My partner has received his letter saying that ESA has been declined and we have an appeal pending because he scored 0 out of 15 on the medical blah blah blah..........anyway theyve said it could be October before the appeal happens and we need to collect evidence. So far we have sent a drs letter in as our GP wont refer him to a rheumatologist or pain clinic.
Is it worth me writing a statement and sending that in stating how him having fibro is affecting our family? (one child under 2 one on the way!) or will they just throw that out like they have the drs report?
Any help and advice would be much appreciated. I know I'm not the one with fibro but I see my partner struggling every day and not being able to play with our child. (Im also the proactive one in the relationship lol)
Many thanks for reading.
