congratutations -it's a huge relief not worrying about chasing sicknotes and all the running (or limping) around after them.

i din't know what'll happen in october for you though - if you've been told you're ok until 2014 the dwp should leave you alone until then - fingers crossed that they do

I am in the support group as well and i don't have to send in any more sicknotes too. I can't remember when i have to be re-assessed. I am pleased for you. Its hard work with this disease without having to worry about assessments. xxx

I had the phone call yesterday too - told I won't be called in for assessment and will go straight on to ESA and everything will stay the same. What a relief! Phew!
