I have written on here before regarding being put into the Wrag group from long term incapacity benefit without a medical. I am in the process of writing my appeal, and I have found a site on line that should include everyone with Fibro along with other illnesses. Forgive me if people on here already know about it. It is NEW CAMPAIGN BY BLACK TRIANGLE.http//blacktrianglecampaign. Have a look, but I am going to appeal under Regulation 35-Exceptional Circumstances, as it states that .this applies if 'The claimant suffers from some specific disease or bodily or mental function,and by reason of such disease or disablement,there would be a substantial risk to the mental or physical health of any person if the claimant were found not to have limited capability for work-related activity. It has examples of letters to send along with the ESA forms and also if you are appealing. There is also a draft letter to take to your own doctor for him to sign, and it states that 'it is the first duty of any doctor is to 'do no harm'. So any-one with fibro/and other illnesses would be at physical and or mental risk. It is worth having a look at the site as I think Regulation 35 would apply to us all. What does everyone else think.?
