Hi all :*
I received a letter from the DWP stating that my sick cert for my ESA was about to run out when in fact the letter was dated after it had run out!!!
Anyway I phoned Drs who were happy to do another for 6 months without me seeing the Dr - I see them roughly every 2 weeks anyway !
Bearing in mind I find telephone conversations almost impossible due to my aphasia and slurr/stammer I also can't listen/process/write down what they are saying - it's too much for my brain to take
So I then called the Central job centre to explain what had happened and the lady was lovely and told me I could go to nearest job centre and it could get faxed across instantly and my ESA released same day!
Problem was I had nobody to take me other half couldn't afford time off work and my parents both work full time and are in a different county!
So me being the stubborn idiot that I am I decided I was going to go on my own which was stupid enough and I've had sufficient enough of a shock to not do anything so ridiculous again!
So I wrote down where I live (in case something bad happened) and other halfs contact number I also wrote down where I was going in case I forgot
Problem number 1: motion sickness on bus
As I got off I promptly vomited in a flower bed!
2 Got almost to job centre and very nearly got run down by an idiot in a car literally he sped up as if to hurry me which doesn't work currently! And he slammed on his brakes I ended up sat on his bonnet
Two witnesses saw it shouted at him and asked if I was alright he then wheel span off
I was a bit shakey then when I got in job centre I burst into tears the security looked at CCTV and saw the whole thing and got his reg plates!
So I spent most of my afternoon with job centre staff and police !
I then had to get bus home again !!! I couldn't read the bus numbers so had to keep asking a couple if it was the no 2 LOL!
Seriously though I had some lovely people come to my aid today it kind of restored my faith in human kind (other than that a'hole driver!)
