Well Iv had my first ATOS medical this morning and after being so terrified of it, it seemed to go ok. I took my mum with e and the doctor seemed to be nice. She asked loads of questions and my mum backed me up on how much I struggle when im having a flare. She also seen me struggling on crutches. She didnt ask me to perform any tasks, and said she would usually medically examine me but could see I was in pain and very uncomfortable so chose not to as she didnt want me to feel any worse. She was typing on computer whole time but I couldnt see what she was writing. She asked how often I am having flares at the moment and I told her every week-2 so alot. She said my answer backed up what my medical records say. She said I would get decision in 4-6 weeks. I feel hopeful but I guess you never know as to what they are writing and thinking.
