I am being hauled in yet again for another stupid illogical assessment due to having had shoulder surgery which is not progressing as hoped for. Although I cannot drive,work and definitely can't travel long distances .The assessment is an hour and a half away.I have no one to take me , live in a very remote village and more than that I am about to be asked the most irrelevant and stupid questions where they do not allow you to speak at all.
Back in August I had my ESA assessment due to Frozen shoulder for 4 years and Fibromyalgia for 8 years. Some of the questions they asked were can you walk 50 yards. can you lift an empty box, did I soil myself?
What on earth has that got to do with a frozen shoulder and Fibromyalgia. Inevitably I failed and got Zero points. In two days I have to got through the whole ridiculous procedure again.What happens to people who cannot work after surgery with a sick note saying this.Then the DWP supercede our GPS and Surgeons! !!!!!!!!!!. I could not believe two days after surgery they stopped my benefits. Then
advised /misinformed me to apply for a mandatory reconsideration. This wasted two weeks to then be told yet again that no benefits would be coming in.I dingle mother with two young sons. This certainly worsened my Fibromyalgia as it is stress related. I was hospitalised for four days last summer due to panic attacks.The DWP nearly pushed me over the edge.I spoke to 50 different people,sent in over 180 pieces of paper due to them constantly losing or.not receiving the 30 pages I had sent in. The systems were not updating on time.Which also caused a muddle
It was only when I involved my local MP that I was reinstated. Plus back in May before I had surgery and could drive .I had someone come to my house from PIPS and assess me and qualified for 2 years . It was only after doing a new claimdue to a change of circumstance that they are asking for me to do another long journey for a new assessment.So that is two long journeys for two assessments within a week.Although my GP is insisting I should.not be doing this.Watch the space.!!!!!!!
