I filled I the dreaded form ages ago and the result came back last Autumn that I had been placed in the WRAG group....forward a few weeks and an appointment at my local job centre, I went as asked and was greeted (much to my surprise ) by a very understanding lady who took one look at me and instantly decided a reassessment was the only way forward. A week ago, when I was about as low as I have been in years, on the mat arrives the scintillating news that I am infact completely fit for work........news to me, my therapist and pain control team. I imagine the next stage is to go to appeal, but I wonder if anyone could tell me what this entails, I have so little energy and feel completely overwhelmed by the just the the thought of having to go before a panel of people (if that's what it is) to justify a complaint I have had for well over 30 years, on top of fibro I have had anorexia since the age of 11 and now, as a result, considerable osteoporosis and a couple of spinal compression factors as a result. I suppose I've made my bed so I must lie in it, but why is it that we have to justify being ill, when we have been logged medically for so many years, and yet a section of society seems to get away with so much, when they don't struggle with the things we do,
Any insights or advice would be very much appreciated .
