Hi everyone, i have been on disability for a few years. I have Lupus, auto immune hepatitis, Sjogrens and Fibromyalgia. I also have other things going on. Lung involvement and a kidney problem. Five years ago i also had a perforated colon that nearly killed me. I have damage to my colon but the doctor thinks its too risky to have surgery with my health and medictation. Recently i've been getting really stressed about receiving a letter from DWP wanting me to fill in a questionaire and probably wanting me to go in for assessment. I have read a lot about the assessment and watched the dispatches programme...sick note Britain and the Panarama programme, disability or faking, and it seems even the sickest people in society are being thrown off benefits and classed as fit for work. Has anyone had any experience with them and if so what was the outcome? I live on my own so don't know how i will cope if they take my benefits away. I am becoming more and more terrified of going in after seeing how callous they are with people who are obviously too ill to work. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou. Love to all xx
