I am in receipt of both ESA & PIP, and had my PIP medical a couple of months ago,, and am in the support group and been granted it until 2012. I just got sent the ESA forms to complete and send before Feb, so that I can get another assessment to see if I am fit to work! I get so worked up about these forms and assessments, because it all depends on the day how bad I am feeling if I can even get dressed, so I end up worrying myself about how I MIGHT be feeling on 'that' day, that I make myself ill, weeks before.! I called them to ask why I am being sent these, as I have COPD, CRPS, and have now been diagnosed ( and awaiting an appointment) with sleep apnoea... work??? I can hardly get 2 hours sleep at a time, am in constant pain, and shortness of breath! I had a medical this time last year, do they honestly think I have had a miraculous recovery?? I WISH!! Why do these different 'departments' liase with each other? Think of the millions they could save!!
