As per previous posts i went for my medical on 19th June, and received my brown envelope on Monday.... did not have the heart or inclination to open it as i was so down so i only opened the letter last night in mid tantrum, was very quietly going off on one and though well it can't make things any worse.lol
WELL...WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN....
Now i've re read the letter and tried to digest it i'm feeling a bit better. It's very confusing as all the letters are from different depts.
Briefly...well as brief as i can..struggle with that one..
Medical services letter from the DWP sent a questionnairre re Limited Capability for Work, resulting in major trauma...aka medical....and we all know as per previous posts what a catastrophe that turned out to be.
A letter from jobcentreplus re my claim for ESA...." a change in the ESA rate payable, we have looked at your claim again following a recent change" !!!!!, This is because of a decision on your capability for work. We have moved you from Work Related Activity Group to the Support Group" wtf is that all about??!!, am new to all this.
So.....i have been awarded ESA plus Disability Income guarantee plus extra money because i an in the support group."
I can now only assume instead of a "you have been awarded nil points", they have classed me as not fit for work (till the next time) so i will not have to put in an appeal.
Phew is all i can say.
Thanks for listening and i hope i can give some hope to others.
Am going for a celebratory meal tonight with my wonderful boyfriend.
