Hi all. I just want to share my good news with you. After 7 weeks of having no money and ESA messing about and not telling me things that could have made my claim quicker, I have finally been told It'll be in my bank account today, backdated to 15th August. Such a relief. I can finally catch up on stuff to be paid for. This morning, I was afraid to put lights on and had a jam sandwich for breakfast instead of toast, so I didnt have to use the toaster coz there was 49p left in the lekky meter. I have spent about £20 in phone calls chasing this claim because they take FOREVER and never phone you back when they say they will. Dont think I'll get that back. This system HAS TO GO. So many people are suffering. I told the lady on the phone today, who said my claim was with the Decision maker, "Ive had enough now, I cant do this any more.So if you havent got a decision for me today, I wont be here tomorrow". I have been so depressed, I meant that. I have had to stretch things SO far and rely on my family to support me over the last 7 weeks, but I cant keep doing that. Now I dont have to. Such a weight has been lifted off me and it feels so good. I know I'll have to go through the dreaded medical rubbish again, but at least I know what to expect. Id like to say a big thank you to everyone who's supported me with kind words and encouragement. I love you all.xx
