRONIC. NO CHANGE ETC. (MENTAL HEALTH) DISORDER .and any letters all this not to just pass to try not get a f2f assessment for you .hope it works out .
