Well, I suppose it was too good to be true but after my latest medical assessment I've been put back in the work focused group. So it's back through the appeal system, crazy, what a waste of time and money not to mention the stress it causes me.
I know it's tick boxes and it's not personal, I'm left feeling like a liar and a cheat and it's that that stresses me. I won't lie and try to hoodwink people, so yes I can walk with a stick and wash and dress myself and make meals and cups of tea, but I can't do anything repeatedly and safely and that's not asked at the assessments.
So if it ever gets to me applying for a job, my skills are, can maintain eye contact, move an empty box across a table, move from one chair to another without assistance the list is quite long really, just find me a job that needs me to do those things, but with a half hour rest every hour, and I can't concentrate and it needs to be a quiet environment and within walking distance of home coz I couldn't cope with buses every day.
I can also lift a jug with a litre of liquid in it and it doesn't matter if I can't pour it or if I spill it!
Enough, you get my drift, I'm beyond anger now, but if I must I'll jump through, well climb, the hoops.
Hope you all have the best day you can Janet xx
