Hi there not sure if this is the right place to put this but I thought as long as the information is spread to everyone it didn't really matter.
We are all experiencing the everyday pains and emotional struggles that go with having FM and other ailments that you may have, now on top of that we are all one by one being picked out and having our benefits stopped or decreased.
As a sufferer of FM and a few other ailments I for one know how important it is to retain some form of independents, it is bad enough that we have to rely on our friends and family help us live day to day as normally as possible, things that most take for granted like getting washed and dressed, cooking, cleaning, shopping etc... now the government want us to have to rely on them to provide us with money to help day to day living a little more bearable, have they even considered that some of the things we are saying we can do on their ridiculous forms, are only possible after a cocktail of drugs and or therapies that we have to take or do everyday day to even get up out of bed never mind cope with normal day to day duties.
I am not sure about any of you but I know that I am on 9 different types of medication, all of which cost me £7.65 EACH item, my doctor gives me 3 months supply at a time, which does reduce the cost slightly but it is still £286.20 a year not including any other things I may need during the year like creams or antibiotics etc..., I am sure that some of you have to get yours monthly, how do they think we can pay for them never mind the other therapies that we may need to make LIVING a little more bearable (hydrotherapy, swimming, chiropodist etc...
I for one would feel really awkward asking my friends and family to pay for my medication etc...so will then be back to square one and would then be ticking the NO I cannot do this box instead of the YES I can box which many of us have ticked but can only do because of the cocktail of drugs we need to function...remember this when filling out your forms.
