ESA appeal

I was put into the working group without being told so i appealed against it and asked to be put into the support group and after reading peoples dreadful experiances i held out little hope. I have a very supportive GP and asked her for a letter which she did and included it in the appeal. Yesterday morning the dreaded brown envelope droped through the door, so you can imagine my surprise when reading it they reversed their original decision and put me in the support group and I dont need to go to the tribunal. So to everyone who thinks that they might not get the appeal, there is sometimes light at the end of the tunnel, good luck to everyone who is still going through this process.

Its good also to hear that you have a supportive gp, i too am lucky with my gp and when i read some of the other members blogs involving gp's from hell it makes my blood run cold, but can i be the first to say Congratulations!
