Oh dear, was told by the DWP that I had to have a representative go with me to my appeal medical. So I worked hard to get myself a welfare officer (not so easy for any old person like me). Had to wait 3 months for my first appointment with her, sent in relevant paperwork to inform DWP. Welfare Officer told me don't send in any supporting documentation till you've seen me. Meantime I did as I was told and informed the welfare officer that I had a date for tribunal.
Finally had my welfare officer date last week, she announced that she'd applied for a postponement to my medical as she was not working that day. DWP refused the application, leaving me with no time left to send in my documents in support of my application ! I've spent months collating all this evidence..I'm crushed. I went for help and now it seems all my own efforts to keep on top of it, have all been wasted + I also have to go without a representation after all..honestly I just give in to my fate..kicking myself for trusting someone with my life..I was so organised up until this point !!!!!!!!!! I have a witness to come with me..but just a friend ! In so much muscular pain and migraines..feel so ill and despondent at moment, feel like I'm banging my head at a brick wall..so to say !
