I am totally over the shock of losing my ESA Tribunal. I have been more focused on a point of anger this last few days.
At the end on the Drs questions the judge had two things to ask me, or discuss with me.
1. Q.You claim to have hearing problems, yet you have heard us throughout!
A. Because you are not all talking at once.
Q. But nonetheless you have heard us?
A. Yes but with Menieres you can have problems on one day that you do not have on another but.........(andf I was cut off.
Q. If you were in a room alone and someone came in to tell you there was a fire, would you hear them?
DUHHHHHH, I doubt very much if the statement of there being a fire would be whispered, more screamed, chances are Iwould gear it. On a funny note the speed I walk I would be charcoal before I got out of the burning building!!!!!!! so what difference would it make if I heard or not.
A very poorly thought out trick question from someone supposedly intelligent enough to judge a tribunal, I think not.
I said tot he usher before going in that I had to bring my daughter(21)in too as she could not be left on her own.
2. Q. How do you care for your daughter?
A. I don't, her father is her main carer.....and I was cut short again.
How did she deduce that from saying my daughter could not be left on her own that she required constant care(which she does)???????? I could have been bringing her in because at the time she had a severe water infection and looked really ill.
Sorry about the long topic, will get to my point now.
Today I went for my hearing test and had various tests done, the follow up tests confirm the findings of the previous tests so you cannot fake them. It turns out I AM losing my hearing in the right ear, hearing loss in the left ear IS more severe that the right and includes a curve in the ear canal that makes it worse. My Fibromyalgia balance problems ARE being severely affected by the problems with my EARS and I HAVE to have two hearing aids, AND the vertigo IS going to get worse so my balance in effect IS screwed and most likely not improve no matter what intervention medicalwise takes place. So Mrs Judge, I really do hope you keep uptodate with blogs about ESA tribunals etc and how disgustingly we, sufferers of Fibromyalgia(and most of us having other illness too)(a life long illness recognised by the government in June 2012 as potentially disabling disease, I guess no one told you)are treated for being open and honest about an illness we would rather not have. So Mrs Judge, if you do get to read this I send it to you as a potential slap around the face with a fresh wet fish. And I bet I speak for quite a few sufferers There I feel better now. And to admin, if you feel I have overstepped the mark and this has to be removed, I fully understand lol xxxxx
