Ive got my appeal hearing on July 2nd and Im dreading it. I cant find anyone to represent me because there's so many people going through so many appeals, that there's no one available. So Im on my own. (Except my daughter is coming with me.) I have worked hard on putting my case together but Im not one for going to my GP unless absolutely necessary.Just for meds that are on repeat, so I dont have to see him.(I have a really good GP btw, which I am very grateful for). So I havent got any evidence from a Consultant or Specialist. Ive just sort of "got on with it" since I was diagnosed in 1996, though I strongly suspect Ive had Fibro a lot longer. I also have Asthma, IBS and Depression, which Ive suffered with for many years, and recently been diagnosed with High blood pressure and Arthritis. Im a physical and mental wreck. All I can offer my appeal is a full and honest self written account of my illnesses, a letter from a former GP in 2006 saying I had to give up my job because of ill health, due to Fibro, a letter confirming I have Arthritis and not much else. I know Im better off health-wise than a lot of you, but that doesnt make me fit for work. I just couldn't cope with a job AND what I need to do at home. I'd be so exhausted all the time...I AM NOW, without having to work. I've got no chance, have I??? H E L P P P P !!!!
