I went for my assessment appeal today. It went how I thought it would.....I have to keep fighting. Although I did earn myself another 6 points to add to the 6 I got at the origional assessment by Atos, so I still need another 3. What do they want for those extra 3 points? one of my lungs perhaps?!! My daughter came with me and she just broke down in tears when they told me, "you have to sign on tomorrow or you will lose your benefit altogether". I struggle on the £70 they make me survive on now, and Jobseekers is likely to be less. Also I'll have to sign on as available for work, when Im not. But if I dont, goodbye benefit. My daughter said to them, between sobs, that she is scared for my safety as I have had suicidal episodes before.Ive struggled for at least 30 years with Fibro and Im just about done with fighting and coping and surviving. I think they are trying to get rid of us any way they can. But Ive got to find the energy somewhere, they CANT win.
