The day has finally dawned and this afternoon I have my EESA assessment. I have tried to prepare for it and gather all the information I can. I have to thank FibroAction for all the invaluable information it has provided. I still do not know how I am going to get across to the assessor how painful and limiting my Fibro is or how my clinical depression affects my life. How do I explain that No One is going to give someone like myself a job anyway. Who will be willing to employ someone that will be unable to come to work due to illness for the majority of the time? I definitely would not employ me if I was an employer. Because of my condition I was bullied mercilessly in my last employment to the point that life was so awful I took 3 overdoses and was admitted twice onto a Psych ward. Im dreading the worse because IF they take away my financial support I do not know how I will cope and I fear that I will spirall down into another crisis with my mental wellbeing, I am lucky today in that my Clinical Psychiatric Nurse is coming into the assessment with me, and a very good kind friend is going to be driving me to the appointment. Please all wish me luck and send me positive thoughts, I will post how I got on and my progress throughout.
