me again lol

Afternoon everyone, where shall i start hmmm well i have had a call from Atos healthcare asking me to go for another assessment for the DWP... now, as i worked for benefits, I know that these have to be done but, i will be honest, i am sick and tired of having to arrange for someone to drive me there every 6 months for this, every time i go its the same old same old, same questions, same answers what is the point? Since the last time i went i am being treated for Fybro and now have increased meds every 2 weeks for up to 5 tablets per night, that is not including the meds for the pain i suffer from breaking my back 4 years ago. I understand that they do these medicals to weedle out the naughty people claiming but surely they can request medicals from my docs!! They also make you feel that you are doing wrong and lying about the pain!! I also find it difficult to explain myself and also forget lots of things i need to tell them, i do write it down but then i still forget! In lots of pain today especially ankles and feel like the need breaking to loosen them up! lol

Just fed up guys xxxx

  • Sorry your feeling down .. sounds like your doing everything right but the system is not great yes its because of all the people who do clame for no reason ..xx

    Gentle dyslexic hugs

  • aww bless both of you, it really does infuriate me to be honest, as if i want to work in benefits again they must know that i can not and would not "CHEAT" the system!! i would never work in the government sector again. This no sleep business is also doing my head in! i get really shattered after i have put my youngest to bed about 7.30 then about 10/11 i think about going to bed and then "bing!!" a light goes on in my head and says... but you cant as your not tired! i am then awake and restless and then when i eventually go to bed and

    wake up in the morning, i cant get my head off the pillow, its getting bloomin silly now!

  • It is all very frustrating the way the system works its the usual make the ones that really are suffering and support the ones who are clearly just lazy and know how to play the system my little rant over.

    Anyway I was thinking maybe it would be a good idea to keep a daily journal/log explain how your feeling at a point in time, maybe over a few days to a week if possible and then take it to DWP appointment to show to the healthcare worker, it maybe the best way to get them to see and understand what life is like for you

    Hugs and smiles xx

  • Thats a really good idea tess and have just done one up to this point today!! Must now remember to write everything down! lol x

  • It makes me angry that they make us jump through hoops to prove we aren't scrounging! We are treated as guilty and have to prove our innocence. Where is the justice in that?

    Cheers, Midori
