I am constantly worrying at the mo about what will happen when the incapacity benefit is changed over, or reassessed, or whatever they finally decide to do. Last I heard there was talk of compulsory visual assessments. But what about people like us with fm, or one of the other fatigue-linked illnesses? On current and past assessments that would mean I was eligible for work! I can't imagine many employers letting you have a nap or not come into work because you just don't feel like it today. If even that amount of work was poss! I haven't wore for over 6yrs now and neverwill be able to. Do they ralise how much upset and stress these benfits cause? Sometimes getting a benefit can simply depend on who happens to be looking at your form that day. I have in past had that happen to me. Arrggghhh! Why can't they just leave us to concentrate on getting through the day rather than if we're eligible for benefits or not- they will never catch the true fraudsters (they are too clever and not as honest as true sufferers). Anyway rant over. sorry so long don't talk to people much xx
