when you send you appeal letter in send a sick note from your gp with it they will have to pay you until it goes to appeal, if the appeal fails take it to tribunal, keep fighting it, I am fighting it i am waiting for my tribunal now they stopped my incapacity cause they reckon i am well enough to work, my GP supports me and has been issuing me with sick notes. guess what yesterday i got a form to say they want me to go for another medical cause now they think i shouldn't get esa.......... my advise is keep fighting it, they dont have to live with FM and we do

Aw Sue, I think we have all been there at some time or another. I hope you are feeling better now that you have got support from the CAB, they were brilliant with me and took over everything on my behalf. It is really stressful which in turn agravates the fibro which increases pain, and so it goes on........... Try and relax now and let the professionals take over for you. Take care xx

Sorry to hear this , I am glad you have got a positive attitude, I am still on incapacity benefit and am dreading the letter to refer me for ESA, I get stressed just thinking about it. I think I look heathly (and i am glad I do ) , this is such an invisable illness .I know there are lot's of fraudsters around I just hope the examiners can pass the geniune people.I had stage three breast cancer and to be honest I would rather have the cancer than the fibro , people just misunderstand this illness, and I get so fed up explaining things to people when they ask why I am not working etc.

SORRY RANT OVER.
