Hi All, I have just joined this Forum and been reading through some of the blogs. Like you all, I have recently had to go through an ESA Medical Assessment with ATOS. I was dead honest with the nurse who ran the assessment, told her about my struggles with dressing, getting up and going to bed, cant stand to cook and get myself drinks etc.
This week, I got the conclusion letter stating that am fit for work and they put the weekly payment up by £28. Can anyone explain the logic in this?
I cannot get out of bed or dressed by myself, but I can work??? Maybe I should have done what millions of people do everyday and exaggerated the symptoms, basically making out I am nearly dead. Would that work?
Honesty is clearly not the best policy with these people!!!
