It's taken ages to get this far, but I have a telephone assessment on 19th Nov at 0800! I cannot but dread this, too many stories of lying assessors and rejected claims leave have left me feeling it's not going to go well. I supplied loads of evidence....letters from Gp, Consultants, different family members who have to care for me, pages and pages of typed responses to the questions. But I cannot for the life of me see how someone 'asssessing' me by phone is going to achieve a good outcome. It's actually triggering an already bad flare to becoming the worst I've experienced. I woke with a migraine at 0230 this morning and a feeling of such anxiety I just bawled my eyes out.... it hasn't helped the damn migraine and have not managed to go back to sleep. Exhausted.
I'm now questioning is it even worth it at all?
Has anyone had a telephone assessment? I get fibro fog....what do I do if I'm 'foggy'....I know I sound rambling and confused when this happens.
Any advice at all (apart from calm down..because that doesn't help) would be so appreciate.
Sorry for long ramble.
