Hi..Im new on this site ... Bear with me..
I was diagnosed with fibro depression and anxiety about 5 years ago. I have had many ATOS medicals..won't go into too much detail . I won my tribunal a few years ago...you'd never think so as I've had to continue more assessments.
All this exacerbated my condition..after a fall I now have chronic sciatica. Anyway, after the latest appointment made for me to be assessed by ATOS I had just about enough and kept breaking down in public ( WHEN I actually went out). and in the doctors waiting room .
My doctor wrote a letter quoting my health condition and that due to repeated assessments it was worse and " could not foresee me returning to work in the foreseeable future"
(He also mentioned to me that sometimes he sat on tribunals(?!)
Anyway ... I phoned ATOS re the letter and they asked me to fax it ASAP and that it would be sent to their doctors for consideration ... By the way .. I'm in the work support group .. Not the support group and I get £ 99. a week approx . That was Feb 21 st this year ...I've not heard a thing... They have continued my money ( ESA income related)
Although I am relieved not to receive any of those brown envelopes lately ..would anyone have any idea what could be happening? .. I feel I should be in the support group ..I've also been advised to claim DLA( I have been turned down before) ..Anyway.. Sorry if this is a bit muddled...My blimmim wrist is aching through typing now. LOL
