I have just joined and then asked a question when i should actually be on the blog section. Blame Fibro fog lol. I have just joined to please bear with me. As I said, at the risk of repeating myself, I have Fibro, HMS and other health issues, I have just migrated from IB to ESA Support group. I was lucky and didn't need an assessment.

If you are already on IB you have a better chance of being put into either the WRAG or Support group without needing a face to face aseesement or "medical" as Atos call it. I use that term very loosely.It took a little over 5 months and they were agonising. I am also a member of Benefits and Work, who I found really helpful. I hope I will be able to offer help and support to fellow Fibries and am looking forward to getting to know everyone.
