Like every one else on here who is suffering from Fibro and just worn out by it all I ask this question. I have been on IB for 6 years through various problems. It's only 4 years I have been diagnosed with Fibro. So I got the forms like everyone else sent a letter to say I was on ESA work focused group, as opposed to support group. I appealed and have been turned down and now face a tribunal. They do say on the letter i will not be able to return to work for a long time. I have told them I look after my mother who is 84 and very frail now, when I am able. My Son lives at home and is there to help when he can. So even if I was fit to work I can't as I am a career for my Mother.
So at the end of the day does it really matter? The way the appeal is worded you have to be in almost a coma and literally can't move to qualify for the support group! I have already been to a work focused interview and just explained how thing are then she said she would be in touch in a few months.
Love to know opinions I also get dla but am waiting to hear off them to see if it's granted again and to be honest it's more important to fight for that, as I have my car and middle rate attendance . I am so worried it will be taken away and I will become house bound.
Let me know what you think? Thanks for listening xx
